I agree that in this era she should use the off season to see if changing coaches would be the best thing for her because her pcs is getting worse. Judges are really penalizing her for her lack of ice coverage and her choreography. I thought I saw her go further to the corners this season but her pcs went down so maybe it was just superficial and shift to a coach that is more pcs than jumps would be good.

Don't you think she has had enough to contend with this season, in trying to bring her former form back, without being surprised that she hasn't had the time/energy to work on IMROVING other areas? A bit unreasonable, I think. Give her time. This season is a recouperating one, she is doing well, all things considering, I think.

I think what hurts Liza`s the PCS the most are:
1. Lack of wow flexability moves that some of her teammates have.
2. Lack of speed and ice coverage at times.
3. She is being made to wait her turn for the current veteran stars to retire after Sochi, barring being so great she literally forces the door down, which she hasnt yet.

I think I more or less agree with this. I definitely don't think this is "her" season - although I don't think she should be written off as medal contender. And I think that next season a gold in one of the greater competitions, while not completely impossible, is unlikely. I'm not worried about her, though, not at all - her time will come.
