^Excellent opportunities for D/L and Y/R! I've seen promising programs from D/L this summer. But, not too much from Y/R. I hope Y/R can start to 'gel' and bring it this Fall!

Caitlin YANKOWSKAS / Joshua REAGAN are added to the roster for NHK, and Lindsay DAVIS / Mark LADWIG to Skate Canada: http://isu.sportcentric.net/db//files/serve.php?id=3673

Damn OF COURSE I forgot all new teams with a previous Top 10 partner have priority over the regular alternates..:rolleyes: dont like that rule at all.. :scream:

I think that GP ticket buyers would rather see Caitlin Y over a Baldwin brother. :lol:

That makes sense: the top of the alternates list is Split Couples who placed 7-12 at WC's with their previous partners, and Ladwig fills the bill. It also makes sense that they specified 7-12 and applied it to 6th place finisher Yankowskas :lol:

Worse this year, since last year, they got one for each qualifying split (aside from host picks) -- Chock/Bates earned one each from previous partnerships -- but this year, they got a shot at initial assignments and, by being at the top of the list, were first in line for a second.

Yes that's not fair at all to the already established teams.

Yrétha Silété underwent knee surgery and reportedly will miss this season -- see the French skating news thread for the press release link: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?p=3669869#post3669869
Her 2 Grand Prix assignments are Cup of China and TEB.

Sui/Han may also miss the Grand Prix season although this has not yet been confirmed officially - see the thread posted in the Trash Can yesterday: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=84792
Their 2 GPs are Cup of China and NHK Trophy.

That's too bad for Silete, wishing her a quick recovery.

Sadly for Nagasu fans, Mirai will probably get passed up yet again because she is already set for Cup of China, and the French Fed will probably replace Silete with another French lady at TEB.

Sad for Silete....

As for replacements.. probably Candice Didier will get another chance at the Grand Prix as a TEB host pick and any of Korobeynikova/Shelepen/Biryukova for COC (Nagasu is already entered at COC).

Didier is still skating but at another rink in the Paris area. She is gonna have to skate well at the Master or they will give that 3rd spot to another country.

Silété. :(

Knowing French Fed, they'll probably give Silété's spot to another country. :P

With Silete out there are now two French TBA slots for TEB. I don't think Meite has two assignments, so I imagine she'll get one. But unless someone else does really well at the Masters, I agree that it's likely the FFSG will give the third spot to another country.
