I too see alot of greatness from Joannie. The first and only time I've seen her skate live is at Nationals in 2002 and she was enjoyable to watch. And watching her on TV from then on forward, she remindes me of a young Josee Chouinard.
With Nationals this week, I'd like to see a fresh new face on top of the podium, and like someone said, others like Bellemare, Currie etc... who have been out there , Joannie has probably improved and developed more so than the others. No disrespect to Jennifer either, just to me, I find her "slow" in her speed, and just doesn't have that same "spark" as to use to. So I'd be a happy Canadian if I saw Joannie on top this year at Nationals. I think she would do extreamly well at World's too. I mean you've got to give her a chance !!
