    Has it really been that long since a good Russian man has come along to get that kind of response? You would have thought it was the second coming of Yagudin. Maxim is all jumps and not much else. Bad posture and not much feeling for the music.

    Haven't seen the performance, but Maxim PCS marks are a bit much

    He got 36+ just two weeks ago in COC.

    However i am not surprised.

    That fall by Artur was strange. The British Eurosport commentators are saying Plushenko wouldn't have beat Kovtun's skate. I'm not so sure.. maybe not current Plushenko..

    Kovtun skated very well with two Quads in his SP. Try to think of PCS as a 2nd Technical score as opposed to the "Artistic Impression" score, therefore, it can move between different competitions.

    I feel his PCS score is a little high but justifiable.

    I'm pretty sure I'll have something to nitpick about Kovtuns TES too - his jumps don't have that much quality, and his spins and steps are hardly above average. His PCS are too high anyway. But really, it's impressive he pulls out this content again! Should be really proud with himself... but then I guess he is

    Oh my not looking good for Ricky. He won't make the Olympic team at his Nationals with a skate like that.

    Which is why his TES is lower than that of Hanyu and Chan from last week despite doing two Quads vs. one.

    That fall by Dornbush scared me. I thought he was going to fall on his face.

    Javier not his best skate let's see where the judges place him. Not crazy about his programs this year.

    Kovtuns PCS are higher than Machidas. I don't know if I'm supposed to cry or laugh about that.

    Unbelievable! It seems like the judges are blind, or something...
