    Ten has a natural ease and artistry in his movements. Indeed if he can get his TES up, it will be great for him.

    Peter G, I really like Ten. His LP last year was gorgeous. Before his last injury he totally got the 3A. High and great in the air. He genuinely had the jump.

    I was looking for a significant step up this year with last year being his comeback year, but it's not happening. I'll give it until nationals. If he doesn't do something special at challenge or nats then I wouldn't even be surprised if he retired after this season.

    OK, my eyes just about bugged out of my head at one particular name. Here's the first 5 names ... guess which one caused me to bug eye

    If you guessed the person who is listed as #5, you would be correct. Another comeback attempt?

    Emanuel didn't skate at BC/YT Sections so I'm not sure how he could have qualified for Challenge.

    ETA: I think Emanuel's name should actually be Liam Firus as I don't see him on the list. Or, if Liam has a bye to Nationals ( I can't remember if he does ) then Jeremy Ten is still missing and he placed second at Sections.

    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    Firus has a bye (senior grand prix) as does Ten (top three from 2012 Canadians).
    Presumably Sandhu could get a bye through sectionals as there were fewer than four entered who weren't already byed (for example Mitchell Gordon who skated at sectionals but had a bye through sectionals based on his JGP assignments).

    This just occurred to me as well but you beat me to it. I did a little fishing and apparently Sandhu has been practicing. According to my source the triples are back. Not sure if that means the axel or not.

    The name that popped out for me is "Garrett Gosselin.". His Junior Men's SP in Victoria was one of the most beautiful programs I've ever seen, and I was afraid he'd quit skating.

    Same here. I thought and assumed Garrett left the sport. Loved his SP in Victoria although it had two mistakes in it. I hope he has added some jumps/consistency. Looking forward to seeing what happens here.

    Firus should skate. Needs mileage...unless his coaches feel it best he conserve funds and stay home and train, too. Not like he's going to worlds....

    IIRC, Gosselin was injured sometime in the second half of 2011, but I can't remember what the injury was. He may have even skated at a summer competition or two last year. I think he just didn't have enough time to recover in time for Challenge.

    I am also thrilled to see him back, but wonder why he didn't make the rounds this summer and fall. Hope he's healthy now!

    I am psyched to see Garrett Back. He was wonderful in Victoria. I was sitting near his Mom and had a nice little chat with her. Too bad the "first place nerves" bit him in the long. And he's from Saskatchewan!!!

    He skated at Sask Open, Octoberfest and Sask. Sectionals this season. He has been improving quite rapidly, as his scores show:
    Sask Open short 36.81; long 105.39; total 142.20
    Octoberfest short 53.72; long 103.,40; total 157.12
    Sask sectionals short 60.57; long 112.35; total 172.92

    Also the protocols from the competitions show he is landing more jumps with each competition. He still has a long way to go jump-wise to be truly competitive in senior, but it is great to see him back and starting to return to his old form.

    In juniors I'll be watching Peter O'Brien with interest. He's last season's junior silver medallist, but apparently didn't skate in any competition this season until EOS sectionals, which suggests that he was injured. I think he's still young enough to be on the JGP next season, so his skate at nationals might be very important for him despite already having a junior medal.

    He came back from injury too soon, and then, if I followed his tweets correctly, he was having some bad boot issues that were solved within the last month or two when he was fitted for new ones (and maybe from a different manufacturer.)

    It's amazing that with the lack of depth that the Canadian men has 3 spots at Worlds.

    Definitely luck plays a role here - Gachinski, Voronov, Rippon, van der Perren, and Verner all underperformed. If it's any consolation, Canada tends to lose three spots every time it has three (2011, 2009, 2007) so we'll probably lose them here.
