    Well, I voted for D/W, who I think will win, and then for the bunch of old timers - P/B, K/K, F/S, C/L - who I think the judges will favor because they're familiar. That left one opening - which I think will be I/K.

    However, who I would LIKE to see in the GPF would be

    D/W
    I/K
    C/P
    B/S [maybe - if they finally get some decent material]
    and the remaining 2 I'm split between F/s, k/K and p/B , depending on how I feel about their dances.

    I'm really looking forward to the NHK Cup - i think the dance line-up there is the best of the series, even w/o S/B.

    I will look at the event lineups again before voting but I dont think Cappellini & Lanotte will make it. I just have a feeling they are on the down. I do think I/K will make it. Before seeing the assignments I am going to guess the same teams as Tak except Crone & Poirier instead of the #2 Italians.

    1. Davis & White 1-1 (Duh)
    2. Faiella & Scali 1-1
    3. Pechalat & Bourzat 2-1
    4. Crone & Poirier 1-2
    5. Ilinykh & Katsalapov 2-2
    6. Bobrova & Soloviev 3-3

    7. Cappellini & Lanote 3-3
    8. Kerr/Kerr 2-4

    Top 3 are obvious. Filling the last 3 spots is where it gets interesting.

    It looks as if most of us are in agreement in regards to the six teams who will compete at the GPF.

    With V&M out of the GP series I'm glad that the Kerr's and F&S are continuing and I&K have moved up to the senior division. I'm wondering if I&K can compete for a medal at the final. I suppose time will tell though at the moment my money is on the Kerr's and F&S joining D&W on the podium.

    I realize this wasn't a who wins the medals post. Got carried away.

    I agree with the majority here the 6 teams will be:

    Davis White
    Faiella Scali
    Pechalat Bourzat
    Kerr Kerr
    Cappellini Lanotte
    Ilinykh Katsalapov


    Dark horses : Bobrova Solovive and Crone Poirier.

    You guys are so optimistic for Ilinykh/Katsalapov. I love them and would love to see them in the final, but I don't think it will happen this year.

    Ilinykh/ Katsalapov and Bobrova/ Soloviev would have to duke it out. In test skates it seemed Bobrova/ Soloviev are better prepared and have better Federation support- but I/K have so much "IT" factor (), I think the chances are even.

    IlynikhKatsalapov will likely medal at NHK and same for BobrovaSoloviev at Cup of China so it will actually come down to who of those two teams gets the Bronze at Cup of Russia to see who will be considered Russian #1 team and who makes it to the final..

    ... I gotta change my mind. The draw is kind to Crone/ Poirier, more advantageous than to Russian teams ( especially considering withdrawals).

    I have looked and looked, and still can't see IT here. IMO this team is hugely overhyped. They still skate very juniorish to me. I've heard they are being pushed as the great Russian hope for dance gold in Soshi, but looking at I/K now vs how Virtue-Moir or Davis-White looked in 2007, they are still years behind. IMO the RSFS should be looking at them for 2018. Still being Russian, they can expect a lot of behind the scenes help, I guess.

    I/K haven't had their first international senior competition and claims that they're already being held up have begun

    I saw a poll on the Russian website that was from the other thread about who was more courageous in 2010 and I/K were third in a poll out of 3 of "who are you most looking forward to?" I just thought that was interesting because of what Tarasova was saying about them. But the international judges at junior worlds 2010 were very clear about them I/K compared to Monko/Khalavian and Pushkash/Gueriero and of course the Shibutani's and Paul/Islam-that I/K were the best out of all them and not by a little! So if the judges love them at jr worlds and that continues well then they should medal at their GP events and make the GP final and be big.

    No, its more a prediction that they will be. Word is already around that they will be getting the big push from RSFS which usually also translates into support from their satellites.
