Wew! Congrats to Peter. Like his unpretentious style.

Very happy for Menshov! To me he has the most refined program of the Russian guys and is constantly low marked in CH/IN. Compared to Voronov his PCS are ridiculous.
As always I enjoyed Viktor Pfeifer's skate - good posture, smooth edges. I don't miss the big tricks in his skating.
Although I am not particular thrilled about Javiers programs this season I hope he medals at the Olympics. Simply because Spain is such an outsider.

Tripping on the Podium
I was just checking the results again. With Majorov finishing outside the top 10 it means that Sweden will only have one spot for their home Euros in 2015, isn't it? It kind of sucks for Schultheiss if he is thinking of a comeback.
I am a huge fan of Plushenko but I'm on Kovtuns side here. He won the national title over Plushenko and has proven himself this season with two medals at GP and a trip to the GPF. It didn't work on Euros but he has programs that might work well and seems healthy. At this point Plushenko is nothing but a big question mark.

NBC showed the Europeans on TV this afternoon and I have to say, from a performance standpoint, they all have a lot of work to do still. Javier's program this year is indeed quite disappointing. Even Johnny and Tara said as much. At this point, I don't think he will go back to his program from last year but I can't see Javier challenging for Gold with a free skate like this unless everyone else splashfest in Sochi.
