    Adelina. She is an all around skater with excellent skating skills, huge jumps and the best non-jumping elements. Liza has the cleanest technique and is very expressive, but needs some work on her non-jumping elements and skating skills. I also like Gracie for her beautiful jumps and hope she will make the team (I know, I know, she needs a miracle for it after disaster in SP, but I still prefer her to Nagasu and especially Zawadzki). And I'm not a fan of Kaetlyn at all. She has the transitions but not so much of anything else. Basic skating needs serious work, non-jumping elements are so-so and I don't find her jumps that good, especially her air position

    Adelina has the best spins.

    Liza has the best jumps and understanding of music, but by far the worst spins.

    Gracie has probably the best all-around package of these skaters.

    Kaetlyn seemingly has the best consistency.

    But who WINS in one competition if skates clean?

    I actually disagree on Gold having the best all around package. I find her by far the most boring of the three. Big jumps sure-but that's it. I'll vote for Adeilna having the best package-all the she's the least consistent.

    Kaetlyn has a certain sparkle which is hard to describe. I have heard multiple commentators mention it, although perhaps they can't quite put their finger on what it is. Tara Lepinski said during her NBC SCI broadcast: "...there's just something about her. She has a great presence and personality out there, and for a newcomer she looks very comfortable...". I don't hear these type of comments about the other skaters being discussed. Perhaps Ice Diva nailed it in her post #78 from the Sr Ladies LP thread in the Canadian Nationals forum.

    Kaetlyn's "joie de vivre" may be what makes her sparkle, and enjoyable to watch. Patrick Chan complemented Kaetlyn in an interview after his Canadian Nationals skate by saying he envied her, and would like to get that joy back into his skating.

    I hope Kaetlyn never loses that joy. With all the pressures, it appears to be a rare trait among many of todays competitive skaters.

    As of now, IMO of these four:
    Kaetlyn: Best presence and projection.
    Gracie: Best jumper
    Liza: Steeliest nerves
    Adelina: Best all-around

    How that translates into who will come out on top in a given competition, I have no idea.

    LOL. Why would Kaetlyn's coach be posting here? Geez, I'd like to think he is a little too busy for that.

    Katelyn won Canadian Nationals. If I had been her coach, she would likely have placed last.
    If I am not mistaken, skaters, coaches, judges etc. are not permitted to post on these discussion boards.

    Not certain what you mean by Kaetlyn news. If you are referring to my citing links and quotations, then yes I prefer to backup what I say with references when possible. If you mean I am only posting about Kaetlyn, then you had not been paying attention in the past.
