    sky_fly - I don't generally go about correcting people's spelling (I'm sure I would need it as well as anybody ), but it's "grim reaper". The Brothers Grimm are the ones with the fairy tales. The reason why I'm mentioning this at all, is that I'm now picturing Sokolovskaya as Maleficent.

    What's with this continual insistence that his new coach is Sokolovskaya? Nothing's been announced yet.

    Well, karne, look at it this way: if it isn't true, than no matter how much people say it is, it won't make it so, so it doesn't much matter from that perspective.

    So, assuming Sokolovskaya really is that bad news (what do I know about Russian coaches? - or most coaches, to be honest )

    - either it will turn out to be true, and you will be prepared for it

    - or it will turn out to be false and you will be pleasantly relieved.

    So, as a Rumour Repeated So Often It Becomes "Fact", this seems to be the more harmless variety. Meanwhile, I suppose there should be some official announcement of Gachinski's coaching situation soon? Though if it were already a "done deal" there would be no reason to delay announcement - or would there?

    I don't think so
    LOL, it appears that Plushenko has more originality and variety in his choreography than you have in your posts.

    Plushenko is planning to return, so this changes things.

    IMO there's a very good reason. The shock factor is going to be quite funny. I can't wait to see the reaction of people here.

    I can see Sotnikova winning if she hits because the judges have consistently given her better PCS than Lipnitskaia and Radionova ins't on their level yet.

    But who would seriously put Medvedeva and Proklova over Lipnitskaya and Radionova in a podium prediction?

    It's not like any of these girls are inconsistent - quite the contrary... They're quite dependable. The only wild card is Sotnikova and since her problems in 2012-13 she hasn't really been bombing as consistently as she was when she first came onto the scene, so she still have room for a mistake to still place above most of the rest.

    Proklova is certainly a threat. Medvedeva too, especially if she starts skating a bit faster (other than that I have no problems with her, she's amazing). But they aren't beating any of the top 3 at this point unless those skaters make multiple mistakes.

    I agree my prediction is unlikely and maybe even absurd but stranger things have happened. I was thinking of a shock podium of unlikely skaters skating amazing!

    I'd like to see Gachinski make a comeback. I know he's had so many problems, but Kovtun isn't exactly a study of consistency either. Gachinski's just got so much potential, and I find him lightyears ahead of Kovtun artistically. (All this assuming Plush isn't going to return).

    For ladies, Sotnikova if she's there (and I suspect she will be). She'll get a reigning Olympic champ boost, and she's been National Champion how many times now? Yulia second if puberty is kind to her (and I really hope it is). I'm rooting for Tuk to make a comeback, because like Gachinski, she's just this bottle of talent.
