Hi!
What do you people think about Sale and Pelletier?
I feel a little awkward with those two:they are so fun to watch but do
they have the ability to stand their ground on the technical level of
the worls champs?
And another simple question:who is still amateur in this list of
skaters:
Kulik,Eldredge,Kwan,Butyrskaia,Slutskaia,Kazakova & Dimitriev?
Thank you for your explanations:)
Calliope:)

Yes I think they can. I've only seen them once..I think it was the Masters, but
I was *very* impressed with how good they were for being together for such a
short time.

They all are. None have giving up their eligibility by skating in un-sanctioned
events. Kulik, Kazakova&Dimitriev, and Eldredge are all foregoing eligible-only
competition this year. Kwan will be skating at Nationals, Worlds, and probably
4 Continents. Butryskaya and Slutskaya have been doing both pro-ams and
eligible only competitions.

I love them.  Wonderful presentation skills and good technical, esp.
considering how short a time they've been together.  It should just get better
and better as they work out the kinks.  I saw them in person at The Masters and
Jamie's smile reaches the top row.  She looks like she's having a blast.  I got
to chat with her too, and she's very personable.

I'm really impressed with them; especially since they've been together for such
a short while.

I think so. They certainly have some great moves and they seem to handle
pressure very well. I think these two have what it takes, if not this year then
soon.

Their unison is excellent, considering how short a time they have
been together.

Jamie's skills as a single skater are impressive; last year, she
competed in Senior Ladies at Canadians, and looked as if she
belonged at that level. If she and David can convert those
singles skills into pairs moves, they will have the technical
stuff to be competitive on the world scene.

Pairs at Canadians should be a VERY interesting competition! There
are a LOT of pairs who could be in the top ten at worlds (probably
not on the podium, this year... but it is possible).

Would their previous experience in pairs have helped them
to get the unison together so quickly?  Or is this something
that has to be re-learned with a new partner?

Actually, I was kind of surprised at the problems she seems to
be having this year with her triple toe.  That certainly appeared
to be a jumpt that she could count on last year.  Would she
have lost some training time on the triple toe due to concentrating
on the pairs elements with a new partner, or do you think that
this may be a sign of more troubles to come.

I thought at Skate Canada that they had already made very
impressive inroads into the pairs elements.  Just a couple of
glitches on timing, I thought.

And finally a pair whose performance abilities match.  I found
they were really stunning together.

Should be exciting.  Actually the men's competition is shaping
up to be interesting as well.

Other than Bereznaia & Sikarulidze (sp?) and Shen & Zhao, I
cannot think of another pair who come automatically to mind
as podium finishes.  I think that this year could be one of the
more wide open pairs events at Worlds.  If our Canadian pairs
could get some momentum going, they could have a chance.

But there!  Slap my wrist!  I'd better not be tossing that
Canadian Monkey onto the back of any of our pairs!

I think it must have helped; although I think they must
also have a natural synonimity (is that a word? :) in their
skating rhythms -- that is, they naturally match very well, and
thus it is easier for them to achieve unison than for other
recently-matched pairs.

She's probably converted some of her jump training time into
practicing the pairs moves. Or maybe she's just temporarily lost
the timing. Hope that's the explanation!
