The score of Plushenko is of course beatable but the problem is when he improves his PCS, the other skaters need to be without any mistakes and considering there isn't an overall consistent skater out there... And now when Plushenko is putting even more pressure on them
how excited he looked after he finished! i loved his "sassy" program... the arms were great, much better than for the short. i think 157 was about 10 points too low....lol. but, he did put the majority of his jumps in the first half... so if his team spreads it out a bit, that would boost his points some... and he could do another combo i think? what level did he get for his footwork?
overall, wonderful outing with a bang.
Protocols are up!
The base value for Plushenko's LP wasn't unusually high. Lots of frontloading in that program - only two jumps get the second half bonus. And finally, how he gets level 4 spins is beyond me.
ETA: Mroz had the highest base value in the LP, but the execution wasn't as good.

Oda's score was higher. His program is better too.But head-to-head, tonight's Plushy would beat TEB's Oda.
