As Mrs. P observed: the Shibs had an extended lift, which was the source of their deduction.
Wow for C/B very happy for them. I thought for sure the Shibs would be in second place. Very close between the 2nd and fourth place finishers,
anything can happen in the FD.
Meryl and Charlie what can I say, sounds like they skated a beautiful SD.

Good news from @Z_Donohue:
[INDENT]All is well after collision with Logan. A fire is lit in me for tomorrow's free. "I will not bow, I will not break"!!! Time to go big!!

Looks like a lot of level 4s according to the protocols- has everyone improved that greatly since the GP circuit, or were they generally lenient tech callers this time?
I think maybe the Shibs need to break up and find other partners. They are limited to what they can skate too. Plus Maia needs to go beyond portraying herself as the wholesome niceness princess and take some chances.

I think they'd do worse with other partners. It's not like they've done badly; they have a world bronze medal! And they aren't doomed to third place, a lot can happen in the FD, and even if they do get third they're still going to Worlds..

I am so dissapointed Hubbel & Donahue are 4th. They are my favorite U.S dance team and they arent going to Worlds. I knew the Shibutanis did not have a lock on 2nd place this year. They were going to challenged for that spot. They arent in strong enough standing internationally now to be a lock over other teams capable of top 10 at Worlds (which is all the Shibutanis are capable of these days as well).
I hope the Shibutani's are knocked off the podium. Just too boring and their stock is only declining Internationally anyway. Alex needs a new partner. Maia on the other hand, sorry she is just not that good.
Ah, the discussion is balanced now.
So now it's gloom and doom to get level 4 on all but one element as well as get the second highest grade of execution and PCS of this segment....?
As I said, the other teams have gotten better, which is a good thing. It's good that that U.S. Dance has several contenders to help keep three spots for ice dance. That's a much better situation than the other disciplines where we have to guess who will come through on any given night.
The FD is going to be great! I actually like the FD of all the top couples.
and... World Peace!
didn't she hold him up in CO last year at 4CC? seems to me they're well matched.

I hope that the Shibs go back to Igor. They are technically wonderful and if they continue with that I think the artistic piece could fall into place.
Hubbell & Donahue will probably split after missing the World team this year. So sad. Couldnt care less about the Shibutanis one way or the other so dont care what they do.
I think they would benefit great going to Igor, not just for the tech, but I would love to see what Marina Klimova could do with them. I really like her coaching style.
