There have been several posts about what some skaters will choose, most notably, D/W - I am still curious as to whether seeded skaters assignment preferences are actually binding or not. Are the federations obligated to honor these requests, or do they have some leeway beyond the use of host picks? I would think that the federation footing the bill for the event should have some say in whom they want to invite.
can't wait, tomorrow the big day
Today's the day!
Probably not til after dinner though.
What happens if D/W chose Cup Of Russia? They get first picks, right?
Strategically it makes sense. The Olympics are in Russia, if I were them I would want to have a test skate before the big showdown.
So in the first round they have the first pick? I would chose COR right from the get go.
Does anybody really think that Davis and White wouldn't want to skate in Detroit?

I think they will. I doubt USFS would want Gracie and Ashley to skate against each other early in the season. I have some guesses on who will be at SA. I'm thinking it will be either Max or Jeremy. Ashley or Gracie, D&W and Lynn and Logan or Zach and Maddie with maybe Daniel and Alex. For Pairs it maybe John and Caydee or Alexis and Chris. But those are guesses. With a ton of skaters in Detroit, most will travel from there. I know it's going to be good! And I will be there!!
I have an unconfirmed source that tells me that Aliona and Robin will be at CoR and CoC this fall.
Apparently all the skaters know already, and I know someone who knows Aliona.
I wish people here used last names. Am not on a personal name terms with most of the skates and most of the time have no idea who are u talking about.
With the olys in sochi why would Davis/white need a gp in Moscow?
Assignments are up at ISU.org
There is nothing more captivating in this world than a woman's form gracing the ice in skating boots. It's simply sensational!
This too will pass away.
