Super excited about this team and couldn't find their fan fest so I took matters into my own hands :)

I am, however, trying to figure out formatting with tables, so if anyone could be of any help, please let me know.

Thanks for the creation, StormyCloudss! I'm happy we now have a fan page to gush over their talent. They were awesome at Nationals and 4CC and will continue their awesomeness in competition. :laugh: I'm also glad to know that Shane is Liam's little brother.

Here's a start on a table for their competitive history. Just reply with quote and you have a copy to paste into the OP and edit. If you Go Advanced, the buttons in the last row let you add and delete table rows both before and after any row. Make sure you are in WYSIWYG edit mode by clicking on the A at the beginning of the top edit row. Background of the A will then be white.

RESULTS:
2nd – 2018 Four Continents Championships
4th – 2018 Canadian National Championships
7th – 2017 Skate Canada
4th – 2017 Finlandia Trophy
5th – 2017 U.S. International Classic
4th – 2017 Canadian National Championships
2nd – 2017 Skate Canada Challenge
1st – 2017 Québec Sectionals
7th – 2016 Coupe de Nice
7th – 2016 Autumn Classic International

They have a bright future!!
My mother thought they should have been ahead of G/P at Nationals!!! And watching this I can see why she would have thought so - the speed / energy / ease of movement and dare I say BOTH have great skating skills!!

Love this new young couple. They have so much potential!
You know when you see a skating team and you cant put your finger on it but they have a certain quality or something special? Well IMO they have it.
Would love to see a rivalry between them and the young Carrierra/Ponomarenko USA another great team in the future!

I've been very amused that Canada has always produced top or potentially going-to-be-top skaters or teams somewhat out of nowhere regardless of the junior circuits such as Kaetlyn Osmond and pair teams.

They are very skilled and well matched to each other.

I thought they had a very promising international debut (depending on how long Kaitlyn/Andrew stick around and how Laurence/Nikolaj's transplant to Canada goes, it could be their only appearance for another couple of years). Good job, guys.

It's possible, but I really doubt it. Laurence and Nikolaj's PBS are pretty close to theirs, only a few points ahead. With the rate at which Soucisse and Firus are improving, I would definitely not assume they'll always be behind. Go Carolane and Shane!!

Congrats to one of my favorite couples on the ice (and off the ice!)

14th is a super respectable showing for their first worlds, and if anything, I think they've been a bit underscored. Very excited to see how they progress now that ice dance in Canada has opened up a little.

Will update with videos when they get back up and are unblocked. Thanks ISU and Fuji TV :curse:

Carolane and Shane have Skate Canada (expected!) and NHK, which I think is awesome because they have (dark horse) chances to podium. Skate Canada with G/P, H/D, and S/K as main competition (but home field advantage!) and NHK with P/C, H/B, and M/R.

NHK is always such a treat for skaters because the Japanese fans are so gracious, kind, and appreciative. Really excited to see what they do this season, and anxious for more news given all the changes at Gadbois this summer, I really wonder where they are on the totem pole. Below P/C and H/D for sure, but above H/B and C/B? What about the Danes and S/D? Thoughts?

I think they're a team that's important to Marie-France et al. as a long-term investment, since they could conceivably be Canada's #1 within a couple of seasons, and I'm sure that the Canadian coaches, at least, value that.
