Russia, China, and France- when will they name the teams for Worlds?
For Russia- we know 2 of the ladies but the 3rd is still in question. For men, the entry is likely Kovtun but could be a few others also. Russia Cup final is a week away so we will know sometime after that.
China has Zijun Li and Kexin Zhang for the 2 ladies spots, but the men's spot could go to Yan Han or Nan Song.
French spot will probably go to Meite or Gilleron-Gorry, unless they decide to give Ventard something after all. If she's in good shape, I'd like to see her get a chance. Men's team is pretty clear.
Song won Nationals but now Yan beat him and medalled at 4CCs in front of international judges.

Ironically, I think the best bet for Song to make Sochi is if Yan got sent to Worlds this season and made top ten. Despite a fall, Yan was beating Song handily on PCS.
I would send Yan to worlds . He's the best bet for 2 spots in Sochi. If both championships in a short time its too much for him he should skip Jr. Worlds. He already has the title and both Jin and Zhang can keep 3 spots.
