It's not holding the skaters back when they just don't have the invites. But I agree that Daleman should get the Skate Canada TBA, especially without a triple loop. Combining that with 1 or 2 Senior B events will still get her on track re ranking points and there is always the possibility of picking up another GP (didn't happen for Osmond last year but I think Daleman is higher up on the alternate list). I'd still like to see Mallet get a Senior B. Hopefully both spots at Salt Lake City are used this year.
In terms of JGP, I would also add novice champ Zoe Gong to the list I made above - she had a strong start at Skate Detroit with over 46 points in the SP.
