As for TEB the likely choice is Glebova, but if french federation wants to sell a few more tickets Nagasu could finally get her 2nd event.

You highly overestimate Nagasu's ability to sell tickets. I'd bet that most TEB ticket buyers have no clue who she is. :P

And even speaking from a perspective of a crazy skating fan who follows everything, Nagasu would definitely NOT make an event any more attractive to me. I perceive her as a dead-in-the-water, not-improving-any-more, way-past-it skater. I highly doubt, she's going to make the 4CC and World teams this season.

What if you really like good laybacks. I think Nagasus is still more than good.

At 19 years old I think Nagasu is certainly young enough to reinvent herself. I just can't dismiss her so easily.

I thought she looked great at her first comp of the season.. I hope she gets another grand prix..:)

Well, I live in France and have attended TEB a few times when the entries have been interesting. I would definitely go if Mirai was added to the list...but then, I am not French (Swedish) and obviously a Mirai fan :P

As long as nobody picks Flatt...

I'm sure COC would pick Biryukova so that's a done deal, but something tells me either Mirai doesn't want a second GP or USFS doesn't want her to have it, so that leaves Flatt on the table...

Both untrue, from what I have heard.

USFSA should really pull Flatt and give her spot to Mirai. But maybe they don't want Mirai and Ashley facing off against each other. And they probably don't want any skater to suffer the embarrassment of having a spot pulled even when they can't land triples.

Is there a deadline for replacing Miki? If so, when is it?

At Finlandia Trophy Mirai said that she hopes to get a second Grand Prix. So it is for sure not her not wanting it.

I love Mirai's skating, but I am tired of waiting for her to get everything together on a consistent basis. She's thrown so many chances down the toilet and it bums me out every time. She is, easily, one of the best skaters in the world and positively magical when she's on. I want to see her get it together and be brilliant. But Finlandia wasn't necessarily enoufh to convince me that she's going to make it happen. If she gets a second assignment, great, but I hope she takes full advantage of the opportunity and proves that she deserves it.

At this point, I'm hoping for Osmond for TEB. Mirai's already at CoC, so Biryukova is the most logical choice.

BTW, didn't Leonova only have one GP in the post-Olympic year, but three the following season? One GP definitely doesn't signal the end of a career--in fact, if it motivates Mirai to nail CoC and Nats and whichever competitions she gets this year, it could be the best thing that ever happened to her skating career.

Leonova had two- she got 3rd at CoC and 9th at CoR.

why on earth or anyone for that matter give another spot to Flatt :confused:
1 is sooooo more than enough for her
