Wow, you're right, Karne. And Plushenko and Gachinski are in competition with each other. That must be a dynamic rink right now. I wonder how he allocates his energies. Just a guess, but I imagine that Plushenko doesn't need much of his time right now; Plushy must be practically able to coach himself. What he really needs is someone to make sure he trains wisely so as not to aggravate any injuries, and someone to watch now and then to make sure his jumps haven't gone off-rhythm in some way that needs to be corrected.
Nothing against Gachinski, but I do hope that it's Plushy who gets chosen as the Olympic skater.
