I welcome their return, even if it means my Shibsibs might lose out on a GPF spot (though I'm hoping with the material they have, they'll continue to progress). Ideally I'd like both of them there.
But I like that B/S do not resort to sappy romantic programs...and that they don't make being romantic or sexy a necessary requirement for ID success.
I am in the minority that I don't think Papadakis/Cizeron will dominate the entire quad. I think we'll see a lot of shuffling among the top teams, like we saw in the last quad beyond Davis and White and Virtue and Moir
If you look at the previous quad (apologies for misspellings):
Shibutanis: 3rd (2011), 8th (2012), 8th (2013), 9th (2014 Olympics), 6th (2014 Worlds)
Pechalet/Bourzrat: 4th (2011), 3rd (2012), 6th (2013), 4th (2014 Olympics), 3rd (2014 Worlds)
Weaver and Poje: 5th (2011), 4th (2012), 5th (2013), 7th (2014 Olympics), 2nd (2014 Worlds)
Bobrova/Soloviev: 6th (2011), 9th (2012), 3rd (2013), 5th (2014 Olympics)
Illynkh/Katasopov: 7th (2011), 5th (2012), 9th (2013), 3rd (2014 Olympics), 4th (2014 worlds)
Cappelini/Lanotte: 8th (2011), 6th (2012), 4th (2013), 6th (2014 Olympics), 1st (2014 Worlds)
Chock and Bates: N/A (2011), N/A (2012), 7th (2013 - first appearance)), 8th (2014 Olympics) 5th (2014 Worlds)
The Shibutanis had some major drops, which is often noted, but the rest of the teams had some swings as well, just not as drastic.
Sorry for the slight OT, but point is that I agree with you Snow, that B/S could shake things up next season.
