    The -2 was so for excessive bending.

    B/A were clearly the class of the field. The program doesn't do much for me. A little corny. Great entry into opening lift. Fantastic ending. He looks beatific (as he should). She just looks beautiful.

    The 95.85 they got was behind V/M and D/W winning FDs at TEB/COR.

    It seemed with K&N that his hands were often going over his head to secure the lift positions. I think they lingered there too long on one of them and the lift was declared illegal. That would explain their low score too.

    i love the program so much more than last year's...she has so much more sureness of movement this year, i think light years ahead of D/W, imho...i think its a race between V/M and B/A for gold in Vancouver, with both D/S's and D/W for bronze...i know D/W scored higher, but for overall programs, i think they're 3rd...

    wayyyy better than Tosca, Linichuck knows what she is dooing. Nice lifts, ncie movments, no thaaat dramatic. Low scores comparing to V/M and D/W but both of this teams test their programs before the grand prix. will be great see what they can bring on skate america, they will be more confortable and made some ajustments. I can't wait to see.

    you have a point, both V/M and D/W competed earlier, and this was B/A's dry run....i think it can win gold...

    Barring upsets (cause that never happens!), the top three ice dance teams at the GPF will all be from North America.

    Wouldn't the fact that B/A competed later work in their favour, or at least be neutral? On the one hand, B/A had more time to refine their program, but on the other hand, judging gets tougher (does it) as the GP season progresses.

    Two things: B/A had a higher base value (all but one element was level four) than V/M and D/W, but both those teams outscored them on the TES (which is quite typical for the two). Now that their PCS are catching up, though.... Even if you argue D/W benefited from weaker competition (thus playing up the difference between the teams), every one is gonna work hard to increase their points. Should be an exciting season.
