Kevin gave the performance of his life! Who would have thought he'd win the competition, but good for him!!
Too bad about Yuzuru's performance.
And so sad for Daisuke, but besides the jumps, I thought his performance was in a league of his own.
Yan!! I love him! His jumps are like Midori's. I sure hope he won't injure himself with those humongous jumps. Midori broke her ankle twice...

I'm so disappointed. This competition was so weird! I'm sad for Daisuke and think he has been punished a lot as the others weren't exactly their best this night either. But one cannot really deny that this just was a disaster for every jump. I just don't know what happened....tiredness and nervousness, I guess. Don't know this whole event left me so unsatisfied. Euros was much better. I want to be positive but it is just so hard right now. Kevin Reynolds - good for him. Technically a class of his own today, that's for sure.
So Reynolds got +1s and +2s for his (slightly) cheated quads with tight landings and not a lot of flow coming out of them.
In all fairness to him, he did land pretty much everything he planned to and his jump set up was very difficult.
But the PCS being in the high 7s and 8s (he got the third highest PCS score of the evening!) is way way too generous.
Just because a skater lands his jumps, doesn't mean he has suddenly started to meet the PCS criteria. Same as with Aaron.
Wow what stunning results! Good for Kevin Reynolds and max Aaron. Weird how all Japanese skaters had Huge jump troubles. Can't believe how many urs takahashi was hit with. Most since 2009 I guess. Just very surprising. This is what's so interesting about the increase in jump difficulty in men's but even with that who would have guessed his result? Stunning meltdowns from Japan.
Who do you think should have won? (Honest question, not meant as bickering or something like that).Originally Posted by Ziggy
if i know correctly, kevin's jump basic point is the highest in this season.
and he cleaned that tremendous program.
So i think his pcs is rewarded for the high level components
i think it is rightful, his pcs was similar with Hanyu and takahashi who have some mistakes
before, announce the score I worried about he would have damage in pcs, go down the rank lower than hanyu, but fortunately it did not happen.
