I think their FD this year is great, his injury held them back a bit at the start...and their SD just didn't work. Did they start from scratch with a new one on that? Maia isn't as much the little Orphan Annie goody two shoes as you make her out to be. She knows how to work those stunning eyes of hers and i've seen her do so. She's grown up quite a bit the past year/ year and a half.
I don't really agree that Maia is that stiff. She has great lines and extension and I love that she doesn't flail her arms during the dances but is quite intentional in how she uses them.

This is only their second season together. Why on earth would they split?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.
Honestly, I have no idea what the Shibs did to inspire such rage but I'm now hoping with every fiber of my being they place second and top 5 at worlds.
Fantastic! These results tell me C/B are going to worlds! I have no doubt the Shibutanis will end up with the silver medal as they have one of the most beautiful Free Dances in recent memory. What joy to have so much depth in US Ice Dancing.
My heart aches for K/G-S ! I smell another 4th place!!!
H/D another great team that somehow lost their momentum during the gp.
Can't wait for the final!
This is the first time I'm seeing the Shibs SD...and for the most part, I quite liked it. And, I really don't see Maia as stiff either...and personally, find her quite lovely to watch. What I did dislike was the costume, particularly the headband/tiara thingy...I think that somehow made her look as if she were playing a little girl playing a princess (of course, I never loved Navka's headbands much either, so perhaps this is just my peculiar perspective).
