Hiring Connors wasn't as bad as people make out considering she'd worked with him briefly before and enjoyed the experience, and Yuri pushed for it too. (Just because it didn't work out doesn't mean it was unjustified).
The fact that she ended the partnership quickly is telling, she knew going in that it would take a while for them to click. She's been through this with Hoggy. The fact that she ended it so quickly indicates that something happened which showed it was never going to work. So it was best to end the partnership quickly.
I don't blame her for Connors hiring, the sooner you get rid of something which is not suitable the better. I am more worried whom she will chose next. I am not a pro in terms of this, but i think there are no really good coaches around now. Yuri is not the option. He can provide her mental support which is good for now, but no more.
