I love Javier so voted for him.

I couldn't put in all my votes because you left Menshov off the list. I was very impressed with him at CoR where he should have medalled.
Plushenko, of course - someone with that many championships and that much talent can never be written off - and I think maybe Gachinski will overcome his early-season problems and hopefully repeat his Euros excellence last year.
Oh crud, I totally forgot about Menshov- sorry guys!
Fernandez and Plushenko for sure. Didnt even vote for another as I have no idea beyond that.
I voted for Plushenko, Fernandez, and Joubert. The third might be wishful thinking given Joubert's current injured state, but I can hope, can't I? lol. It could be Amodio instead, or Menshov, who as some have mentioned, is not on the list. With the way Gachinski's been skating I can't see him on the podium.
Fernandez, Plushenko and Amodio !
peter liebers on the list? oh you´re so funny
More love for Joubert than last year's Euro silver medallist? Really? :/
Sorry, didn't vote for Joubert because he has not been performing well and is injured not because I think poorly of his skating. But I can be proven wrong. Voted for Plushenko too because if the screws still hold, he's still capable of beating them all. I lurvvv cutie Fernandez ... so hope he will medal too.

Anyways I'd say Fernandez is a lock, if Plush shows up, he'll likely be on the podium, and the third guy is a toss up, nearly everyone in contention (Amodio, Brezina, Gatchinski, Joubert, Menshov, etc.) is really inconsistent so it's anyone's guess as to who will skate well at that given comp.
but Kovtun is a Junior
He's not required to stay junior all season- and since he's capable of medaling at Nationals given his score, I included him- its the same as Dornbush the year he won silver and made it to Worlds. I would have put Menshov in instead of Liebers if I realized I forgot him though....
If Plushenko is healthy enough to compete, he is a good bet for a medal (not necessarily gold)
Fernandez, in spite of the few melt downs he has had, has a very good chance to medal- even win if he skates a respectable LP & a solid SP
I had a tough time choosing between Amodio and Brezina. I picked Amodio because of his recent success, but Brezina is equally capable of medalling, IMO.
