    haribobo, there were 2 rumored new teams mentioned in the U.S. Ice Dance splits thread and you've mixed up one of them.

    Her ISU World Standings ranking will likely drop below top 24 after the 2009-10 points are purged and her 2010-11 points are reduced to 70%. She didn't earn any ranking points this season. She's currently #38 on the SB list.

    Where can one see a SB list?

    Since Pluschenko competed in an ISU event last season, I don't think that he could use the comeback skater rule. However, he should be ranked high on the season best list and he will almost definitely get a host pick for COR.

    Czisny, Zhang, Nagasu, and Gold definitely would qualify for 2 GPs.

    Probably but its not a guarantee. It's also worth keeping in mind that of last season's guaranteed skaters, Rochette, Yuna Kim, Ando, Lepisto, and Shelepen did not compete on the senior GP, freeing up spots for other skaters to get second assignments who otherwise only would get one. I don't expect quite so many dropouts from this year's guaranteed skaters.

    I think last year US ladies got a total of 14 spots. So are you indicating we would likely get less this year? With all the depth, we could actually use more than 14.

    It doesn't matter how many GP spots the U.S. received last year -- 14 spots for ladies, 14 initially for men (13 after Lysacek's TEB spot was reassigned), 8 for pairs, 11 for dance -- it will depend on which skaters/teams (not just U.S.) are eligible based on the 2012-13 GP selection criteria. At this point in time, it looks like fewer U.S. ladies and men are guaranteed GP selection (based on this season's criteria), but we will have to wait and see.

    Yes but the scores at last year's JW for the medalists were very low, about 20 points lower than the scores for the medalists this year, so maybe Majarov was not on the top 24 SB list and that is why he only got 1 assignment? He also didn't go to the JGPF last season, so he was probably gauranteed 1 event just based on his JW bronze. If Farris and Brown move up, they have JGPF medals, JW medals, and scores in the top 24 SB all qualifying them for 1 GP event, meaning the chances are good that each could get a 2nd. Armin might not be getting any GP assignments and the same is true for Mroz b/c they didn't make the top 24 SB list or top 24 WR list, Ricky will likely only get 1 because he's just 23 on the WR list, and doesn't even make the cut for the SB list.

    Last year: Abbott, Rippon, Miner, Dornbush, Mahbanoozdeh, and Mroz all got 2 GPs each, and Razzano was given the host pick at NHK.

    This season I assume: Abbott, Miner, Farris, Brown, Rippon, will get 2 GPs each. Dornbush will get 1 or 2, Mahbanoozadeh will maybe get 1. Host spot is open and could go to anyone.

    Probably, but the only US lady who is gauranteed 2 events is Ashley. The rest weren't at worlds/didn't finish high enough at worlds to gain thee 2 spots. There is a chance all the ladies you mentioned would get just one spot.

    The ISU World Standings rankings list will be purged of the 2009-10 data/points at the end of this season and the skaters' 2010-11 points will be reduced to 70%. If anyone feels like doing the math now...

    I thought top 24 SB scorers pretty much get 2 spots in the GP...

    It's going to be hard for a lot of skaters to get second spot. Because of the reduced number of entries and the fact that some federations no longer have skaters with automatic entries, skaters who formerly got a spot on their own but no longer do so will all compete for host picks, if they are from Chn/Can/etc.

    I've just taken a quick look. Assuming the rules stay the same (big if), seems like the top 12 at worlds and top 24 seasons best skaters will take up 37 to 43 spots, depending on whether top skaters will do a third event (and Miyahara doing JGP). Then there are about 8 skaters who may still be in top 24 world ranking that don't have a spot and need one. Then second spots will probably go to girls like Sotnikova. Plus host picks. There won't be much left.

    I think Gao may end up needing a host pick!

    I haven't really calculated the new top 24 world ranking, and I was just adding candidates who will likely remain top 24. (So I can be wrong.)
    And if more top skaters don't do a third event, then there's a bit more leeway. And then there are withdrawals, so girls like Lam and Cesario may still get one.

    Anyway, having only 10 slots for GP sucks.

