Who says Plushenko is out? I don't think Russia has named its team yet has they?

With Patrick Chan, Yuzuru Hanyu and Daisuke Takahashi, I don't see the need to talk about Lysacek or Plushenko as locks for Gold medal...
I don' t even think most people, outside of delusional fans, even thought Evan was going to actually skate this season, let alone win anything.
Plushy, is well Plushy. I'm sure he believes he can still do so many things, but the rest of us have eyes.

Was Lysacek ever in???
If Kovtun doesnt pull up substantially at Europeans you probably will see Plushenko at the Games. It wont be competing for a gold medal though (well maybe in the Team event).
I think even Plushy actually realizes he would not be a threat for gold, and in fact just wants to compete at his 4th Olympics. With an extraordinary amount of luck maybe come in 3rd.
Is there any chance Voronov could be considered for the lone Russian entry if he places top Russian man at Europeans. What an out of nowhere shock that would be, and what irony after he was screwed out of the 2010 team.
How were Lysacek and Plushy more of a factor than Patrick Chan.
Would love to see Voronov medal at Euros, just to f*ck with the Russian fed a little more. Of course, that would just mean that Plushenko's "secret test skate" would go remarkably better than anything seen at Euros and he would be sent.
