    Henie just wasn't much of an early-season skater. :barrel

    No. But considering that his last year of competing was the first year of the Champions Series -- and he didn't have any fall competition assignments that year -- it's not surprising.

    Had to look it up. No he didn't. More surprising since he won more medals and competed on the series for three seasons. In 1997-98 he was first alternate.

    If the series had existed in 1994-5 he would have made it. Maybe 1993-94 depending which two of his three events counted.

    Uhh...because he's 19? And still has a long career ahead of him to change it?

    He's not exactly been given the greatest two assignments to change things this year, either...the guaranteed Chan-win at Skate Canada and then the pretty tough field at CoR wouldn't exactly have been my first picks for him.

    If we consider skaters who were World medalist and competed during GP series, then Surya Bonaly never made the GPF.

    Like Chan will come in fifth place at his other events?? :lol:

    P.S. Could we agree to use surnames in place of he/she? When you use the pronoun and you're quoting someone who used a pronoun, we have to search through your old posts to figure out who you are talking about. (This is Ross Miner being discussed, right?)
