We don't know how well Kevin is healing from his injury. But I have faith that his team will ensure he heals on time and get enough practice ready for Sochi. As for 'energy expenditure', the team event can always be considered a 'run through session' since skaters do run through their programs during practices and training. I think the pressure for team members should be considerably less since 'do or die' is not dependent on ONE skater.

He was not afraid to share his protege with others if he believed that was the best for his student.
