    Carriere has no part of the U.S mens figure skating future at this point. It would make much more sense to give Brown or Farris the spot.

    Farris already has two GP assignments. Carriere is just as deserving as Brown for a GP assignment. His long term future in the sport is irrelevant.

    It isnt irrelevant to the USFSA. Giving a guy who is about the 10th best skater in the country, who is probably in his final season, and who has no hope of even making the Olympic or World teams this year or long term prospects for the U.S serves them as no purpose. From their perspective what sense does giving him Skate America make.

    Personally, I hope he DOES come back, and shuts all of you up, or least gives you something worth crying about.
    Evan may be back on the ice doing all he can to get ready, but Evan's coach is the one making statements about how significant his injuries are and how he is slowly getting back into competitive condition.

    The original poster perhaps should have chosen the word "if" instead of "when" in the thread title, but in no way seemed to be indicating ill will to Evan in the original post. Given the situation, I think most posters would like for Evan to be healthy enough to skate, but from what is being reported having doubts and speculation is certainly not unwarranted either.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    All of this is currently hearsay. Thanks to the Admin who moved this to the Trash Can, where it belongs.

    To be honest, I don't expect him to compete at SA either, but all of this is speculation, not proven truth. Gossip belongs here, not in the Great Skate Debate.

    I am legitmately only going to consider buying a ticket if Jason Brown competes.

    Jason would be a wonderful choice. His programs are entertaining and the choreography is brilliant. His entries into his jumps are difficult and unique. America needs to see where the future of mens US figure skating lies. Not to mention what a nice young man he is and a role model for younger skaters.

    If Lysacek withdraws, I would love to see Jason Brown. He was fabulous at Neblehorn!
    His programs ooze charisma and a sense of true fun. And a Y spiral into a tano lutz? Come on! Wow.

    Yeah, probably. The poster was just playing the odds...like a cool Vegas skating slot machine..and guess what?? They WON!! Seriously-Ev has been beseiged by injury, and has withdrawn from the last 2 Skate America's..perhaps someone betting on the Trifecta wasn't mean, it was just plain honest. I wasn't a BIT surprised to see that he'd withdrawn!! Would loved to have seen him there, but a torn Labrum will NOT heal with intense training.

    Anyway, I'm going to Skate America to see ARTUR GACHINSKI!!!!
