I think it's taking time to work through the changes.
    Exactly. I think we forget how young they are. Maia and Alex are still young enough to go to junior worlds for heaven's sake. But I really think Alex's injury has really affected them too....it seems Alex is emerging from the injury.

    Well, first and second are pretty much set in stone unless either D/W or V/M decide to implode on Saturday.

    Also, what a great job by Meryl and Charlie! They're really setting the stage for the Olympics.

    This is a scandal in the making! How in the world did B/S jumped ahead of a P/B??? This is so wrong on so many levels. It really is sad.

    While they could possibly move up a place or two, my prediction would be them moving down one spot, passed by I&K who they only beat today as they had a bad skate (I&K had way higher PCS still). So probably 9th place, matching their result of last year. The only team ahead of them they have a decent shot to pass is their own teammates but it seems the USFSA have already decided C&B are their new #2 team.

    Menshov is probably having the biggest laugh of his life with regards to the Russian man and women.

    P/B had a poor skate. B/S had a strong skate. P/B had less training time due to injuries. B/S were able to grow.

    Man, Kustarova must be so pissed.

    I really think that US paid Zueva for giving a better program to DW as probably Canada did for those Olympic masterpieces. I think VM and DW are the same in terms of skills, but these two couple of years VM's programs are just worse than DW's.
    So happy for BS...they truly deserved their score))))

    Oh please. I dont even like B&S but P&B were shamefully overmarked for a crummy skate today and deserved only 6th place at best. Their beating W&P and C&L was a total joke.

    We'll see, won't we? W/P is a big question mark -- they have a totally new FD and it's hard to say how it will do. Also the Shibs beat C/B in the free dance at 4CC.

    B/S simply put out a better dance today than P/B's disappointing effort. I would have had B/S ahead of V/M by a small margin, mostly because I thought V/M were PCS-overscored by about 2-3 points.
