Very well put and ITA.

Gold has much better technique that Nagasu, which will, to quote Dick Button, likely "stand her in good stead." Gracie isn't prone to the underrotations that plagued Mirai's career. Plus, Gracie seemingly has that killer instinct that Mirai has long lacked.

I feel like she'd have longevity.
Ashley probably does, too, and I wish her all the best.

Wagner now stands out in interviews and I appreciate her candor even more now. Ice princess = boring. But no mistaking that Gold is just as determined if not more so. Just doesn't show it any more.

And Carolina is 27, Akiko 28. I hope at some point in Ashley's career, she does Firebird. I love the music, and I think she'd make an excellent lady firebird! Sans the actual feathers, please.
