Like I said if Patrick ever comes back (less than 50% likely IMO, but if it happens) it wont be next season and it will be with a new technical coach. He is not a fool. He knows moving forward he needs to improve technically again, and on no planet will that happen with ice dance and choreography expert Johnson. As he will have atleast a year away he will have more time to assess how the competition is fareing and mulling over his options what a plan of attack is moving forward. It is very likely this new coach would be able to atleast attempt fixing his triple axel, if that is even possible at this stage, something which Johnson never would have been able to do.
