RUSSIA MEN ISU SB thus far 10 222.54 Artur GACHINSKI RUS ISU GP Cup of China 2011 05.11.2011 23 197.19 Sergei VORONOV RUS ISU GP Rostelecom Cup 2011 26.11.2011 24 197.09 Artur DMITRIEV RUS ISU JGP Baltic Cup 2011 17.09.2011 26 195.88 Konstantin MENSHOV RUS ISU GP NHK Trophy 2011 13.11.2011 28 193.76 Maxim KOVTUN RUS ISU Junior Grand Prix Final 2011/12 10.12.2011 Bush, Dmitriev, and Gorshkov are aging out of juniors after this season. So far, only Gachinski has a ranking and SB high enough to guarantee GP for next season. Plushenko will likely do well enough if he does Euros or Worlds also. Kovtun can stay in junior. I imagine Voronov, Menshov, and Dmitriev have done well enough to get a spot or at least end up very high on the alternate list. We'll see if Bush and Gorshkov get a chance to improve their SB later in the season. Bush actually only did 3 senior B events so no GP or JGP spots = no SB yet. Not sure what happened there? Whichever of Bariev, Kovalev, Grigoriev, and Borodulin continue skating, they could get some B spots. Maybe COR for Bariev or Grigoriev if they're lucky?

Takahashi, Hanyu, Kozuka, and Oda have done well enough to secure GP for next season. Murakami should be high on the alternate list if not getting a spot outright, same for Machida. The other guys (Tanaka, Hino, Uno, and Kihara) can all stay junior at least for another season. The other top 12 finishers from Nationals are Nakamura and Tsuboi, who may get B assignments.

Risa Shoji could do either but with 2 JGP seasons behind her may go up to senior GP. I think Imai should get at least 1 GP spot too. Miyahara and Sato will very likely do JGP along with Haruna Suzuki and Kako Tomotaki. Kana Muramoto and Satsuki Muramoto could get B spots- they are too old for JGP. Nishino has thousands of years on JGP (actually 5) but isn't high enough on the lists for a GP spot- so maybe she will get NHK or if not, a final year on JGP.
