    Both Gachinski and Plushenko? Why 2 men from the same country when there is so many interesting men in Europe?

    Chan,Kozuka,Gachinski,Worlds' podium It's a good point to attract audience ~

    if Lambiel doesn't go to Opera on Ice show on Oct.1st in Italian with Carolina Kostner,maybe they'll invite him~

    Seems that it is decided. So no Lambiel.

    Mirai is competing in back-to-back Grand Prix events, starting with Skate Canada and CoC the following week, so I can only surmise she doesn't want to burn out with the added travel/event.

    Of course, Czisny is slated to compete at Skate America only a couple of weeks after the Japan Open, so who knows?

    I just want a competition for her in the beginning of the season so she can bomb her first FS there and then rock the GPs.
    Or maybe she'll compete in any summer competition?

    Nagasu has cancelled 4 event trips to Japan in past two years. Probably IMG didn't offer to her this time. I guess Frank Caroll is determined not to send Nagasu to Japan.

    Isn't Mirai Nagasu still scheduled to do The Ice tour in Japan later this month? http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=79132

    Yes, this Carroll's determination was the cause of Mirai's stress fracture.

    It was irony. Sorry that I didn't explain that more clearly.

    What Eris meant is that Carroll stands by the boards with a cattle prod and he makes Mirai practice even if she's in enormous pain from injury.

    Oh wait, that's Tom Z!

    3 Canadians on the North American team. I am surprised.

    I thought JO used to require 2 pros in each team. Did they change the rule? Should be an easy win for JP this year.

    i think mirai's been cancelling the events for all good reasons. the event is too close to her gp assignments, she has back to back assignments, injury, and (i think) growth spurt.

    i know mirai has a big fan base in japan so i really hope she gets NHK one of these seasons, i know she wants to visit her family there.

    Well, no offer in the first place, she's not "cancelling" this year. Considering Nagasu's (first) GP in past 2-3 of years, she's not well prepared anyway. Such a vague reason is not persuasive enough to abandon the prize money of at least $10,000 and show fees. Nagasu has never visited Japan after 2008 NHK trophy. She's already lost a lot of fan bases in Japan. I can't think of any other factor than Frank Caroll.

    You're correct. It was Jeffrey Buttle, Cynthia Phaneuf and Joannie Rochette. The fourth person on the team was Adam Rippon
