I think Wagner will retire? Or maybe take a hiatus and comeback later?
Ashley turns 27 in May. If she doesn't come back for the 2018-19 season, how much of a skater will be left after 1-1/2 seasons away? Patrick Chan took one season off, was only 24 when he returned, yet he wasn't quite able to return to his previous ascendancy and kept slipping further back as the years went by. I can't imagine that Ashley, who struggled with the 3/3, 3z! and URs at 26, would be able to overcome those deficits at 28.
