    I do agree that D/R are not as well matched physically as T/V , i find Eric more artistic and Megan more athletic but the pair is working well together and i like their choregraphy and enjoy watching them.

    Not sure why Chan was brought into this but he is truly a skater's skater. Yes an excellent skater but has not been as fine a competitor this season despite Worlds.He will have to make some changes next season i think. He doesn't seem as confident during competition as before.

    Peng/Zhang got their score raised

    from: 57.18 + 55.24 - 1.00 = 111.42
    to: 61.54 + 55.24 - 1.00 = 115.78 (PB, 3rd best of the night)

    I did think their score were low, considered they rotated everything, had a quad twist and only had one mistake (1 fall)

    This means they will not place 5th, but move up to 3rd. Team China is still in 6th, but only 1 point from Team France

    I just realized the same. But I agree. their score were so low considered they had a quad twist clean throws and a clean combination. as I watched their score first, I thought they are so underscored (in comparison with C/S).

    But how can this happen?

    Now I wonder, why the score of James/Cipres was so low. I think they had a great performance...

    Yes, I too wonder how this can happen? And how did they discover the error - oops! We meant to give x but gave y? I'm... confused....

    Stiffboard Radford and Robot single jumps Duhamel getting silver ? I'd have them 3rd overall, this pair team is 10 times deplorable than Sale/Pelletier. D/R do not deserve a higher PCS than James/Cipres.

    James/Cipres and Peng/Zhang were underscored.

    Eric is actually quite artistic for a male Pairs skater. Megan can do 3 lutz's and was a singles skater as a senior and placed 5th at 4cc in singles one year. She struggled with jumps in this competition but its not her usual.

    if D/R are artistic then S/P I dont know what to say to this crocodile pair.
    D/R having higher PCS than J/C is wrong, they have no artistry and the lifts are stiff.

    J/C are also athletic but they have something else

    After seeing their score, I actually thought: "It's really low, maybe there is a judging mistake?"... I was right! I think that the result was really fair, and that V/T weren't overscored (just the second time this season)...
