    We haven't seen either team compete yet. How can you say S/K threaten I/Z? Let the skating speak for itself. The slate is clean right now for both teams who are going to need time to develop.

    Normally I wouldn't post this here....especially since it's been posted in the I/Z fanfest thread.... BUT - It's a nice picture of I/Z side by side....and it's them hanging out outside of practice for her birthday.

    I think they look very nice together! And this seems like they're getting along off-ice so far, which is awesome

    EDIT: I'm not interested in them getting together off ice or anything. I'm only hopeful that they're getting along and not at each other's throats or something. That's all.

But if you look at her Don Quixote, in fact all her work with Zhulin and her Olympic programs you can see she is capable of a variety of expressions. She herself said that Ave Maria was way over her head, however Nikita insisted that they do it, and that was that.

    I must agree that Schindler's list was exceptional dance - music, idea, choreography and kids' interpretation - everything was great at Junior Worlds - both Lena & Nikita were great. And I know that I was impressed a lot too those times. And Don Quijote was different from Schindler's List, not so great and never skated to full potencial, but very good also. But last three years under Morozov Lena & Nikita were still the same, so I wonder whether such great intepretation was really in them inside or whether it was taught by Zhulin movement after movement, because with another coach they were not able to repeat this expression even once and changed into Hollywoodish couple.

    It would be great if both Kustarova and Zueva would come back to that year and force kids to remember how it was when a music and story played the main role.

    True. Morozov was just clueless in that regard. This lack of desire or ability to help them focus on the music and the story contributed I think greatly to their conflicts as well as his complete lack of morals. It's a pity that they were too young to realize this and also that their federation did not manage the situation more wisely given his reputation. But regardless Lena had walked away from the pairing when they were children citing irreconcilable differences so maybe they were just an incompatible pairing from the get go. We were probably just lucky to have had them these last six or so years.

    Considering what happened in Elena's previous partnership, perhaps it's best that they remain just friends.

    Oh, I agree! I'm all for remaining friends, lol. I just want to make sure that they remain on pleasant terms is all - aka, they're not already at each other's throats, lol. I don't need an off-ice romance, haha

    And I edited my above comment to reflect that bc I definitely did not mean that I'm hoping for an off-ice romance, haha. I'm strictly concerned about their potential to do well together on the ice; and to subsequently hopefully have a healthy relationship - aka, generally get along with one another.

    It's really none of my business what they decide anyway, I was just tempted to say that because of all the drama that happened last time! I was thinking it might be safer that this new Russian team stay friends and not become a romantic couple.

    But as we're finding out at the end of this season with all the partner changes in Russia & Canada, you never know what the future will hold.

    You mean reigning world champion Yana Kudryavtseva, not just "some gymnast". Maybe Victoria should hang out with gymnasts some more, they might help her improve her lines & posture.
