    My Take on Ladies ....

    Guaranteed 2 Spots

    Nagasu & Flat (4) : Both Top 12 at worlds, according to the rules they'll get 2 events.

    For Sure 2 Spots

    Czisny, Wagner & Zhang (6) : All three girls will be among the top 24 SB scores and Top 24 world standings , plus they all have high enough profiles in the international scene, they'll get 2 events no matter what too.

    Gao & Zawadski (4) : If both decide to move up to Senior they will have no problem with getting the second assignemnt (they already have one thanks to JGP and Jr. Worlds), all the top juniors from the last season always get two events in the next Grand Prix and even the not so top juniors (think Hecken and Helgesson this year).


    More than Likely 2 Spots :

    Dobbs (2) : She'll be among the Top 24 scores and her 4th place at Four Continents wont be ignored. SHe's the new Katrina Hacker, she'll get two.


    Likely only 1 Spot, but you never know :

    With all of the above we're left with only 2 slots available. One will probably go to Gilles thanks to her decent enough results and the last one should be the 3rd Skate America girl (Musademba, Maxwell or Gilles again) after the monitoring of summer competitions.

    Nice analysis. I hope that the USFSA doesn't assign any of Musademba, Maxwell or Gilles before seeing several solid summer comp results from any of them -- they've each had rather weak outings this year. Is Meissner in the mix for one GP event if she does well during the summer? I'd take her over the other three in a heartbeat.

    Kimmie is ranked 33 in the world. No season best this year

    I'm curious about how the Shibutanis are likely to score in international senior competitions given how high their junior scores have been. I'm still trying to picture them doing better than Samuelson & Bates -- but aren't junior scores generally lower because there are fewer elements and shorter program times?

    Kimmie is only going to have around 267 world standings points when the 07/08 season results are dropped, so she will not have the ranking or SB scores to be "invited" to any of the GPs, she could only be assigned to SA by the USFSA (host pick).

    No. Only the Top 75 from the Season best list are eligible to be invited. Since Kimmie didnt compete this year and her world standing will drop dramatically next season once the 2007-2008 points are removed (probably below 80th) her only chance of getting a GP event is Skate America. However, I'm not sure if that stupid rule about previosly seeded skaters that allowd S/Z and Sasha to get 2 events will be allowed this season, if it continues she might get a chance but that rule was Probably only an olympic year thing.

    That being said, if Kimmie decides to give it another chance, Im positive USFS will not hesitate in inviting her over any of the 2nd tier ladies, just like they did with Emily Hughes as soon as the 3rd spot for SA became available.

    ...again, a lot of ^ depends on whether veterans like Lysacek/Weir/Bradley come back next season. I think Messing, Farris and Brown will be guaranteed JGP spots.
    I think Armin will likely get 2 (though it's not guaranteed). He got 2 this year and did okay. Grant didn't medal at jw or jgpf so what he and Messing get depends on Lysacek/Weir/Bradley.

    I don't think Agnes Z will do gps, and I think Gilles, like Armin, did well enough in gps to likely get at least one if not 2 gps.

    Grant Hochstein has better chances of getting a 2nd event (and maybe even first) before Armin gets it IMO. Armin got 2 this year thanks to his very good run at junior the previous year but this season he did poorly at both GP events he got (9th and 11th which means he didnt even gain any WS points from them) and completely bombed at Junior Worlds. OTOH Grant is the next ranked american guy after all the big names, made the JGP Final and finish a very good 5th place at Jr. Worlds.

    Anyone who retires or breaks up before the last Team Envelope check arrives is not eligible for the final check. I suspect that we'll start hearing about more retirements and break ups that have already occurred once those checks are cashed.

    Skaters that withdraw from Nationals due to injury (Maxwell, Musademba, Katz/Lynch) or don't finish Nationals (Carriere) usually have to monitor well in the summer in order to be considered for any international assignments. Neither of the above skaters are automatically eligible to be invited to a Grand Prix besides Skate America because they are not in the top 24 ISU World Standings or Season Best scores lists. Ditto for Bebe Liang, although she did finish a respectable 7th at Nationals (qualifying her for the C-1 funding envelope), and so I assume she at least will be considered for a Senior B if she plans to continue competing next season.

    BTW, here's the link to a short clip from Angela Maxwell's exhibition number this past Saturday in NYC (includes her trademark backflip) that was posted today in the "One Step Closer Benefit" thread in GSD:

    That's not true for Maxwell, Musademba and Carriere who ARE eligible to get invitations from the other federation's events. Only the top 24 Season Best are guaranteed of an event, but anyone in the Top 75 (like the three above mentioned) is eligible to get an invitation after all the guaranteed and host slots are filled. In ladies, the fields is crowded as usual so I dont expect Angela or Musademba to get any, but in Men's with all the retirements is gonna be a weak US field so Carriere (37th in SB list) will probably get at least one event.

    Sorry I wasn't clearer -- I mean all but Katz/Lynch are in the top 75 SB scores list so, yes, technically they are eligible to be invited to a GP but it's hard to predict if being American will hurt their chances because of all the Americans (and non-Americans) ahead of them on the GP invite list.

    I'm not so sure....with Emily, there really were hardly any other options with any kind of standing for USFS to choose- next most likely might have been Amanda Dobbs who I think finished something like 8th as a Junior at Nats the previous season (obviously she hadn't yet skated at 2010 Nationals at the time). Joelle Forte might have been considered had she stayed with the US.

    With Kimmie, she hasn't competed at Nationals since 2008 whereas Musademba and Maxwell have been doing fairly well since then, making the JGPF several times and showing lots of promise. At this point, I'd like to see whichever of those 3 who does best over the summer get Skate America...hopefully there will be room for 2 of them or maybe even all 3 but who knows. With Zhang, Czisny, Nagasu, Flatt, Wagner, Gao, Dobbs, Gilles, possibly Zawadzki, Cohen, and Liang to consider (did I forget anyone?)......its gonna be tough! Man I hope to see a new face or two though. I hope a few of our journeywomen take the season off so there's room for everyone!
