    Ah.. I miss Maxim Shabalin and Oksana. Too bad their career was hampered with his injuries. Yes he let Oksana shine, but he himself had a great presence on ice.

    I agree. They both had great presence on ice. I never liked them so much as a couple though. I don't know why...
    It was the same with Navka. She was great, but not my cup of tea.

He was trying not to be overshadowed by her. This became a sore point between the two not to mention their other personal problems complicating things. I am glad they went their separate ways. I hope they are both happy.

    He and Victoria will have to commit to becoming a new entity which will simply take time.
    Couldn't have said it better

    I think both couples have great potential right now perhaps in different ways. Like many others have said though, it is folly in my opinion to try and speculate which couple will come out on top right now since we don't have much true substance (aka videos, competitions, etc.) to go off of.

    Yeah, this is why the TAT was so upset! It takes seasons to truly build a foundation and now both pairs will have to start from scratch. So I/K's contemporaries will be building on their foundation while I/Z and S/K will have to take a few steps back before they can go forward. But if S/K have it in mind to simply blow by everybody and win gold in 2018 power to them. I would have thought a more modest approach would be best.
