    Comments:
    1.) Volosozhar/Trankov, clearly a class of their own. There was only ONE element (pair spin) where they were even matched. The amount of +GOE is unreal. 10 points. Let's consider that for a moment. That is like doing nearly two more SBS 3Ts with +GOE.
    2.) For of those you wondering why it's so close in places 3-6, one only has to look at the individual element. Each of the teams in those places had a costly element. For Stolbova/Kilmov, it was the lack of a 3Twist. For Berton/Hortek, it was the error on the SBS jumps, as for Castelli/Shnapir. And for Denny/Coughlin, it was the mistake on the throw jump. And in the inverse, each showed a clear standout element as well. Denny/Coughlin had the twist/spin, Castelli/Shnapir and Stolbova/Klimov had great throw, C/S also had a great death spiral, Berton/Hotarek had a great lift. The fight for bronze is not over.
    3.) As for the two U.S. Champions, it was interesting to see how relatively close they are. Denney/Coughlin won on base value, but Castelli/Shnapir blew them away in execution with a high GOE. Castelli/Shnapir had a better lift, throw, death spiral and step sequence while Denney/Coughlin had the edge on SBS jumps, twist and spin.
    4.) Moore-Towers./Moscovitch was not always 2nd individual elements, but they did solid enough on all them (plus high PCS) to easily be in 2nd.

    Thanks so much, Mrs. P!

    I'm excited about the Canadians, and it's great to look forward to seeing V/T shine in the LP.

    Thanks again for doing this!

    C/S have really stepped it up a notch in the SP this season. They have beaten D&C in it twice. However, their weakness has been the LP. And SBS jumps.
