    I love useless lists.

    Men
    1. Evgeni Plushenko
    2. Takahiko Kozuka
    3. Johnny Wier
    4. Brandon Mroz
    5. Kevin van der Perren

    It'd be cool if Sawyer was able to get a top five placement, but I doubt that's happening. Plushenko is less interesting to me, admittedly, then seeing where the rest settle out behind him.

    Ladies
    1. Miki Ando
    2. Mao Asada
    3. Alena Leonova
    4. Alissa Czisny
    5. Julia Sebestyn

    Yeah, this seems right. Maybe Wagner over Sebestyn.

    Pairs
    1. Kavaguti/Smirnov
    2. Pang/Tong
    3. McLaughlin/Brubaker
    4. Bazarova/Larionov
    5. Brodeur/Mattatall

    Dance
    1. Davis/White
    2. Capellini/Lanotte
    3. Crone/Poirier
    4. Copely/Stagniunas
    5. Rubleva/Sheffer

    Wow, everyone's rooting Kavaguti & Smirnov over Pang & Tong. Well I agree this is the choice of my heart as well, but I have a hunch that it may be the other way around.
    For ladies, I just hope Mao comes back strong and Leonova medals. She's fresh, exciting, fun and not a swan! Way to go to Leonova!
    I think men's is a minefield, dont think Plush will dominate as clearly as assumed.. But we'll see..

    1 Evgeni PLUSHENKO

    2 Takahiko KOZUKA

    3 Brandon MROZ


    Ladies

    1 Mao ASADA

    2 Miki ANDO

    3 Alena LEONOVA

    I stole this list from skatersmum and only substituted in Mroz for Weir. Maybe Weir will come in third if he was buoyed and inspired by his buddy YuNa this past weekend, but he was on and off last I remember. I'd be happy to be wrong about my Men's predictions though.
