This is a big confirmation for Davis and White. Traditionally they have lost points in the SD and came back with the free. The spread is enough to give them a victory in the FD if they skate up to par with what they have been doing all season...even if Virtue and Moir are clean.
I don't disagree with the results though I would have V and M closer to D and W and I would have oddly B and S closer to P and B. I and K and V and M need to work on levels.
I'm not Moir's biggest fan, but I don't get what was so bad in that article? He said they don't watch D/W when they're on the ice. Every skater/team says they don't watch other skaters when they're practicing so that they don't get distracted.
Moir: “What we took from last year’s Grand Prix finals was a pretty hard lesson. We were trying too hard to prove that we were the best. That doesn’t really work for us. Luckily, it happened at the Grand Prix finals because we were able to take advantage of that for the world championships.
“It would be nice to only learn that lesson once.”
So what exactly you found objectionable in this quote?
And reading it again, it really does seem like the author was trying to build up some big tension filled dramatic moment, when it really is nothing of the sort. The skaters rarely ever interact during practices, they're concentrated on what they're doing.

With that said, I really liked D/W and V/M's routines!
