    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.

    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.

    Thing is, a lot of people would have said that after last season's GPs, too. Then he came good at Nationals and Euros.

    Yes but he was lucky everyone else came bad at Europeans. Not only does he need to pull a rabbit out of the hat again, but hope everyone else screws up again. If it is a well skated event by all he still wouldnt medal.

    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.

    It's just cause Joubert is absurdly loved in Europe and will be rewarded with big scores if he skates even half decently. I think Arthur could medal too but he's got a bit of an uphill battle to fight, still though, everything he needs to get on the podium is all there.

    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.

    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.
