    If only! Unfortunately, Chan's music catalog history has lacked such imaginative choices as the ones you have proposed. The likelihood of him skating to more worn out skating warhorses is kin to the likelihood that Joubert will skate to The Matrix for the billionth time. I would not be surprised if Patrick skated to Tosca next season with choreography once again from Lori Nichol. Actually, it's more likely that he'll choose an even more safe route as he has done in the past and repeat Aranjuez again for his LP next season. He repeated Take Five SP for 2 seasons, Phantom of the Opera LP for 2 seasons, Tango de los Exilados SP for 2 seasons, Vivaldi's Four Seasons LP for 2 seasons, and La Represion SP for 2 seasons, so he has a long history of doing this, unfortunately.

    Chan
    Takahashi
    Fernandez
    Song

    It's a frustrating thing that Abbott implodes or semi-implodes at Worlds every time. I enjoy his skating.
    After watching Fernandez skate live, I think he's over-hyped. I think he'll most likely be in top 10...but will not crack top 5.

    LOL. Tbh, I think he lucked out on his 5th place finish (shhhhh) :P 11th at Worlds after being undefeated for 15 months will create a 4 quad in LP monster out of Chan!! and who knows, he might master the Quad Axel too!!

    I have a feeling that next season Patrick might have two brand new programs for the following two reasons:
    1. Aranjuez is kinda overexposed particularly to Canadian audience because of 4CC which he generally skips and GPF being held in Canada.
    2. He has already mentioned next season he'd spend more time in Toronto because worlds will take place in London, Ontario. That could also mean spending more time with Lori working on the two new programs. It's only reasonable to present two new programs to please the home audience.

    I want to enjoy without controversy!

    My wanting to look.

    Kevin Reynolds
    His reckless free program!
    4S 4T 3A 4Lo 3F+3T+3Lo 2A+3T 3Lz 3 Kevin! Try it if you can do it!

    Misha Ge
    His daring footwork and cute smile.
    His footwork affected by Daisuke is so powerful. Misha! Do it!

    Brian Joubert 
    Brian! beautiful quad again!

    Patrick Chan
    His overwhelming technique.
    Patrick! If win; in perfection! Then nobody can complain.

    Yuzuru Hanyu
    Strength of his competitive spirit. and his cute smile.
    If the result of his 3-month exercises appears, he surely gets a good evaluation. YUZU! Show the new generation's power that you say!

    Takahiko Kozuka
    I wish that he can express enough the choreography that David Wilson gave to him, and that he land quad two times in FP. KOZU! Don't be tense!

    Daisuke Takahashi
    Everybody knows. I don't have to talk about most about him. Daisuke! Attract the world!

    It's impossible. Don't count on it!

    Last Worlds, Patrick skated two perfect programs and broke 3 records. Many still cried about Takahiko Kozuka should have won LP.

    Bluebonnet, Chan had a major error in the long program (on his triple axel). Anyway, his win was beyond reasonable doubt (which admittedly annoys people just as much).

    You were right. He has had a step out on the landing from 3A. But it was not that much. He has had a difficult entrance and fully rotated 3A. He got 7.78 for it. "A major error" is a little too much to describe it IMO.

    1) Chan, 2) Dai 3) is open. Anyone can grab the medal. I'm sure Artur will be not lower than 7th, though.

    I don't see any problem with his music choice. Whatever suits a skater's style. His is more elegant and classic, thus choosing the material so far has suit him well. Besides, Take 5 and Aranjuez are two very different type of music, one is jazz and fun, the other's more classical and subtle. Lori is one of the world's top choreo, and all her work for Chan so far have been masterpieces, so again, why change when everything's working? Besides, Lori has choreo to many top skaters, not just Chan.

    It's Patrick Chan. No matter what, somebody WILL complain.

    On other note, any chance Keven Reynold will FINALLY cut his hair? I think Chan getting 11th place is more likely than Kevin going to a barber right??? LOL

    I'd not call barely stepped out a triple axel a "major" error. That's a very minor error considering he had fully rotated the axel and almost landed cleanly.

    What I would like to see:

    1) Clean quad(s) from Daisuke finally.
    Specifically, a perfect & beautiful 4-3 in SP, please!!!

    2) Brian getting on the podium in front of home crowd, and his bright smile.
    If he can nail 2 quads both in SP and LP each, give him the Gold!

    3) 2 brilliant performences from Jeremy, and the World medal finally.
    I just love his programs the best, SP and LP combined from Men this season.

    My only wish for Dai this year is, that he finally lands the quad in a big competition, something he has longed for, has been dying to get back after knee injury.

    He does not necessarily win the title this year, at least for me.
    Upon his announcement to stay eligilbe one year ago, I opened up my savings account at a bank in Sochi, literally. I am saving every piece of my wishes to this account, and will do so until February 2014. So no more wishes I would ask this year.
    But I would not mind at all your wishes for Dai to win, as many of you already wrote here, of course. lol
