I've also seen Ashley live -- at Skate America. I will grant that she doesn't have blazing speed (nor is she super slow), but she DOES have is an amazing power and presence. You could sense her energy even as she was warming up.

Macassar88 WAS at TEB, so I'm hoping that he will reveal his thoughts in due time.

Rejoicing in the land of Kwan
I agree. I never implied Ashely had Kostner-like speed or anything like that; I think she has good speed and nice flow around the ice. She doesn't appear to be creeping at a snail's pace and nor does she look labored or unsure of herself as she moves around. Ashley's presence is wonderful on the ice. She takes command from the instant she steps out there and that kind of confidence is very admirable...even more so when she skates the way she's been skating b/c she's backing that confidence up with a great performance.
