For now I think you are right. All the other talk is mostly speculation. Evan siad he needed a break from skating/training and Johnny probably needs one too. They both put in alot of training time leading into Vancouver and have some different opportunities right now.

It was known already before the Olympics, that Evan will not participate in Worlds. As a team-player he gave the chance for the substitute to have time for serious practicing.

But I think it is hard for fans to know just what skaters are thinking.
Evan and Johnny are skipping Worlds but neither has announced his retirement.
I suspect neither of them knows for sure right now whether they will resume serious training for competitive events next season. Alot could depend on various opportunities they are considering.
It doesn't sound like Adam was caught off guard - it sounds like the opposite in fact. He has been training hard and Worlds will be a good opportunity and experience for him.

Adam's big jump is an iffy 3A, If he lands it, will he be podium bound? His spins are more than adequate and is Flow is second to none.
His back is pumping when he's doing backward crossovers. It just bothers me greatly.
