    I really liked him in the nationals. You could tell how dedicated he was this time. He had more energy this time than in all 3 grand prix events. And thank god, he changed the spiderman costume. If he keeps this up, I may become a fan.

    I'm not happy about Machida's retirement, but this definitely improves Maxim's chances for medaling at Worlds.

    watched Maxim's ex at national's gala, surprisingly like it. it is kinda dorky and amusing, you can tell he is indeed trying to improve his blade work and use of whole body.

    Maxim said that he had prepared two versions of the free skate for WC: with 2 and 3 quads. But I doubt he will land 3 quads. Probably to get the podium, he must show best perfomance of his life. But the main interest I have is another point. He is maybe the only skater who doesn't land a combination of three jumps. Because he doesn't know how to land other jumps (even 2Lo). That is he wants to land another quad to get + ~5 points. But he doesn't want land 2Lo to get ~2 points. And he is called the best male skater in Russia right now. I find it quite wierd.

    He's been landing jumps more consistently and he's been landing more difficult jumps. AND he's the 3rd man I think (After Reynolds and Menshov) that have landed 2 quads in SP. I can see why.

    I hate people talking all this bullcrab about him.

    Exactly! 2nd at Euros should give him more confidence to do really well at worlds. He's probably going to be the only one doing 2 quads in a SP this Worlds.
