Even if skaters and coaches are talking amongst themselves (as is only human nature), I guess that I would like to believe that the Toyota regulars would have enough sense and mutual respect not to spill any beans to an entity such as TSL, which obviously is not going to keep them to itself. I do hope/believe that EL treats everyone around him with respect, so it is a shame if others do not reciprocate.In any case, glad that you were not implying anything about Hochstein himself.
Regardless of how the leak to TSL happened, my overall opinion remains that Team EL chooses to show relatively little to the public. It is their choice to make. The downside of their choice is that some people who are hungry for updates will extrapolate from the dearth of information and believe the worst.
