I'm not saying they should have watered down the field like the Russian Fed did for Plushenko, but really, why not help your guy out a bit?
    Russian Fed did what? I thought it was Chan's decision not to compete... And Tretyakov replaced Lutai only because Andrei was in bad shape and wasn't good at the local competition when Tretyakov was 2nd at Nebelhorn Trophy

    Actually it's a great start to get Takahashi back into the competitive stage. He needs to get pass the Japanese National before even have a chance of going to Olmypics. Al though I don't think he will have a problem finishing no lower than third and japan does have 3 spots in men.

    He does have great PCS score, and if he just skate clean and don't attempt quad, i don't think he will have a problem getting on the podium. Quad is this stage will be too risky, as he needs to be fully recover before thinking about it.

    I think he's fully recovered at this point, he just missed some practice time due to the injury. I also think he doesn't need quads with this (NHK) field. He could simply max out what he already has. Quads can wait till GPF.

    No, I think you mean the Tiger-(Woods-)puppy.
