S/H need to mature. She looks like a kid and they have choppy stroking. Her jumps also seem tiny and she seems to two foot . I guess they could develop into the next big thing, but I dont see the smooth look that some of the young Russians have for instance.
S/H will compete in junior final instead of senior final-- their coach LuanBo said.

They have speed ,transition, the whole package.
Which their weakness are the spins and her single jump(to my eyes, it's too low,just above the ice)
S/H's basics ARE poor. Just take a look at her edges, in particular. I think the program is choreographed as busy to disguise their flaws, and it works well. Which is not to say that they don't have great elements or personality on the ice - but that doesn't mean that their basics don't need a lot of work.
I think calling them the best team in the world is a bit ludicrous at this point. Potential? Yes, they have it in spades. But her SBS are tiny and prone to under-rotation, the basics need work as I mentioned above, as well as in general unison and pairness. Those are things that come with time. I think they skate a bit "small" still which is understandable given their ages.
If she grows much, I can't see them being a suitable match, because he is so short. That said, I don't believe for a second that she is actually 15...
For S/S's costume, I still don't get the pink. The Pink Panther is the name of the diamond, isn't it? Why the character in pink? Isn't she supposed to be the thief?
S/H are moot at this point. As soon as pubery hits her that team will be done, she will have out grown him. Unless she finds another partner (very hard to do) I give them a year or two before they are out.
