    The Comeback Kid

    Which skater is likely to make a comeback this year in amateur competition? (I mean a REAL comeback... someone who will stand on a podium or two, perhaps even atop it!)

    I voted for Angela. I hope this isn't just wishful thinking. She has it all, now she just needs, as you say, to get it all together.

    About Yagudin, I hope that he takes the full recovery time necessary and does not try to rush back into competition prematurely. I would rather see a healthy Yags for years to come than to see him push too hard for another World Championship this year.

    My second choice would have been Chait and Sakhnovsky. With Bourne and Kraatz moving on, this may be the year they can seriously challenge for podium honors.

    I voted for Angela. I really like her skating and if she puts it all together, she could make the podium.

    I voted for P&T just because the pairs scene is so weak. They should be able to get away with their boring technical skating and still do well.

    I had to go with AP although Angela is first on my wish list and Yagudin is second.

    Realistically I worry about Angela's head and Yagudin's hip. :(

    Hey...

    I don't think AP should count as a "comeback". Nationals was close and she placed 4th (which is impressive), and wasn't seen until the International Figure Skating Challenge. I think she skated awesome there, but the judges gave her low marks that the audience booed at, and placed 4th. But that's just in my opinion

    She skated at Four Continents, where she placed fourth, behind Fumie Suguri, Shizuka Arakawa, and Yukari Nakano. It wasn't televised, but she didn't skate well.
