    I don't stray too far from the CW. I predict Lepisto, Nagasu, and Makarova. I think Lepisto and Nagasu are 'hungry', so perhaps those 2 in Gold and Silver position.

    I picked Mirai Nagasu, Laura Lepisto and Ksenia Makarova. They have the talent and the experience.

    If it's fixed, there's no point in guessing.

    So, has someone listened in on Frank Carroll's phone calls? And what were the exact terms of the deal?

    I've no idea; I was just commenting on the thread title.

    I have no idea who will win, but I'm sure someone badly needs to win.

    It's hard to say, because this competition is like Inconsistent Ladies, INC.

    They could either be great or bad. I chose Nagasu, Gedevanishvili, and Makarova. I don't think Lepisto will medal in her first competition in over a year, but who knows?

    Those are my picks as well and I picked them for the same reason as well. However, the ice is always slippery.

    Why is Wagner not on your list? She is on the Nebelhorn roster. I pick:

    1. WAGNER my original choice until I realized she's a substitute (!)

    New list:

    1. LEPISTO
    2. NAGASU
    3. HECKEN
    5. MAKAROVA
    5. GEDEVANISHVILI

    I voted Lepisto, Makarova, and Nagasu. If Wagner is in, she gets my vote over Makarova.

    Isn't Ashley currently an alternate only? There's an "S" next to her name, and the key says "S" is for substitute.

    I was surprised to see Mirai skating at Nebelhorn. Where does this event rank in international events?

    It's probably the biggest Senior B, and since Mirai does have back-to-back GP events I think her team knows it's very important to compete as much as possible and get feedback on her programs since she can't go back home and back to the drawing board in between.

    I did read your post, which was wrong at the time. My post crossed with you editing your post.

    Lepisto - Markarova - Nagasu would be my standing from the first to third. I do hope Gedevanishvili do better at this season than she did at the last season.

    I think Laura will be a little rusty after more than a year off from competition. Mirai has a peaking pattern; the more she competes, the better she gets so I'm expecting a better performance from her at this event. Makarova is a solid skater so I'd expect her to do decently as well.

    Given Laura's hiatus and Mirai's prior outing at Glacier Falls, I'm going to say:

    1. Nagasu
    2. Lepisto
    3. Makarova

    As for the rest, it's a bit of a grab-bag of skaters. Elene G. can be amazing, but she is known for imploding beyond redemption. The Helgessons are relatively solid skaters as well...Kwak can be a pretty skater but a combination of nerves and injury have stunted her reputation with the judges...Sarah Hecken has been around for a while...Yretha Silete has big jumps and Shion Kokubun isn't too bad from what I saw from her on the JGP last year...

    I'd say one of the Helegessons and possibly Elene G. may get 4th and 5th...the rest is up in the air...

    can someone link a video of shion kokubun? i've never heard of her prior making this thread, and i only added her because she had the highest scores of the ladies yet.

    i think it's going to be (1) Mirai Nagasu, (2) Laura Lepisto, then (3) Ksenia Makarova.
    but Ksenia sometimes implodes easier than Mirai and this last season to make an impression on the Russian skating federation means more pressure for her.

    If she does implode the bronze will go to my personal favorites: Min Jeong Kwak, Joelle Forte, and Elene G

    but Sarah Hecken did surprise me at Worlds this year. and politics are on her side...
