    Russell and Ten. It won't let me vote because I'm not a premium member or w/e.

    I cheated, I couldn't make up my mind and voted for three : Ten, Russell and Rogozine.

    I've got the same problem. But non-premium are allowed to vote on polls.

    I voted for Andrei Rogozine and Eladj Baldé - assuming that Eladj really is over his injury and just needs more training time to get back to previous form.

    I wish I could vote for Ian Martinez, because I love his skating, but I'm not sure he has the mental toughness necessary in what will probably be a very tight competition for spots four and five.

    I'm pretty excited for men's skating this year because some of the 'new blood' looks promising. As geoskate said about Eladj (although not new) I hope that he gets over the injury and makes a strong comeback, and Andrei looks like he has the goods to be a great skater. Joey seems to developing verrrrrrrrry slowly, but at least he seems to be on the right path. On the flip side, I hope that Jeremy Ten doesn't implode like he did last season.

    For sentimental issues I don't mind Ian or Marc Andre (go old dudes!). The only one I don't really remember is Samuel Morais, although from the footage I saw I don't think that he's at the same level as the others on the list. Otherwise, I'm totally okay with anyone on the list to make the top 5.

    I don't think that Sawyer is a lock as Chan and Reynolds are, so I'd say that whoever lands jumps (especially the 3A) they'll have a great chance at the three remaining spots.

    How many spots for worlds do we have for next year's worlds?

    I cannot vote!

    Anyway, I would say Rogozine and either Russell or Ten. I haven't seen Jeremy yet this year, but last year's season was very poor. He is a better skater than Joey Russell, but not if he falls apart.

    Yea, there's something strange happening with this poll. I was able to vote, but then it took me into another thread entirely directly after I voted. hmmm

    Rogozine

    I couldn't vote as well, but he skated great at Thornhill on the weekend. Two 3A's in the long with back spread eagle as take off. I would like to see him change the second one into a different difficult entry but they were impressive. He is on fire! Let's see if he can maintain this level until January

    Chan finished second, Reynolds eleventh, so that's three spots, isn't it?
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    I would say Jeremy Ten if the vote worked for me (which it didn't).

    Jeremy Ten had a jammed big toe on his picking foot all last season. It developed when he was working on a quad. That's why he skated so poorly throughout the season. He is now 100% fully healed and pain free, and he has all of his triples back, although they're not quite as consistent as he would like them to be.

    So I picked Jeremy Ten and the amazing Andrei Rogozine.

    Dragonlady, it's good to know what happened to Jeremy Ten. I am kinda excited to see that it'll be very competitive for the third spot! Anyone know how Reynolds is progressing? Or Joey Russell?

    Yeah - but aren't the new rules now that 2 qualify and the 3rd has to compete to qualify?

    Rogozine caught my eye at Nationals in London. A lot of potential there. He reminded me a bit of a very young Ilia Kulik, especially with that spread eagle entry into the 3A.

    I know that Jeremy never publically made excuses for his poor showing last year even though all of his pick jumps just went to hell in a handbasket and he spent the whole season in pain. Not quite what he had hoped for in an Olympic year.

    Don't know about Reynolds, but Joey Russell looked about the same as past years - under-rotated and fell on his 3A attempts in both the SP and the LP. I really haven't seen much progress in his skating at all since he won Junior Men's in 2006.

    Don't know. I'm pretty sure I read/heard that Canada, US, and Japan each have 3 spots in the men's event.
