    We would like to announce our recent coaching change! Just finished up our first 2 weeks at the Artic Edge! pic.twitter.com/deWCwMAX87

    Interesting move, though I'm not surprised.

    This will be an interesting dynamic at Artic Edge with the Shibutanis and Sinitsina/Katsalapov. And Reeds are there too, right?

    Though it seems to be an amicable change. Jean-Luc Baker favored their tweet.

    Yep! The Reeds are with Marina now too apparently. She's taken on quite a few new teams

    Probably smart. Krylova has a lot of teams and they were training with their main uS competition for that third worlds spot- H/D and H/B. Not sure if this will ultimately change things- I see H/B as majorly on the rise- but at least they saw the writing not the wall as to where they were going to be priority wise and are trying to do something about improving their prospects.

    Yes, Krylova is Aldridge/Eaton's former coach.

    I believe that TurboMom (a GS member) was either A's or E's mother. IIRC, TurboMom's posts consistently gave the impression that A/E were very happy with Krylova and Camerlengo; that A/E loved belonging to the training group at DSC; etc.

    Possible that those sentiments remain true -- at the same time as what flutzy says, leading to a tough decision for A/E that they would benefit from a change.
    Perhaps TurboMom will post in this thread to add some insight.

    Thx for the news, Mrs. P. BTW, I see that IN already has updated A/E's bio -- which now lists Zoueva and Scali as their coaches [ETA: and choreographers].

    As far as results:

    Weaver/Poje -- top team internationally; 2014 World Silver medalist
    Hubbell/Donahue -- top senior U.S. team; 2014 4CC champion
    Hawayek/Baker -- top junior U.S. team and will debut at the senior level; 2014 Junior World Champs
    Paul/Islam -- no. 2 Canadian team (in DSC); 2014 Canadian bronze medalists. With Virtue/Moir out, there might be some motivation to get Paul/Islam to edge Gilles/Portier for Canada No. 2
    Aldridge/Eaton -- second senior U.S. team; fifth at 2014 Nationals; 2014 4CC bronze medalists

    So yeah it's a bit crowded. In Canton, they'll get more attention, I think.

    AFAIR, weren't A&E working with Scali a fair amount of the time? So its's perhaps not surprising that they followed him to Canton?

    I would have liked to seen them go to Igor instead.
