    Is it clear on whether or not Soloviev is retiring or not? I know there has been a lot of speculation that he would continue and skate with Ilinykh.

    What's this mother stuff?

    I think she's a spectacular young lady.

    Apparently she hasn't competed since the last Olympics and gave birth to her first child (with husband, Andrei Deputat) in April of this year.

    Nothing official, but she alludes to the fact that they will be doing ice shows in the future together...

    My goodness but my emotional response to various stages (and programs) of the fabulous Ms B has run the gamut, from wanting to tie a big stick to her back and scream STOP HUNCHING OVER to being genuinely moved by a simply gorgeous Anna Karenina program, she has been and will be MISSED.

    Will Soloviev be joining her though? Ilinykh is not obviously going to return to competition with him. What's next?

    Glad to hear they'll still be doing shows.
