    Thanks. I posted it in the other GP thread as well. I was going to start a new thread but you beat me to the punch.

    IF everyone shows up, yikes for TEB. That's easily the toughest field of all of them. I mean, YuNa, Mao, Nakano, Zhang - as well as Cohen and Kostner. Sort of like a mini-worlds if one thinks about it.

    Muses:

    Meissner gets Russia and Japan. Both fields have top competitors but other than that shouldn't be too tough.

    Cohen faces the reigning World Champ at both of her GP events. If she expects to be competitive, no better way to test yourself than to face the cream of the current crop.

    I noticed Gilles and Bereswill have GP events. Guess they moved up from Juniors.

    Czisny already has two GPs so looks like she's not going to get the TBD spot at SA.

    By the way, I was surprised that Japan didn't call Mao.

    Thanks for the link, EHDTKQORL123. Can you explain more about "...that Japan didn't call Mao". What's the news?

    Well, AFAIK Japanese federation has been supporting Mao for Olympics so they always invited her to NHK, but this time they didn't even though they could..

    Oh gosh, Caroline pretty much has the toughest GP's out of all the US ladies.. That sucks... And wow, she has the same exact events as last year.

    Yeah, it's only good in the sense that she gets to play with the big girls, but it sucks for her if she wants to make it to the final. I notice that the other US ladies (Flatt, Wagner, Nagasu, and even Meissner) have much easier assignments, ones at which they are almost guaranteed placements if they skate cleanly. I can't help but feel Caroline is being thrown to the wolves...or then again, maybe the USFSA wants to send the best US lady to face the toughest competition.

    And as for Armin and Shen/Zhao...WHEEE!

    I hope and pray that NONE of the skaters hurt themselves. No injuries, everyone in top form. That's my wish.

    Exactly. And like past years, the matchups almost never turn out- there are always plenty of withdrawals each year.
