    If Glebova posts a score like she did at Merano Cup, she could land on the podium. I think it will likely be Kostner, Leonova, and .... . Hard to say without knowing whom Russia will send. I think Biryukova has a fair chance, since she won Finlandia and got a respectable 4th place at CoR.

    Kostner and Leonova for sure.

    The last medal will likely be one of Shelepen/Korobeynikova/Biryukova (whoever makes the team), Gedevanishvilli, or Korpi. I'll go with Shelepen though, assuming she makes the team.

    It will be interesting to see who makes the Russian team. I think Makarova is definitely out; she bombed at all three of her events this season.

    It's Kostner vs Leonova.


    Then Shelepen, Biryukova, Gedevanishvili and Korpi fighting for Bronze.

    I voted for Kostner (probably the winner), Leonova, and Helgesson. The third might be a bit of wishful thinking on my part, but it could happen. Like other posters mentioned, it's hard to say when we don't know who is going to be on the Russian team, but I'll take it as given that Leonova will be there. Shelepen or Biryukova could probably take bronze if they are on the team. Korpi could also take the bronze but with how she skated at CoR, I'm not too sure.

    I think Leonova's a given. She's the most successful Russian senior lady of the post Crapova Sister era. While she has yet to medal at the really big comps, she still brings home medals every season.

    I'm hoping Kiira could make podium this year too but she looks not as strong as last season. This injury thing is really taking her chances:(

    I knew Biryukova was going places. :)

    I'm almost certain Kostner/Leonova will go G/S, but I don't know who will get bronze.

    Doesn't anyone think Elizaveta Tuktamishexa has a chance at winning? Ithink it will be Carolina/Elizaveta battling for G/S and Leonova will take the bronze

    Neither Tuk nor Sok are old enough for Euros this season.

    I pick Kostner for the win as long as she lands 5 triples and 2 2axels.

    Leonova vs Kostner for the gold. Korpi, the other Russians, and several others fighting for bronze.

    I hope Korobeynikova and Biryukova make Euro together with Leonova. I actually think Korobeynikova may have a decent chance at bronze given how inconsistent Elene G and Korpi are.
