Since Dai landed quad FLIP on the second day practice, he may go for it:
Here Nobu is reported to UR quad attempts so he might not jump it in his FS.
Tak seems doing well on his quad. He can land it again like Vancouver.
Reynolds reminds me of early Plushenko.. I'm going to start calling him Little Plush
jenny (presuming you haven't already added me to ignore), do you feel that that Plushenko was scored accurately in PCS according to the posted guidelines (Here and Here) If so, how? If not, where was he lacking?
I tend to agree that Evan Lysacek's PCS shot up this year, but given that Plushenko outpointed Lysacek here, it's germane to the discussion to see if you actually think that in terms of the components, you feel that reflected the skating.

I understand that the athletes tend to be risk-takers and very driven to achieve success, so that they don't mind taking these chances. But I do wish there were a way to cut down the risk of injury. I hate to admit it, but in a way, COP has achieved that effect, because it concentrates on other elements as well, spins and spirals and footwork. We were certainly shown that when Plushenko's quads were beaten by Lysacek, and Mao with three triple axels came in second after YuNa.
EDIT: But wait a minute....did I miss something? Is Plushenko not coming to the worlds? Where was I that I missed that announcement? Wow!

Would love to see Michal and Dai perform quads. Hope to see Dai's quad flip!
I'm hoping that Kevin Reynolds is able to land all his jumps(quads especially cleanly) in both programs and can move into the top 10. I'm really impressed with the improvement in the rest of his skating this year. Granted, he's got a ways to go but the improvement shows that he's serious about moving up and that he is working very hard to make the move to being a contender. I'm thinking there's a lot of potential in this kid.
