    Hopefuls:

    Ladies:
    1.Sasha Cohen
    2.Alissa Czisny
    3.Caroline Zhang or Mirai Nagasu

    Men:
    1.Johnny Weir
    2.Jeremy Abbott
    3.Evan Lysacek

    Pairs:
    1.Castile/Olkowski
    2.McLaughlin/Brubaker
    3.Denny/Barrett

    Dance:
    1.Belbin/Agosto
    2.Davis/White
    3.Navarro/Bommentre

    Realities:
    Ladies:
    1.Ashley Wagner
    2.Rachel Flatt
    3.Alissa Czisny

    *If Sasha Cohen does compete I think she can finish either 1st or 2nd. I doubt she would actually show up if she didn't think she could skate well enough to at least make the Vancouver team.

    Men:
    1.Evan Lysacek
    2Johnny Weir
    3.Jeremy Abbott

    Pairs:
    1.McLaughlin/Brubaker
    2.Inoue/Baldwin
    3.Denny/Barrett

    Dance:
    1.Davis/White
    2.Belbin/Agosto
    3.Samuelson/Bates

    From what I've seen of the programs I think B&A skating their best could win at least the CD and FD but seeing how the judging has been going all season, 1st and 2nd placements could/should go either way depending on the performances.

    My hopefuls are pretty much the same as my realities!

    Ladies:
    1. Flatt
    2. Wagner
    3. Czisny

    This is what I am hoping for, too, except that I'd rather see Nagasu get 3rd.

    Men:
    1. Lysacek
    2. Abbott
    3. Weir

    But I wish Abbott would win. I don't really care so much about the others, but I believe these 3 guys belong there.

    Pairs:
    1.McLaughlin/Brubaker
    2.Denney/Barrett
    3.Inoue/Baldwin

    As long as M/B win, I will be happy.

    Dance:
    1.Belbin/Agosto
    2.Davis/White
    3.Samuelson/Bates (but right now I would rather watch N/B)

    I'm bad at predicting podiums, so instead, I'll predict Final Flights for Ladies and Men!

    Ladies:
    Alissa, Ashley, Caroline, Mirai, Rachael and Sasha
    ((Love to see Rachael, Mirai, Ashley))

    Men:
    Adam, Brandon, Evan, Jeremy, Johnny, Ryan
    ((Love to see Evan, Johnny, Jeremy))


    Top two for Dance is bound to be B/A and D/W

    Podium for Pairs: M/B, D/B and I/B

    I honestly don't care who wins the dance between Tanith and Ben and Meryl and Charlie. Both teams deserve it. May the best team win.

    Same for pairs, but my predictions are:

    McLaughlin and Brubaker
    Inoue and Baldwin
    Denney and Barrett

    Men:

    Prediction:

    Evan
    Jeremy
    Johnny

    Hope:

    Evan
    Jeremy
    Ryan B.

    Ladies

    Prediction:

    Racheal
    Ashely
    Sasha

    Hope:
    Sasha
    Mirai
    Ashley

    Realities:
    1. Evan--he will have to be carried off in an ambulance to not win.

    2/3--Johnny, Jeremy in either order.

    I wish: Johnny would skate the performance of his life and get more fame for that than his outfits.:chorus:

    Dance:
    1. Belbin and Agosto
    2. Davis and White

    I wish: The order were reversed, but I think Belbin and Agosto will be held up.:chorus:

    Pairs:
    1. Rockne and Keauna
    2. John and Rena

    I wish: Some pair really, really good with realistic medal hopes would burst onto the scene.

    Ladies:
    1. Sasha
    2. Rachael
    3. Alissa
    4. Ashley

    If Sasha doesn't show, push everyone up a notch.
    I wish: Someone with realistic medal chances internationally beats all of these underachievers.

    Barring that, I hope Sasha skates clean, Rachael speeds up a little, Alissa skates clean and Ashley stays true to herself and doesn't try to become a cookie cutter skater.
