I do wish we see more variety of programs out there instead of the same 4 or 5 choreographers.

I guess David has that dancer's touch. Isn't he a dancer first before a skating choreographer? Plus he pushes his skaters to do their best, he tries to look for their strengths. And the skaters who work with him like him very much.
it's more of conflict of interest reason, Sandra Bezic has a long lasting contract with NBC as the commentator, and they don't want her to choreograph elite skaters, otherwise it will bring the question whether she can comment without bias on the skaters she worked with or skaters choreographed by others.
Sandra Bezic did choreograph for a CoP skater Yuna Kim even though it was a gala, "Don't stop the music," not a competition program and competitive programs for Joannie for more than a couple of seasons IIRC.
Also, it was her who suggested a bond girl and Gershwin piece as Yuna's Olympic programs to David and he said that at the moment he was so mortified as Sandra's Gershwin program for Barbara and Paul was "untouchable" masterpiece for him and he quoted her as his "mentor and inspiration." But Sandra gave him the blessing and he created those programs for Yuna.
This info was revealed during David's interview with PJ in cbc sports around March after Olympics.
