I'm still in "wow" mode! Really, really, really can't wait to see this and hear first hand reports!
ETA protocols up - looks like it wasn't perfect perfect perfect - no sign of falls, but double toe on the quad, and still so amazing.

Wow. It looks like Chan had another amazing skate - the protocols indicate 2 quads + 7 triples. He hit all of his jump elements. Can't wait to see it!
Happy Chinese New Year, PChiddy. Bring home the bacon.
Yup, all positive GOEs. looked like he had a clean free skate. And he did only quad double. There is still room for improvement!!!! Five judges gave him 10s for Interpretation. I can't wait to see what a perfect interpretation would look like.

Yup....GOEs look really good to great; got a lot of high pcs, including a lot of 10's especially for P/E and IN
ETA looks like his opening combo wasn't stellar - lot's of +1 GOE's, and if I'm reading this right, 2 level 3 spins....to think there might be more points here is crazy (yes, even with any/all national inflation).
Anyway...just wanted to also give a big shout out to all the competitors and really, congrats to the medalists (i'm so happy for all of them).

I think Chiddy might have just peaked. It will be interesting to see how he handles the rest of the season and whether he can maintain the momentum.
It would be wise of him not to attend the 4CC so as to carry the momentum from the National directly to the Worlds.

Early thoughts about assignments next year ( Firus can't go back to JGP )
Nebelhorn - Ten , Balde
Firus will probably get a different senior B ( Findlandia for example ) if his jumps improve over the summer. Morais might go with him.
I have a feeling that Chan, Ten and Balde will be going to Skate Canada.
Early JGP's will be given to Nam, Mitchell Gordon , Peter O'Brien. With Rogozine likely going to JW, we should be able to get 14 slots ( the maximum )
WOW Patrick! Congratulations to Patrick, Kevin and Jeremy.
Cant' wait to see Patrick's FS

This sounds amazing. Chan got over 300 points? What did he do--dust the ceiling? Wow. I can't wait to see his programs. Go, Patrick!

Chan's skate is up on TSN. Fantastic skate...I hope, like last year, that he carries this phenomenal skate to another world title.
