    I'm surprised that Julia LIPNITSKAIA is going senior before it is clear if the rooles are going to change

    Thank you so much, Sylvia!

    No Plushenko or Lysacek, at least yet, but a TBA open for Rostelecom Cup and Skate America.

    Weir in Russia and France: I'm sure he's pleased.

    Kozuka in Kent, wheeeeeee! I've very happy that USFS chose Razzano.

    ETA:

    No Brown or Farris, so they're staying Junior, at least for GP.

    Skating seniors: Lipnitskaya, Gold, Korobeynikova, Biryukova, Shelepen, Osmond.

    No Phaneuf, but a TBA open for Skate Canada.

    Rachel Flatt was chosen for Skate America.

    Miki Ando has China and France.

    USFS chose Donlan/Speroff; I look forward to seeing them for the first time.

    Peng/Zhang have been chosen for China and France, Davis/Ladwig for NHK, and Yankowskas/Reagan (China). There must have been a rules change for "split couples" to be chosen in the initial selection, rather than sitting towards the top of the alternates list.

    USFS chose Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt!

    Skate Canada chose the voidy Azerbaijani's.

    Sinitsina/Zhiganshin and Orford/Williams are skating senior and got spots. Piper/Gilles have Canada and France. (Same rules change for "split couples.")

    Monko/Khaliavin are back with Rostelecom Cup.

    Weaver/Poje get US and China -- wheeeeee! and no direct competition with V/M.

    The New Bobrova/Soloviev make their debut in Kent.

    Chan Vs. Plushenko would be great.

    Good for Razzano again! Almost won Pewter in 2012.

    Lindsay DAVIS / Mark LADWIG quick!

    Ando Kostner and Lipnitskaya are at both, CoC and TEB and at TEB there are also Wagner and Tuktamysheva, that will be really challenging
    Korpi only one assignment?

    :eek: shocking entries really

    No Farris, Brown, OR Yan in the men :( . Guess they want to go to JW again? :shuffle:

    Agnes Zawadzki who had no guarantees manages to get 2 assignments while fellow teammates Nagasu and Czisny only get 1. It would appear those two are getting dumped (not that I don't understand why) considering the host picks were given to Gao and Flatt.

    Why is Zijun Li not assigned to COC? Only 1 assignment as of now...

    Shelepen and Korobeynikova only get 1 assignment :( (Biryukova as well but I expected that for her)

    Armin was passed over for SA after winning pewter and being chalked at 4CC? Meanwhile Dornbush and Rippon both get 2 assignments...

    Miki Ando is coming back (apparently) :kickass:

    It would appear Weir's "comeback" is real :shuffle:

    Lipnitskaya is going senior :)

    Lysacek and Kim are NOT making comebacks (definite?)

    Majarov and Dmitriev have assignments?? :blah:

    Mura has 2 events :inavoid:

    Kiira Korpi has only 1 event :EVILLE:

    Haruka Imai has 2 events :confused: . No Shoji :(

    No Yu/Jin :( JGP?? Zhang and new partner managed to get 2...

    No Stepanova/Bukin or Aldrige/Eaton :(

    Gilles/Poirer have 2 events?

    Donlan/Speroff :respec:

    Overall, I am very disappointed.... JGP should be more exciting :lol:

    So looking at TEB and NHK, it is possible to have two medalists at the same event/two 4-6 finishers... I didn't know that.

    Very sneaky bringing Chan to Russia early in the season, where he can potentially be beaten by Plushenko if the latter ends up going (and is in form).

    And I imagine for Johnny getting Rostel and TEB is the best possible scenario...

    Can't someone please invite Hurtado/Diaz somewhere? It's not like they'd be a major threat to anyone, and they'd be fun to have around.

    TEB looks pretty good - I must resist the temptation.

    It looks like hosts can choose whomever they want, with Takahashi (2)/Hanyu (3) at NHK and Amodio (5)/Joubert (4) at TB. It often doesn't make sense strategically, but it might make the hosts happy.

    Majorov is 15th in WS and is guaranteed one.

    Happy to see that Jeremy finally got Skate America, and that Johnny got 2 assignments :cheer2: :swoon:

    I do wonder what happened with Evan tho. Did he not sign the new agreement? Did he just get a royal snub? Inquiring minds wanna know :scream:

    I'm not at all surprised by Alissa getting one, and a late in the series one at that. If there is an injury of some sort, she has more time to train and recover. Kind of surprised to see Flatt tho o_o

    Dear USFS,

    I'm going to be blunt and say that it was potentially very stupid of you to assign all 3 of your ladies spots before summer monitoring.

    Sincerely,

    I actually like Rachael Flatt...but that doesn't mean I want to see her have a splatfest

    The good news are, that Pluschenko won't compete at CoR because Chan is there :p

    Shouldn't the TBA spot for Dance at SA just go to Chock/Bates? Seems like a no brainer. :confused:

    Julia Lipnitskaia and her coach Eteri Tutberidze are hoping that the rules don't change and she will be able to compete on the GP. They had to get into the GP assignments now, it would have been too late to say after the Congress that she'd like to compete at the senior GP. If there is a rule change and she becomes ineligible because of her age, she will just withdraw and be replaced. She still can get into the Junior Grand Prix.

    The assignments for TEB are awesome, I am really glad.
    Jeremy and Johnny!
    And Aljona and Robin returning plus Kavaguti/Smirnov. I
    would have liked to see Ladwig/Davis too, but I should not be greedy.
    And I am also looking forward to the amazingly strong looking ladies field, Caro and Miki and the three young Russians plus Ashley Wagner!
    The ice dance field seems not so fierce, but as I am a big fan of Pechalat/Bourzat and also really like Riazanova/Tkachenko, it should be great fun!

    I've many random thoughts
    Giving 2 events each skater/couple, the GP opens to new skaters, of that I'm happy !
    Weir I bet he is so happy to skate in Moscow ! :) Nice to see him back.
    I see so many Russian and Canadian dance team, I'm impressed.
    I'm happy Guignard-Fabbri have the possibility to skate in a GP event !!
    I have a question, why do you think Sk Canada choose GIlles_Poirier instead of Weaver _Poje ?
    It's just a question I know anything about canada's teams and politics.
    txs to anyone who want to asnwer.
    :)

    Me too, except the pairs event in China is a killer since it takes place in the middle of the night here. :lol: I'll just have to go to bed early since I do not want to miss Y/R's debut.

    And damn, but I'd like to go to SA now to see V/T and Donlan/Spieroff. Alas, there's no way I can manage right in the middle of the fall term.

    I'm very glad Osmond is moving senior, this is the right call. And Phenuef got nothing - I hope Skate Canada will have a skate off for the TBA.
    I don't remember the last time, if ever, Canadian ladies didn't get other grand prixs besides Skate Canada. We don't deserve them, clearly, but wow....
    I think they are sending a message to Phaneuf.

    Is Phaneuf retiring or is Skate Canada (the organization) just making her work for it? That TBA in the ladies strikes me as odd.
