    Had I not watched Hanyu's skating today, I would probably not have picked him for this podium. He still may not make it, but I hope he does. He is an exciting young skater.

    I've read it's a back injury, but don't know if that's true, or, if true, how serious it is.

    Verner just can't catch a break.

    Wow, for a "B"international, the competition is pretty stiff. Hard to call, but I'd guess Joubert will be on the stand in some position. Hanyu looks pretty amazing as well.

    Not sure how quickly or slowly Brezina ramps up for the season, but if he's an early starter, then he should also be a threat.

    And really just about any of those remaining on the list could step up - Fernandez, Aaron, Carriere, Menshov, Ten. May as well throw a dart, LOL.

    I think Hanyu will win comfortably. The Japanese are very strong. Machida will be in the mix too for sure
    I just want to see Javi, with his new coach and programs and wish him all the best for the coming season...Vamos!

    In another thread, oubik said that he's training jumps again, so I suppose he will be fine. Just nebelhorn came a little too soon.

    Now with Joubert out too. I think Hanyu, Machida, and Brezina are gonna be on the podium.

    I think Fernandez will medal. He did two quads in the LP at Worlds and is more consistent than Menshov.

    I originally voted for Hanyu, Joubert, Brezina. I did not vote for Machida even though he won last year. I think he may be in third now. Maybe with some improving consistency Menshov could do well. Brezina was going through surgery and lack of traning time last season so I think he will be first or second this year. Maybe Gold-Hanyu, Silver-Brezina, bronze - Machida. With Menshov 4 or Fernandez 4.

    I originally voted for Hanyu, Joubert, and Brezina, but since Joubert has withdrawn, that obviously isn't going to happen. I still think Hanyu and Brezina will be on the podium, but the question now is who will do the best out of Machida, Menshov, and Fernandez. Hmm. My guess is Gold - Hanyu; Silver - Brezina; Bronze - Machida; 4th - Fernandez; 5th - Menshov

    I picked Hanyu, Brezina, Menshov, in that order.
