Love the Finnish Ladies. Great technicians with very classic skating.
Well, it's gonna be a big year for them. Expect them to dominate European's and attempt to get Finland 3 spots for Olympics.
All 4 Ladies from the Finnish team are equally talented with certain strengths and weakness (They sure do have the most exciting nationals behind US and Japan!) But if one can emerge consistently strong technically this season, they might have an outside shot at the GPF. If not, I expect plenty of Top 5 finish from these ladies on the GP Series.
Right now, Lepisto is my favorite. Whether she has master the Lutz and Flip over this summer is key, she has already proven how high in the standings she can rank without those jumps. That proves the great quality and edging from her skating.
Korpi has her ups and downs, but perhaps she has mature from this recent WC, and can get her consistency back together.
And like I said about Good Ole Poykio, Skate America is just a matter of whose been preparing the best over the summer and can come the cleanest that night, so Poykio has an outside shot to play spoiler there.
Finlandia Trophy is no doubt the best early season event, so we'll get a better picture there.
