    W&P got 70 for their SD. B&S got 65. P&B got 62 (?). W&P will most likely win the Bronze at this point. Even if the Olympics is in Russia, B&S have too much lost ground to make up. Zhulin isn't as exactly known as a miracle worker. He polishes his skaters and adds sensual moves here and there, but I don't see him pulling it off. Even Igor couldn't do much with P&B. Fantastic last lift in the SD for P&B though. Something was deducted? What was it?

    Igor must have challenged the deduction, because the protocol shows P&B's score as 63.60, with no deductions?

    You can't really compare two competition because of the different panels. You can't see many level 4 elements -especially CD- at the early season. Skate Canada and Skate America judges gave them even lower ranked teams. I think this is good for B/S and P/B. Because they knew what they did wrong.

    W&P are the bronze favorites at this point, and C&L are their closest challengers, not B&S. Just like I said all along. Yes they were different panels but anyone who isnt blind can see which teams have the better programs and are skating better right now. The scores are actually quite accurate to how the quality of the teams compares at the moment as well.

    If they had the same panel, would B&S and P&B beat W&P and C&L? Out of the bunch, W&P still looked to be the most polished and prepared for Sochi.

    Well C&L will be at NHK with D&W.
    P&B will be at TEB with V&M
    W&P will be at CoR with B&S - and this is where we will see how those 2 teams compare.

    I&K have better FD than W&P
    they are inconsitent but if they it everything they will pass W/P
    I/K they deserve a good marks especially for lifts

    heck than ghost FD scored a 100+
    so this one can score a 108+ mileage

    Sadly, I think you're right. I was rooting for B&S but it doesn't look good for them.

    If I/K can get those levels they are my favorites too. Better skating skills than W/P and C/L. Better programs, new lifts, fast twizzles. They have everything except levels.

    sadly that has been their biggest problem, I&K losing levels they are inconsistent, no doubt if they hit everything they will beat W/P, C/L, etc.
    I liked their FD, better lifts worth +2 GOE, it renewed my like for them since junior worlds

    I&K practice FD & SD

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeYO_LpDrVs

    Two stunning lifts in the first half of the FD. I think the classical style suits them, as Elena looks like the quintessential prima donna. They also did well with Don Quixote a few years ago, until they went astray with some odd programs. This Zhulin guy is just ... hopeless. I'm beginning to think he's in it for the girls only.

    yes their FD should be good to behold, now hopefully with better costumes not all black
    this will comfortably beat B/S FD
