    When Lambiel announced he was fit to skate and there was a buzz that this would mean that he will get invites for the GP, it was stated that Lambiel will not accept any offer from Russia since he didn't want to face Plushenko so early in the season.

    Ari-Pekka Nurmenkari will replace Chan.

    I didn't hear that about Stéphane saying he did not want to face Plush so early. Where did you read that? I want to read it for myself to see how it was phrased- I mean is he really that scared of Plushenko?

    I just read the article at FSU and I got a different impression. The article said that Stephane doesn't want to attend a GP event that would require him to travel overseas, because it would disrupt his training too much (and he still has a lot to work on). Then it added "since an early confrontation with the Olympic rival Plushenko was out of the question...", but I got a feeling that was a result of not being able to compete at CoR, not the reason.
