    I think K/S main goal this year was to get back on the ice and stay healthy, I don't know if they are even worried about worlds at this point.

    I think K/S and V/T should be first and second; B/L third (if they are clean) M/B and I/M will be 4th and 5th in some order and G/E will get used to being in 6th place. It will be a great competition either way.

    I highly doubt the Russian Federation would send anyone to worlds over K/S

    They have the second highest free skate score this season and will medal at nationals and europeans, as well as the win they got at Cup of Russia. There is no way they are not sending the two time world bronze medalists.

    As far as any competition goes, anything can happen. Injury, illness, airlines loosing skates and costumes It will be a great competition if everyone is 100%.

    I think and I hope S/S,V/T,K/S are all on the Worlds podium, no matter what the order is.
    Could anyone tell me date and schedule of the Russian Nationals? Thanks!

    I hope so too but as Chinese #1 Pang & Tong will be placed on the podium as the silver or bronze medalist whether they deserve it or not. Next year they will be possily dropped as Chinese #1 in favor of Sui & Han depending how much Sui & Han improve. I believe S&H are age eligible for senior Worlds next year.

    of course I'd like to see V/T win, but think K/S will just from the level of program difficulty alone- clean or not. Hoping that V/T and I/M will round off the podium. B/L are gorgeous skaters but their program (in particular the SP) is just zzzzzzzzzz and uninspiring. M/B will probably finish 4th.

    I just saw the V/Tteam on YouTube and...WOW! I now amend my original list. These two have the goods to be #1 at Russian Nationals now.

    How wonderful to see Tatiana finally have an equally great partner.

    I'm really liking the V/T and M/B pairings. Both Tatiana and Maria look so much better with their new partners.

    Yes, I agree with you! But I do not give up my hope! If Pang/Tong continue making so many mistakes and do not impove themselves, they will lose their place. It is a matter of time.
    Good luck to V/T, K/S!

    Not only that...Pang has serious issues with body line...specifically during lifts. Her legs become wet noodles - there is absolutely no tension in her body - no style...and all things being equal, Pang does not have that Russian Pairs Skating Goddess presence that someone like Volosozhar or Savchenko has.

    I will say, P&T and K&S have the two best programs this season. As much as I like S&S, comedic programs have to be performed at the highest level to be taken half as seriously by the judges. In a one mistake against one mistake competition, they may loose in the PCS. I'm lukewarm on V&T's program choices...I think it's way too early to determine a musical style for them...but I think the Carmina Burana SP is a bit heavy for the new pairing...more like something she would have skated to with Morozov.

    I'm really liking the V/T and M/B pairings. Both Tatiana and Maria look so much better with their new partners.
    Fozzie Bear, ITA. Maria looks so much softer now...and I find all of the skaters body lines match much better in the new pairings. Win for everyone!

    Definitely K/S- they look more comfortable with their programs here. M/T too (especially Maria!). V/T look okay but not my cup of tea at the moment (their programs), but they gel pretty nicely considering their new partnership.

    Definitely. She doesn't look like she loathes her partner!

    It's so nice to have Russian teams to like again!

    I hope M&B can improve in the transitions part because they look already perfect together and I would put them first in my favorite pairs list.
