I like W/P but I think C/B had the better program this season. W/P's FD is just so boring compared to last year's.

They need strong music and a dynamic interaction between them.
Sound of Music was sophomoric, followed by the soporific free dance. I hope W/P will dispense with the schmaltz for next season.
W/P certainly did NOT have the better performance--they were slow and cautious, but made mistakes anyway, as they fought through the twizzles and then she fell. Clearly, doing two events in one month was not the best thing for Kaitlyn's recovery.
At the beginning of the seasons, everyone started out tabula rasa and B/S beat the crap out of them. At the 2end of the seasons, B/S are world medalists. I don't see W/P beating B/S and C/L ever again. They can stay for another 4 years and will not medal. They might not even beat C/B ever again.
I/K on a good day will kick their *** as well.
So basically the same position now for the next 4 years.
I have to say I agree, chuckm. I thought W/P's programs this year were a big step back from the previous year and just really didnt play to their strengths. Kaitlyn in particular is expressive and dramatic, and I think she does best with fiery, emotional, strong music. Neither of this years programs fit the bill.

Kirill Khaliavin is taller with 7 cm than Monko, they are not the same height. We have seen teams more even in height, like Denkova / Stavyski and that didn't prevent them to become world champions. I am expecting M/K to be in the mix for the team next year, despite your bashing.
