Not really. My current projections have them earning 6 points in the pairs SP for the team event - they won't beat any team Russia or China puts on the ice in the TE, and their SP from ACI is lower than K/F's SP from the John Nicks Challenge last weekend. We haven't seen M-T/M yet but nothing from J/R this weekend indicates that M-T/M won't be Canada's #1 going into Beijing. Even if they did manage to finish ahead of both M-T/M and K/F (not out of the realm of possibility), they still have a major weakness in dance that is hard to overcome. Right now, P/G have a really strong RD that is going to put them in either 1st or 2nd; even if K/K earn the Beijing spot over Kana/Dai, they are probably looking at 8th in the RD at best. That is a deficit of 6 points right there to make up. Then you have to figure that Canada's lady will be either Schizas or Ruiter - and they're both more than likely to finish ahead of the women from China, Italy, Germany, and the 10th team that qualifies. I just don't see how Canada loses enough points across women, men and pairs to get Japan into a position where they can be considered the favorite to win bronze.Japan have to be the overwhelming favorites now to win the Bronze in the team event now that they have a quality Pairs teams to go along with their strong singles skaters.
