    If they could just get better choreography it would be okay - but I think that moving to a better coach would be nice too - look at how many improvements Bobrova and Soloviev made during the offseason with Zhulin!

    Yes, B&S showed what can be achieved if a team really works with Zhulin, but I rather doubt I&K will be going back to Zhulin any time soon.

    ITA, but my main point was that, if a coach and team really gel and both coach and team are gifted, they can work wonders even in less than a year. So if Ilinykh and Katsalapov were to leave Morozov, I wouldn't completely despair for their future.

    Yes, but at this point, where are they going to go, and will it make a difference?

    They certainly did not make the advances with Zhulin that B&S have; I will not speculate why.

    Yes, a coach can make a big difference in a year in dance if a team is really dedicated & really hard working & really talented; B&S have shown that is true.

    Sometimes it takes longer, but still works (Weaver & Poje and Krylova & co.)

    Personally, I don't think that they will even have a shot at the podium in Sochi because of their lack of work ethic. And even if they did start working hard today, I feel like they are behind 6 teams and would have to beat four of them to medal. And it's not like any of those six teams are slacking. That said, I don't want them to give up. If they work really hard and show massive improvement, they might be rewarded, or a team ahead of them may fall on steps or something and lose massive points. And them not medalling in Sochi wouldn't be the end of the world. If they started working their asses off with a good coach now, they could lay down a good foundation for a charge at 2018.

    After Sochi zueva will lose two teams to retirement and if they want to move back to Detroit they could. Or was it just illynikh there? Anyway maybe she could convince katsalpov to go to detroit. Unless she retires to have kids with morozov or something after sochi lol!!! Best thing might be her breaking off the relationship and moving away. Like miki ando. No engagement no more coaching but that's also a different situation as she is older and near retirement anyway she doesn't like it that much now. I/k needs to face a c/l or p/b or even b/s but I/ k could definitely lose to the shibutanis as has been shown before this season.
