I wonder if any of the teams who made partner switches are having any regrets? Obviously starting with a new partner means a lot of rebuilding and they (and we) know that going in. But still... Curious.

Wang/Wang seem to have a bright future. So nice to see Zhao at the boards.

I was thinking the same when I saw Kristrin. I guess her scores would be different if she had stayed with Dylan. Never mind. I liked Wang Wang today. :)

Thanks for the streams!

Unfortunately the audio seems to be out of sync on the Eurostream... anyone else getting that? Any alternate stream with it synched?

Not sure why, but I have a soft spot for Ziegler/Kiefer. I know they're not a top team but they are adorable. I like that they are happy about their score even when they are still in last place. They seem to be just trying to do their best and aren't terribly worried about rankings.

I thought PCS of W/W could be higher. That's a wonderful skate with nice presentation. I bet if they are Russian, their score would be much higher.

I'm not up to date with pairs's splits but let me take a wild guess that people who make that decision probably couldn't stand working with each other any more and a new partner with a lot of rebuilding and struggles still sound more bearable :confused2:

Not true in the case of Moore-Towers and Moscovitch. They got along very well as partners. No reason (AFAIK) to believe that their friendship does not continue post-partnership.

Their partnership ended because they have different long-range goals.

DM/G: I wish all their elements were as pretty as they are. But I always find myself rooting for them. They seem like such pleasant young people.

I really like this routine for Sui/Han, so playful and the lyrics don't bother me in the least.

Well Sui/Han definitely have cat class and cat style! I really love this program for them. Suits her personality on ice and I really like the choreo highlights to the music. :)
