    Chan, Sawyer, Reynolds. Ten has a shot to make the podium if Sawyer or Reynolds mess up.

    It'll be a good battle for the third spot. Sawyer & Russel have good PCS scores, Ten has a good balance between PCS & TES scores, and Rogozine is on a roll winning his two GP events and easily lands his triple axels.

    If Rogozine can improve his speed and flow across the ice, and keep up his stamina at the end of his programs, I think that he may be able to take the final spot. Also if he does well at the Junior GPF then he's going to have lots of momentum heading into nationals.

    I'm rooting for the "oldies" like Marc-Andre Craig & Ian Martinez.

    Anyone know how Eladj Balde is doing? Is he even competing this year?

    He competed at the challenge this past weekend. You can see archived video at Skatebuzz.com. The senior men closed out the competition so you are looking for the last day, section 2. First is the Senior Pairs Free, then the Men. The live stream was not geo-blocked so I imagine the archives will also be fully accessible and you no longer even have to register at Skatebuzz.

    Here is a link to the pbp of his performace http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=2975939&postcount=380

    Joey's a mess.
    I think 3rd will be between Sawyer, Ten and Rogozine. I gave it to Ten who has the axel now to beat Sawyer and slightly better PCS than Rogozine although Andrei is improving his speed and fitness a LOT.

    My sentimental choice by far is Craig. He looked extremely fit and ready at the challenge. Problem is, when you get older and you're at the end of your career, the enormity of the situation can become overwhelming if you think you have a chance in the back of your mind. I think this will be his undoing.

    Yep, Joey's a big mess. I can't believe that year after year I think he'd somehow improve technically.

    Craig is definitely my sentimental favourite as well. At the age of 28 he skates and looks like that? His jumps at the challenge were amazing and probably bigger than before, and he it did not seem like he was really gasping for air at the end of his performance. At nationals, I hope that Skate Canada doesn't try and do something to prevent him from making the podium if he skates well.

    I think it'll be Chan, Reynolds, then Sawyer, although I'm hoping it's Sawyer and then Reynolds. If Reynolds lands all the quads though, Shawn doesn't really have a chance against him.
