    I think he's going to finish off the podium, maybe 5th or 6th.

    Totally agree~

    I was amazed by the improvement on his spins, super centering and speed, best of I've seen this season. I would like to point out his SP has more speed and power comparing with the one at Worlds. His speed just blows me away from the TV

    I think he lost some sure-footedness on his jumps because he has way too much speed going into his jumps. That superior speed would cause some balancing problem and sometimes throw off the timing on the take-off. To be more sure-footed, he might need to slow down a bit before the take-off or to have the exact timing, this is really a trade-off.

    Patrick has all the tools to medal, he just has to perform as best as he can.
