Sasha Cohen (If she returns)
Other- Please post your thoughts in the thread
Based on the current situation, I'll say Flatt and Zhang. A lot can change, though.
Wagner could pull it together next year. That girl sounds just as smart and driven as Flatt. I think she's just been going through some artistic growing pains this past year. And I certainly won't rule out Nagasu.
Ashley just wanted it too bad this season, especially at nationals...
Zhang, Flatt, Wagner/Czisny
After seeing her 2007 Nationals FS, I really believe Alyssa is one of the most talented skaters in the world. I realize she is somewhat of a risk, but I think if she could pull together two relatively clean programs, she'd really be in contention for a medal in 2010. I'd love to see her there.
welcome to the boards, danny - post often, post long!
Caroline,Mirai, and Alyssa assuming Sasha doesn't return.
^ it would be cool if Alyssa got to go to an Olympics...
She had a legit shot in '06 though and blew it BIG.
I too think Alissa & Flatt will be on the team. The third spot is a toss between Mirai, Ashley & Zhang.
I know there would be only two spot but I chose three anyway.
Sasha-feels like complete version of Alissa and Caroline and I'm worried about Caroline's jumps
Ashley-just love her style
Right now, I think Rachael and Caroline is the most obvious answer to this question. The poll also reflects that. My personal dream US Olympic team is Sasha and Ashley. But I think if Sasha comes back, it's still more likely to be Sasha and Rachael because unless Rachael bombs the GP and Ashley shines, it's unlikely Ashley will make the Olympic team over Rachael. If Sasha does not come back, I'll hope for Rachael and Ashley. Big underdogs to make the team (they're underdogs because the didn't have a very good 2008-2009 season) are Kimmie and Mirai.
I'd be very surprised if Alissa or Bebe or any of the JGP skaters made the Olympic team.

well I voted when this poll was brand new...
I'll put Ashley and Rachel on the team now if I could.