    ETA: Men

    I think there are about 44 slots taken up by men with top 12 at worlds, top 24 seasson's best or world ranking. Whether men that have one spot will get a second spot will depend on host picks and whether top men take a third slot. Last year only one man did a third event, so things look better for Rippon, Miner and Farris than the ladies ( the season's best and world ranking list also don't differ as much).

    I really feel bad for Armin. I hope he manages to get one. And I hope the USFSA doesn't use one of the host picks to yet again prop up Dornbush unless he does fabulously well at summer comps and perhaps a Senior B.

    Dornbush has 1 GP garaunteed whereas Armin has none, so I doubt that is likely to happen, unless Armin manages to get a GP anyways and they want to give Dornbush a 2nd. It's more likely they might give a SA to someone like Farris or Brown should they both move up and not manage to get 2 assignments off the bat (they should be able to, but again, space is tight), or to a skater with no assignment who does well in summer competitions (maybe Aaron, Messing, Carriere, Razzano, Mahbanoozadeh if he doesn't already get one, or Mroz if he gets it back together). I just hope if they move up, Farris and Brown get 2 assignments ahead of someone like Rippon or Dornbush, they deserve it more after last season honestly.

    Armin and SA is an interesting thing- he's already been assigned there 2 years running, so logic would dictate that its someone else's turn. But, since he *was* pewter medalist at Nationals and probably won't be getting any other GP spots, USFS might assign him for a 3rd year in a row just so he has something. Same with Razzano who went last year, finished 5th at Nationals, and isn't high enough to get any other spots. But knowing USFS, they'll assign Weir and Lysacek with someone like Abbott in hopes of selling tickets.

    I did it for the men:

    3- Hanyu 3088
    4- Brezina 2751
    5- Abbott 2679

    Thanks, sigrid!

    By my calculations:
    19 Yan CHN 1,667
    20 Dornbush USA 1,547
    21 Brown USA 1,452
    22 Machida JPN 1442
    23 Song CHN 1,408
    24 Mura JPN 1,337
    25 Farris USA 1,317

    Maybe it's time to start the annual "Grand Prix Pre-announcement Thread" in GSD for early speculation/discussion of all (not just U.S.) skaters?

    ETA: Last year the ISU World Standings were updated for the new season around May 11.

    According to a post I saw over at Golden Skate, there will be 4 U.S. ladies in the ISU World Standings top 24 after they are updated for the new season - Czisny, Wagner, Nagasu and Zawadzki; Zhang and Flatt will drop out of the top 24.

    By my calculations, before (2011-12) & after (2012-13) the update:
    Czisny 3,421 --> 2,650
    Wagner 2,223 --> 1,901
    Nagasu 2,817 --> 1,804
    Zawadzki 1,833 --> 1,553
    Zhang 2,193 --> 1,315
    Gao 1,542 --> 1,098
    Flatt 2,347 --> 1,011
    Lam 871 --> 796
    Gold 700 --> 700

    Probably but hopefully not. Razzano shouldn't get SA until he upgrades his combo from 3t-3t . I sort of don't understand his huge FS score at Nationals either, I get that Aaaron, Messing, Brown, Farris, etc all kind of bombed the FS, but I didn't see how he was so much higher than Carriere and Mahbanoozadeh who skated well and are stronger components wise (or at least should be). Anyways if Armin manages to get an assignment on his own, SA will likely go to someone else, but if he doesn't get any initial assignments, I think he is the logical pick for the host spot, granted he does well over the summer. USFS owes it to him after sending Ricky Dornbush to 4CC when he clearly wasn't in a good place with his skating and finished 9 spots below Armin at Nationals (and the 13th place was generous, that FS wasn't worth 150 when Aaron, Messing, Brown, and Farris were scoring in the 130s for similar skates).

    Again though, if Farris/Brown move up and don't get 2 spots on their own, the host pick should go to one of them, honestly, they are the best hope for the future and need to be getting exposure now because who know how long Jeremy will stick around for and if Lysacek and Weir will even come back convincingly or at all. Does anyone know what Farris and Brown's plans are re: GP vs JGP? Or how likely they are to get 2 assignments without a host pick should they move up?

    Can WTT accrue any points for anyone?
