This may be too early, but...
Gold: Plushenko, most likely
Silver: Lambiel (though if he skates well, I'd put him ahead of Plushy)
Bronze: prolly a toss-up between Joubert, Klimkin, and Lindemann
Gold: Slutskaya, hands down
Bronze: no idea, prolly either Liashenko or Pöykiö (she always seems to come out of nowhere and end up in the final 6)
Bronze: C/S, most likely, but it's really a fight between them , D/S, Del/Scho, and Dom/Shab (too many European dance teams w/ D/S names!!! lol )

I generally agree with those predictions I think, though I don't think Lambiel can beat Plushy. I think Klimkin will get third. And I would put S/S ahead of P/T
what didn't kill me-made me stronger!
Yea, Ira, Plusenko and Lambiel...Navka-Kostomarov, Grusina-Goncarov...Totmianina-Marinin,Petrova-Tihonov...yes,and what about Obertas-Slavnov???
And everybody's forgeting one so important thing: CAROLINA KOSTNER!!!!! She can win a medal,too!!! If she does that 3-3-3 combination,with all that speed and beautiful choreography! Go,go,Caro!
Joubert? He has no chance for Gold!
Still I think that best skaters are:
Ira, Sokolova, Liashenko, Poykio, Costner, Sebestyen
Plusenko, Lambiel, Van Der Perren, Klimkin, Lindemann
Totmianina/Marinin, Obertas/Slavnov,Petrova/Tihonov,Zagorska/Siudek and German couple
Navka/Kostomarov,Grusina/Goncarov and a French couple
Why did Kostner miss the Europeans last season? I hope to see her perform well this year, because she was awful in her GP assignments. With all the pressure on her as torch-bearer at the Olympics, a good performance here is crucial!
My predictions are not radically different:
P/T (maybe/hopefully upset by O/S but I'm not counting on it)
