    Protocols are up!

    Sinitsina and Zhiganshin had the highest base tech
    Great improvement today from Sinitsina and Zhiganshin - 5.76 points better than their SP at the Cup of China. Fantastic. Many congratulations to them.

    V&M were superb as always

    Russian commentator said the same thing.

    I'm starting to think the Shibs should move to Igor. Their levels REALLY suffered here. They should not be suffering through the polka!! But alas....

    That's a pity((I liked their dance more than I/K...Hope they'll improve their technical mark to be competitive with the top pairs

    The sad part is their tech is what kept them high in the standings for so long -- so the fact they actually lost in this area is a bit disconcerting. That said, they are hard workers and I think we will see improvement at NHK now that they've had it in front of the judges.

    The Shibs are getting worse and worse since their surprise bronze medal. Their TES just kept on going down. Their PCS used to be competitive for a bronze, now, taking a huge step back. Medal of any color will be an uphill battle from now on for them. Maybe the first year was a fluke because they aren't good technicians anymore.

    Oh, give it up...

    ETA: I dislike I/K's SD intensely .. and not keen on the Shibs' , either..but it's a bit more palatable than I/K's .

    Right? Of all things to comment on. Levels are more important to discuss.

    Mary Poppins was listed as the Shibs' SD on their ISU bio as late as 10/16, which means they probably haven't had that that program for even a month! So perhaps it's not surprising that it's so raw at this point... it is their first competition after all.

    That said, I am surprised they would make such a big change at the last minute...

    Any SP links yet? I'm anxious to see the Shibs' SP. Terrible scores & placement for them at a time when they're trying to rebound from last season's disappointment. I'm very surprised by the choice of Missing for their polka, it does not seem to fit at all, although I'll reserve judgment until I see the actual program. Add to this their decision to re-use Memoirs of a Geisha (why? could they really not find any other inspiring music?) and I feel quite worried about them. The Shibs are the youngest of the Canton teams and had the most to improve on technically--I wonder if the loss of Igor's technical expertise will hurt them the most. :-(

    Where did their technical wizardry go? I don't believe it has become level 2. And spilliband was considered the stronger technical coach so their improvement may be tough. You see it also in v/m and d/w. A weakening technically but they get close to 10's in all pcs so no big deal.

    I haven't seen anything of the competition yet but I SO agree... I think it's becoming obvious that if these teams want to stay competitive technically then they stayed with the wrong coach.
