I don't know if I agree with Hanyu's win in the free either. However, I think that Team Chan needs to take a look at the protocols. While Chan left a three toe on the the table and had a level 3 spin. Hanyu had a fall, level 3 footwork and a level one spin.

Missed the performances, but wow, Yuzuru won! Even with the huge lead in the SP, I was a bit hesitant to say that Yuzu would win overall given how much Patrick can score. I guess judges are sending a message that it is possible to defeat PChan, even when he had (from what I read) a pretty decent LP.
And it shocked me even more that Yuzuru won the LP too, which is a bit strange compared to the trend of previous competitions.
Happy for Oda as well.
I guess it would be Yuzuru, Daisuke and Oda (or Machida?) to the OG?
How did Patrick look in the K&C this time? Maybe this will be the motivator for him to work even harder for the OG.
