    Patrick Chan not Ruling Out Competing at Next Winter Olympics

    I saw the Vancouver Stars on Ice show last night and Patrick Chan looks in great form. I also saw Patrick interviewed on the news for a charity he was involved in and he dropped the hint that he could set his sights on the next Winter Olympic Games. Go Patrick!

    Good for him! He's still young and perhaps needs time to re-focus and build. Whether or not he does go for it, he will still have the accolades from this past quad. If the current field gets complacent this upcoming quad, maybe he will pull a Plu and come back and shake things up.

    That's good if he stays unretired. Him, Hanyu, Machida , Ten, Dai, Fernandez, Kozuka?, and Brown will keep the men's field quite entertaining thru the next quad when/if they compete against each other.

    Yeah with the field having gotten better maybe he will be more focused... Perhaps some of his inconsistencies were because he felt he could get away with errors since his level of skating is leagues above the field.

    Imo, it looks like Chan and Asada might take this next season off, but come back after that

    its best Chan retires and never come back in competitive figure skating
    it will help clear all his fraud and tarnished results

    "Fraud" implies a deliberate intent to commit harm. I hardly think that his splatfest at the 2012 (and 2013) worlds count as "fraud" or deliberation to bring about a false or improper result, at least on his part.

    The room to fall? None of those guys is stable. They all fall. If they continue, why not Patrick. With Chan- the more, the merrier.

    Completely disagree with you for SO many reasons.
