With all the discussion about Sasha's return and which two US ladies will be in Vancouver I was wondering about the US Men. Yes, it is still too early - but assuming the guys are basically healthy which three do you think will be chosen for Vancouver? Will it be the top three finishers at Nationals? Will a strong GP season help a veteran like Jeremy or Johnny if they finish 4th at Nationals?
USA may not have the next OGM winner - but it is a fairly deep team this year with a strong chance to make it onto the Olympic podium.
It is safe enough to predict Evan, Jeremy and Johnny. But what about some of the others? Is Mroz for real? Did his progress have anything to do with Jeremy switching coaches? And what about Rippon? Is he ready to challenge for a spot on Team USA?
My feeling is that Evan will be on the team. And either Jeremy or Johnny but maybe not both of them. I see a strong possibilty for the third skater to be one of the younger ones - maybe Mroz, Rippon or another young skater.
