I'm sorry, since when is Gracie Gold even remotely near or on the same level as Ekaterina Gordeeva when it comes to artistry and interpretation?

Give her the time between now and Nationals as she and FrankC learn each other more and she gets more settled. She looked a lot more settled at SCI with FrankC at the boards and a little unsettled with Scott Brown this past weekend. I am sure that FrankC is working on her mental game - which is where she needs the most focus - as he's been good with that for a self motivated skater that just needs confidence (which is how I'd describe her).
