    I think it would be worth a tryout, since they're both at the elite level. Again, I do wonder if they will even try out, since he skates for Canada and she skates for the US. They're both American citizens, but Bryce might want to skate for Canada, or Canada may be reluctant to let him go.
    But if he has dual citizenship, is release really an issue?

    Yes, Skate Canada can still make it almost impossible for him to switch country considering his age, which means he can't afford to wait 2 years. But in his case, I believe there is a chance Skate Canada could release him given he is now without a partner and no real prospect in sight.

    I don't think Bryce is really 6.0", at least I didn't feel he is that tall when I met him. He is definitely very lean, maybe a little too much for a male pair skater and looks a little funny off ice when he wears his glasses.

    Another thing people haven't mentioned yet here and this is public knowledge so I am not disclosing private information is that Jessica Dube has been dating Scott Moir for some time and Bryce Davidson has publicly stated he has misgivings and mixed feelings about his skating partner seeing another guy for some time now. Jessica seemed to separate her personal life and work life well but Bryce was the one who thought this could affect their partnership and not in a positive way. I couldn't say anything more because the rest is not public information and the mods will nail me if I say anything more.

    So anyway, when Bryce said he was surprised that Jessica decides to end their partnership, I can't say I am surprised. If they are still skating competitively with real prospect, that's one thing. But he is now injured and they are without prospect...well, that's really tough with personal elements mixed in there...

    Bryce has a girlfriend himself.. if he was saying Jessica shouldn't see someone else that strikes me as hypocritical..

    All of that brouhaha happened some time ago, and yes, it was very public. But Jessica and Bryce have actually looked very happy and comfortable with each other for quite a while. I doubt their personal SO's had anything to do with this decision.

I think the question is if their body type/line is compatible. As I recall, Bryce is sort of a tall & lean type guy, whereas Caydee appears a bit more compact & muscular. If they do a tryout, their coaches will no doubt evaluate their look together on the ice to see if a partnership could work. Seems like a tryout would definitely be worth it.
    Denney is definitely taller than that now, and Davison is definitely shorter than that, but I still think that could work. Their look together would be odd (she's just not that polished), but beggars can't be choosers. At least they both have experience at a relatively high level.

    A few years ago, a relatively unpolished girl from Ukraine came to Germany to meet a relatively unpolished man. They are now World champions.

    Well said relatively unpolished girl from Ukraine has much better skating skills than the unpolished girl from America.

    Jessica seemed to separate her personal life and work life well but Bryce was the one who thought this could affect their partnership and not in a positive way.
    From the rumors I've heard, I think your leaving quite a bit out Wally. It seems to me that both Jessica/Bryce had issues seperating personal/professional.

    A nice article about Bryce and their split, by Steve Milton:

    If I recall correctly (this was published in an article, but I lost it long ago), the main issue was that Bryce and Scott were good (perhaps even best?) friends before the romantic split, so it was difficult for him to see his ex date his best friend, to the point where he and Scott drifted away from each other, and were no longer as close. I guess it's not unreasonable to see that that kind of situation would cause a problem, but they seemed to have worked past it -- their World bronze medal did come more than a year later.

    As for the split... I'm sad to see yet another top Canadian pair split, but it did appear as though they had stalled, and it was wonderful to see Jessica smile in her short program this year. That beautiful smile right before the step sequence? I think that was part of her rediscovering her love of skating.

    I don't know how many of you have seen this video taken and posted by Patrick Chan featuring his for-ever roommate Bryce? Funny dudes. This would be a sad breakup too if Bryce doesn't find a partner and go on the road again soon

    ITA. That was really nice to see! Best wishes to them both.

    Real Facts on Dube/Davison

    Okay Folks here are the real facts about Jessica and Bryce from a Canadian Source:

    http://tsn.ca/figure_skating/story/?id=357362

    I am not surprised about the split; they have had a bumpy road for the last couple of years - since Jessica's horrible accident with his blade. Good luck to both of them whatever path they take. They were a lovely couple to watch.
