Ok, so back to interpretation....I know that Dorispulaski has written about how she/he hates that Chan just has music in the background, that someone with his skills should be more musical. I would love to hear his/her more objective take on the PCS in general and I and PE in particular. At the same time --- it is amazing to me how a clean and powerful performance can overwhelm, for me, the importance of these distinctions. So, I can't stop gushing.....sorry if it offends.
SkateSkates, last year D/W received a perfect 10 for their POTO interpretation. If they do, he does.
I half joked about this scenario before: The factor for PCS is 2 so that its ceiling is exactly 100, supposedly to match the presumed TES ceiling. Now that Patrick has scored over 100 on TES, making it a real possibility in an international competition...........
eta: I got it! Patrick Chan is underscored in PCS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm watching it on CBC. Basically Patrick bombed practice - he didn't land the quads at all (according to Irving).
^ given the outcome, that's kind of hilarious.
Ah, I feel so honored to be called a brave soul. That's too much, but I'll take itI believe jettasian was being facetious. He normally is very supportive of Patrick (at least, he was one of the few brave souls who was defending Patrick during Skate Canada).
Chantastic all the way, even when he's down and beaten, I have always support him.
Wow, Wow, Wow! What an incredible Canadian Nationals! Patrick Chan! I am officially a Patrick Chan fan now! I was afraid of saying anything before the Canadian Nationals, for fear of jinxing him. This is just what I have been waiting for!
From a quadless-Chan last year to one of the most consistant quad guys this season, first outing was with a quad in SP and a quad in LP. Now one quad in SP, two quads in LP, one in combo, all perfect, and 3A, total 7 triples, and a 2A long program still with complicated footworks, first class spins. Can't get any better than that! What an incredible, incredible guy!!!!!
197.07 is too high? Who cares?! If any skater could do it like this, he'll deserve the same. I'm not going to waste my time to try to find any flaws to prove that he does or doesn't deserve the score he got. The truth is Chan is the best in the world right now. This time, he proved it on the ice.

and Siberia82, thanks for the info. I hope he continues to shine, I really enjoyed his (Balde that is) program tonight and think it might have been the first time I saw him skate.
