    I think that between Mishin and Plushenko is a kind of relationship who is very seldom between a coach and his student. They understand eachother very well, Plushenko could do all the tricks Mishin wanted to develop, he was very hard working, was the perfect match, the friendship went further than expected. Now it is not the fault of neither Mishin or Plushenko, such things are like that. So the other students of Mishin would better not compare their relationship with Mishin with those between M und P, but with the kind of relationship Mishin has with the other students.

    The title of the thread is a little bit missleading as Mishin said "probably" ...

    Yes, but I understand Artur. Artur needs some new things, new ideas, new approaches. Because for Artur the biggest problem isn't Plushy he finished the competitive sport.

It worked with Plushenko but he was a one in a million talent.
    The jump technique certainly did work. Artur's 3A is still one of the biggest and best in the world and he almost never misses it.

    It's definitely very good technique but he's been struggling with overall consistency. I'd classify Mishin's approach as 'high risk, high reward.' If all of the stars align themselves, the end effect is great. With Plushenko it worked because he was such an extraordinary, unique talent and had an excellent work ethic as well.
