    Too bad for Chan but not really out of the ordinary given all the other expected favorites who bombed their first competitions. Kinda bad to leave that as your last impression internationally prior to the Olympics.

    The big name skaters automatically get the top pcs even when they are far from their best.

    I know. I think I won't watch the Olympics live; it'll be too much ): Every time I watch pairs and singles now, I get scared that they'll fall on the jumps.

    OH PATRICK! D: Hopefully he'll redeem himself in the LP; didn't Joannie do that? Okay at least he stays in final flight.

    For sure janetfan. I think Patrick's scores for transitions were a bit high but very high for performance for that performance. Still, the placements are correct IMHO.

    Yes, I was pleasantly surprised at how fair the judging was.

    Yeah, but falling in the warm up could be nerves too.
    I think Patrick psyched himself out. All that talk beforehand about how he couldn't wait to show the world what he could do and show he could beat Plushenko without quad blah blah ... That kind of talk gave me a bad feeling. Patrick took it too hard that he had to miss his first Grand Prix. It's like he felt like he had to have some sort of mind-blowing competition at SC or nobody was going to take him seriously. But he just needed to skate clean! We already know what he's capable of ... he's the world silver medalist! Hopefull he will calm down for tomorrow.

    General comments: Daisuke seems a bit out of shape still in that his spins and jumps seemed a little labored but the footwork is so fine. Hooray for Jeremy for having one of the best short programs this season. And big hooray for Denis Ten. I've loved this little talented scrappy guy since last year. One of the most promising young skaters out there and a tough kid. Brezina looked a little weary. Patrick, well we all know how good he is but he's really rusty. Going to be an interesting season. Carriere is being surpassed.

    I expected a clean sp from him, because that was his last season's program, too. When one does something for so long, you'll think the experience will outplay the nerves, performing on autopilot and all.
    I more expected an impefect lp.

    Congratulations to the top 3. I'm so impressed with Denis Ten tonight! What a showman! So far Denis and Michal are my favorite youngsters going into 2014.

    10 points difference between the top 6, that's the way I like it, tomorrow's competition will be very interesting!
