    Meg and Eric, and M-T/M are clearly the class of this field, and have the most international experience (outside of Hao Zhang). Lawrence/ Swiegers, obviously are not clearly above all the rest, nor do they have the int'l experience that their compatriots have.

    I think both American teams were a bit dunned in the marks and could/ should have scored slightly higher (54.50 to 56.00 range). If things stay fairly the same in the long programs, it will be the two American teams battling for bronze, but they both need to skate clean.

    Politically, it might be difficult for a Canadian sweep, even if Lawrence/ Swiegers were to perform better in the free skate. And, in any case, the rest of the teams are competitive with L/S.

    I might be in minority but while I appreciate to see side by side jumps other than 3S or 3T, I hate D/R side by side 3Lz, they are far apart and her's always looks short on rotation. It's a bit annoying that the judges usually overlook this aspect. If she landed that lutz in singles she would most likely be hit with Ur or even Dg. Still, a very ambitious program, very difficult and full of transitions.
    well D/R arent the only taht have far apart SBS, B/L comes to mind
    and if B/L get +GOE's especially for Vera's jumps, then D/R surely can,
    though D/R twist aren't that great yet, P/T and B/L still beat them for that

    ITA. It just doesn't look effortless. Their SBS lutz, although extremely difficult, lacks the elegance and beauty.

    Here's a well done SBS 3Toe.

    I completely agree with all of this

    Like I said I would expect at least one American team to podium but what is interesting with two huge mistakes L and S aren't out of a bronze.

    Thanks a lot for the videos. But to be honest, watching the third place team made me having no motivation to watch other teams placed lower than them

    I hope MT/M stick it out for 4 more years after Sochi. I think that barring injury they have the potential to be truly great in a way we rarely see from pairs teams, but they are definitely not there yet.
