I’m not distrusting you but perhaps there are some misunderstandings or misinterpretations between Russia and Japan
The old R&J program was not originally choreographed by Abe. B&B started to choreograph R&J in September 2010, before Hanyu skated it in any shows in 2011. Then R&J has undergone some editing in Russia in summer 2011 so that's why you see some changes in choreography between ice shows and later in competitions after the 2011-2012 season started. About the selection and final change of coach, that's tricky stuff that JSF would usually announce after the contract is signed. For example, you don't really see the Japanese media say JSF asked Plushenko to be Hanyu's coach but was declined, so that stayed a "rumor" until Plushy confirmed it himself. Well, you can treat Hanyu seeking B&B as a "rumor" because JSF would not announce this either. What I was trying to tell the thread opener and other fans is that what's done is done. Hanyu is now with Orser and Wilson. Let's not keep bringing back the old program. I think the new R&J is a nice program and just let Hanyu skate it well with more emotions next time and the judges as well as new audience will like the new R&J program.

I don't know when did you start to follow Hanyu, but Abe is not his childhood coach. His childhood coach is Tsuzuki sensei, but he's not going back to Tsuzuki either.
