    Chan talks about the quad

    He seems to have completely changed his tune. There is also an embedded story in the link about Tessa.

    Talk is cheap. That's why there's so much of it. We'll see what's what when Patrick actually puts the quad out there at Skate Chanada. Hopefully without leaving behind the other elements of his skating he's already known for.

    Yes this is a completely different approach, well..if you get on the other side of the quadland you find it beautiful ...
    I read he is landing them in practice for SC but i havent seen vids, but the one he landed in the summer was gorgeous, to be honest it was so good i thought it was a triple

    I hope for his sake that he lands it today in the short. He's talking like he had a religious experience.

    I love Chan's skating, but I've gotta say (and this is assuming the reporter's somewhat at fault, not entirely blameless like I suspect) he really does lack of self-awareness. Glad he's going for the quad

    All his talk about Plushenko doesn't look healthy to me.
    Please Chan NO MORE Just go and skate with quad or NO quad!

    His next competition in Russia and next Olympics in Russia as well. He probably is wondering how people in Russia will accept him next four years. That damage he did last year by talking not respectfully towards Plushenko’s programs with quads now needs to be fixed. He knows he will get respect from antiplushenko fans in Russia but he more cares about media and main public opinion. It is all about PR now, and I don’t see people will buy his “new” opinion about Plushenko’s quads. inho
    At least I don't buy it, anyone else?!

    It's a mental game from canadian media

    Very much doubt Russian skaters will need quads in Sochi to win, but Chan surely will need 3, same as Plushenko needed 3 to win in Vancouver, nothing can be change in old kingdom


    He now understands what 2006 Olympic champion Evgeni Plushenko was talking about when he insisted that quads are so important, you shouldn’t be an Olympic champion without one.

    Now, Chan thinks it’s “kind of weird” when a skater doesn’t put a quad in his short program even though he’s known for doing them. He said he was shocked that world champion Daisuke Takahashi won the NHK Trophy event last week without a quad, and he’s been doing quads longer than Chan has been doing triple Axels.
