In her early years, Ashely skated with a wonderful abandon. She seems now to hold back too much imo. Also, she announced in a tweet during WTT that she has found the "love of her life". Being in love can be quite distracting. Imo she should have tried the 3/3 this season, except possibly at Nationals if she were't being successful with it.
Like some others, I expect Gold will probably move ahead of her next year and that will be something else for Ashely to deal with. And , maybe, even a change of coach, if Nicks ups and retires.
I agree that she should either go with the 3 loop/toe or 3 toe/ toe in her Sp next season. For the Lp maybe she should stick with the double axel sequence. There are too many people doing the double axel/ triple toe
combination in the Lp. What about a double flip, half loop triple toe. Would that get her the same value as the double axel triple toe? She needs to fine a combination equal to the value of that jump .
