    Mixed feelings about Sasha's draw. Normally I love a late start position, but she will be skating right after Carolina, which could get tricky if Carolina skates lights out. But I think it matters a lot less with COP anyway.

    Thank you for the starting order. This the kind of information that drew me to GS.

    Interesting placement for Sasha.... might hurt her with nerves, but if she skates clean it could help her scores.

    Most of Sasha's best performances have come in the Short Program. I think she will be okay. I hope she has prepared herself for everything. GO Sasha!

    Will we get a complete showing by NBC? Maybe only the Hockey compeitition is left and that is on Sunday.

    As for Sasha, she has been doing well in both programs to music she has used many times before. She should be in her comfort zone with muscle memory, and skate two excellent programs. JMO

    Welcome to Golden Skate, Sasha_4. I don't think Sasha will have any problems with the draw. At this stage of her career, she's gone first, she's gone last, she's been in just about every situation. I don't think her nerves will trouble her this time around.

    Kimmie, on the other hand, has a great draw for a first-timer. Strut your stuff, then sit in the stands and enjoy the show!

    I imagine we'll get fairly complete showings from both CBC and NBC seeing as both countries have skaters in the first group, and then the top skaters are at the end.

    None of the top skaters seem to stand out to me as having extremely bad draws. I hope everybody skates their best, and we see clean programs, and lots of them, unlike what happened with the men.

    The mens comp shows that start order here has no effect what so ever and I believe it shouldn't but the judges have got to stop giving marks away like candy to the top russians.

    My guess is that we will see about 15 women on NBC. Roughly half of them.

    I think that by the time they reach such a high level most athletes are used to the draw and skating first, middle of the pack, or last.

    The SP has usually been quite strong for Sasha. I expect to see a great skate from all the Ladies!

    Thanks!!

    Thanks Nymkfan51 for the list. Here's hoping Sasha does well. She deserves a victory. Here's hoping the Fumie, Shiz, and Irina do well also. They have all worked very hard.

    How do you think the results will pan out if we have say, the top 10-12 ladies skate clean? Like in SLC.
