If the Zaretskis are really retiring, I hope Alessandrini/Vaturi can get a second spot.

Plushenko... :eek:


And Beknazarova/Zuev - didn't they reportedly split?
I thought Sarah Meier had retired as well, as had the Zaretskis. Oh, well, we'll know soon enough.

My bets on TBA spots for France: Marroco, if she has a solid first outing, and Amodio...

I hope Kanako and Laura can be top 2 at SA, all the other ladies are a snoozefest. Maybe Maxwell for the final USA spot? I can hope.

I don't know who they'll pick for the third Russian ladies spot; all their other ladies above the age of 13 or so who aren't doing the JGP pretty much suck. :shuffle:

I would imagine the TBA spot at CoR pairs will be for Mukhortova/Blanchard, if they're prepared by then. Love having GP assignments out, it's a nice break in the dearth of skating....

I didn't think M/B would be able to skate until Russian Nationals, am I messed up on the rules? Or am I confusing them with V/T?

No Yannick Ponsero? Hmm. :/

For US men, only Johnny, Jeremy, Adam Rippon, Ross Miner, Stephen Carriere, and Brandon Mroz...and one TBA spot. Our Jr Worlds team of Messing, Mahbanoozadeh, and Hochstein will either be going back to JGP or waiting for people to withdraw from GP...

At the moment, there's only one SA spot to fight for amongst Katz/Lynch, Zhang/Toth, and Dobbs/Jacobsen...kind of a bummer there but we'll see who withdraws and what ends up happening...

For some reason, I expected Suguri, Van Der Perren, Meier, Gimazetdinova to be retired by now.

M/B will be able to skate, since Maria represented Russia, and won't have to sit out a year like Volosozhar. Blanchard hasn't skated internationally in a while.

Suguri's never going to retire :EVILLE:

NHK Trophy is the toughest GP this season!

:eek:

COC and COR with Miki, Yu-Na and Akiko!

:cheer2:


I wonder when certain skaters (Pang/Tong, Johnny, Yu-Na) will start withdrawing ;)

A couple of days before the competition.

:D

And still Plushy?

AFAIK he is still training

Gozeva maybe, or Artemieva, or Kozyreva... depends on their results earlier in the season... Biryukova is old enough, but she will go to the JGP.

Monko/Khalyavin are still in juniors? Why??? :duh:
2 spots for Zawadzki? And no Skate America? How is it possible?

I hope Shoko Ishikawa gets the TBA spot for NHK Trophy. I like her.

:)

Ooooh, Kozyreva. I do like her and she had some solid senior B results last year. But yeah, either her, Gozeva or Artemieva. I'd give Kozyreva or Artemieva the chance, though.

For the JPN ladies spot - maybe Ayumi Goto? She beat Nana Takeda at Nationals, is the highest ranking lady at Nationals with no GP assignment, and she has a 3F, unlike Nana. I think she's 18 and had some decent result in the a Senior B, but I could be confusing her.

No Ponsero? :confused:
I'm also surprised to see Zaretski's, Bekhnazarova/Zuev (isn't he retired?) and Zadorozhniuk/Verbillo on the list.

Haven't half of them retired?

Wow, I thought half of these skaters had retired already? :eek: Plushenko :scream:

TEB not looking too bad, although maybe not as exciting as last year either.

My favorite events by discipline:
Men: Skate Canada
Ladies: NHK
Pairs: TEB
Dance: Hmm this one's tough, all my favorites are spreaded very evenly :drama: But maybe NHK, TEB and CoR

TEB looking a bit meh, but who goes to TEB for the skating anyway? ;)
