And these are skaters for Carnival on Ice, which takes place after Japan Open:

It sounds like more skaters might be added later.

In past two years, Asada's performances at Japan Open were fiascoes, and the whole grand prix seasons have ended in disaster. Avoiding the "jinx" is one reason I can think of. If so, she could be more "serious" for the new season's start.

But why Suzuki? Murakami should be favored before her, isn't it?

Hanyu is invited to Carnival on Ice. He's going to perform at all off-season shows in Japan. I can understand he needs to earn money but doing shows will be a good training for him.

My 3 hopes:
I hope Suzuki proves that she's still got a few more years in her. XD
I hope Jeff Buttle shines with excellence like he used to.
I hope everyone skates magnificently :D

Why Gachinski? Maybe I just need to warm up to him...

again, i'm very pleased with their selection of skaters. if only time past faster...

which team do you guys think will win?

Both Gachinski and Plushenko? Why 2 men from the same country when there is so many interesting men in Europe?

Mirai is competing in back-to-back Grand Prix events, starting with Skate Canada and CoC the following week, so I can only surmise she doesn't want to burn out with the added travel/event.

Of course, Czisny is slated to compete at Skate America only a couple of weeks after the Japan Open, so who knows?

I just want a competition for her in the beginning of the season so she can bomb her first FS there and then rock the GPs. :cool:
Or maybe she'll compete in any summer competition?

Nagasu has cancelled 4 event trips to Japan in past two years. Probably IMG didn't offer to her this time. I guess Frank Caroll is determined not to send Nagasu to Japan.

Isn't Mirai Nagasu still scheduled to do The Ice tour in Japan later this month? http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79132
