    Who will try a quad and land it?

    My predictions!

    Dai - Will try regardless of the success rate on that day and 15% chances of landing it cleanly.
    Nobu - 50% chances of trying depending on the success rate on that day and 35% chances of landing it cleanly.
    Plushy - Will try and land them.
    Lambiel - No idea.
    Joubert - Will try and land them.
    Koz - 60% chances of trying somewhat depending on the success rate on that day. But may go for it regardless. 20% chances of landing it cleanly.
    Chan - No try.
    Johnny - No try.
    Evan - 15% chances of trying it and 20% chances of landing it.

    Any reason you left out Jeremy and Tomas?

    No reasons. Just forgot.

    Jeremy - Will try and 70% chance of landing it cleanly.
    Tomas - Will try them and 95% chance of landing at least one of them cleanly.

    I think Lambiel will also very likely try one; especially if he still doesn't have his triple axel back; he needs the quad to be anywhere near the podium!

    Amodio will certainly try a quad salchow (30% chances of landing it cleanly, 60% chances of a 2 footed one)

    Regarding dai, his a couple of the recent practice reports after nationals do not sound very promising. He also did not suceed in it at any of the comps this season. I feel that he'd be better off without it if he wants to medal. But if he wants to win over plushy, he needs it. Yet, this may end up no medal for Dai.
    Nobu expresses strong wish to try the quad, but I hope that Morosov could stop him when it is neither likely nor necessary.

    I think Plushenko's guaranteed to try it and also land it, maybe more than one. Stephane will also probably try one, because he doesn't have the triple axel.. but I think any of the others depends on how things go.. a lot may try in the LP depending on how their SP went

    Lambiel can try as well 2 and land them, like he did in his LP in European Championships.

    So Plushenko seems like the only one who can land quad consistently? I heard Chan not only won't try a quad but also has problems with his axels. It seems like the technical difficulty of the men's field are almost on the same level as the ladies!

    I think both Jeremy and Evan will try the quad and I really think both will land clean ones!

    Do you ever watch men's skating?!:sheesh:

    Besides Plushenko, Brian Joubert and Tomas Verner were pretty consistant on quad landings. Jeremy's quad is getting more and more consistant. I think Lambiel's quad will be fine by the Olympics. How many ladies have ever tried 3A?!

    Thanks for letting me know there are more men who can do the quad. Sorry, I don't follow the men's event as much as the ladies. I just thought the quad should be a stable jump of the men by now, so I was kind of surprised to hear so many of the competitors not landing it consistently or not even attempting it. I was little exaggerating when I said they were almost at same level as the ladies . I meant in relative terms. Many of the top female contenders are doing the hardest jumps that are required of ladies (3-3, 3axel). (Although the technical difficulty hasn't matched 1992 Olympics where two women attempted triple axels in one competition). So naturally, I feel that the male contenders should also at least try the quad.

    Daisuke, Kozuka,Oda and Abott will try and land it.
    Maybe also Brezina and Amodio try their 4S and Fernandez his 4t.

    Who of the top ladies are doing triple-triples and triple axels?

    Mine:

    With Daisuke it's not so much about going for one (he will), but fully rotating it. 2f/ step out will prob leave Dai with a 4T< and -GOE, a fall on top of that will mean he'd done it for nothing

    Jeremy hasn't skated a clean lp with 2 3As and a quad so far this season yet iirc

    Tomas is capable of landing a beautiful 4T+3T on a good day (and bombing the rest of the program)

    Brian could do a 4+2 instead of planned 4+3 again

    Stephane hasn't come back to be in the top 10, sure he'll quad

    I have no idea how safe Evan's going to play.. I think it will depend on the starting order in the lp

    Zhenya 2 quads? No problemo. 3? He might. Will double some other jump, but it won't matter.
