    Lots of positives. ET won! The third tier Canadians did well of course that could be spun the other way ET won as expected but the Canadians did very well comparatively and according to expectations. everyone learned and got some experience.

    Also I was at the arena tonight, enjoyed some great skating. Roman's LP is hardly a metal FS, it's an Anime soundtrack or something and I don't even know what's really happening in it or what he's trying to perform to the audience or judges. I feel like his growth affected him and I found him gangly and the choreography to be random, he needs better packaging in the LP. Nam's growth spurt was a while ago and he seems to skate more comfortably now, good skate for him, speed improved from the first time I saw him in person in 2014, posture needs work.

    Keegan Messing and Stephen Gogolev impressed me the most, Keegan is a fast rotater and his jumps don't really travel, but his spins steps and choreography all seem very complete so if he wants to go for harder jumps I don't mind. Stephen, if he competes seniors at Nationals, he wouldn't be out of place except for his height and face, wow, he is such a talent, I hope he stays healthy. Took a rough tumble in the warm up but skated respectably in the free with a few bobbles here and there.

    Elizabet's jumps weren't quite there but I did like her skating a lot, she's very small but fills up the rink really nicely. Lovely skater but a bit of a rough skate, can't wait to see her improve during the season.
    I was impressed with Stephen but wonder if he will have the problems Nam has had when he grew. Also,of course he needs a lot more strength in his jumps - stronger landings and further distance rather than a spinning top. I would suggest that to help with presentation and namely presence here is a little trick. As he is so fair skinned and blond hair changing that vest to say a royal blue would help make him look more "solid" and present on the ice and not so "faded". This visually adds impact. As he matures and learns to control his hand gestures I think he is looking good.

    It's already taken a step up in polish since Wild Rose....
    You must mean Skate Detroit.

    I know it's just a typo, but I thought you might want to edit your post and correct Conrad's surname.

    Yes, he is! I began to like his skating after his lovely SP at Minto. I was happy to see him win the free skate here after a poor short (oh, that was painful to watch ), and he jumped up from 9th to 3rd over-all.

    But he's clearly disappointed with that FS...many doubles instead of triples, and he ran out of time for the final spin.

    Still a beautiful, flexible and expressive male skater though....he's really pushing to bring up his tech following an enormous growth spurt last season, so one hopes we'll see more from him later in the season.
    Thanks for sharing your observations on Matthew's performance. When I met him at the Championnats québécois d'été, I was immediately struck by how tall he was; I think he's around 5'11", and I figured that his height was contributing to his jump problems. In response to my gushing over his presentation skills, he told me that the artistic side of the sport was very important to him. I find it interesting and unexpected that his LP PCS is higher than Conrad's both here and at Minto in spite of the fact that the base value of Matt's jumps is much lower (he doesn't even have a 3A in his arsenal, let alone a quad).

    I greatly appreciate that he's skating to music that no one else in the sport has used before (as far as I know---if someone else had done the Sword Art Online soundtrack, feel free to correct me), and although I'm not familiar with the anime genre, I enjoyed the pieces that he chose for his LP. I also like how this routine and his costume gives him a stronger, more masculine look, and he's exploring a style which is different than what we're normally used to. Roman earned the highest LP PCS score both here (okay, admittedly it was only .14 more than Nam's, but it's still the highest) and at Minto, so the judges actually prefer Sword Art Online over his "The Vampire Masquerade" SP (which is more universally loved by the fans than his LP).

    He only did 1 quad, a 4S.

    I totally agree. Hopefully he'll work on his endurance and skate it more cleanly as the season progresses.
