    3 Skaters for Next Season - CANADA and USA

    Reynolds 10 Chan 2

    Rippon 7 Abbot 6

    IMO Reynolds did every trick in the book and was underscored!

    You can add Japan to the list as well. Japan was saved by Takahashi after Oda melt down and Kozuka bombed his LP.

    The JFed is really lucky that Dai chose to fight through his injury and come back. I was not expecting Taka and Oda to both implode so dramatically.

    I think too, it's Reynolds 10 and Chan 3

    Forgive me for not listing Japan. I don't think there was any previous concern. Takahashi and Oda but who knew before Oda would melt in the SP no less. Dai did it all himself although kozuka would have helped.

    Any predictions who will make the teams next year? It's obvious with Japan's team (Daisuke, Nobu, Taka) but the US and Canadian teams might not be as clear. Is Evan and Johnny coming back next season? Who would be Canada's #3? I doubt Sawyer is staying and Chipeur might be done.

    I think the 3rd Canadian next year will be Jeremy Ten. I would hazard a guess that two of the three US skaters will be Adam and Jeremy.

    Sorry, it's actually Chan: 2 and Reynolds: 11 = 2+ 11 = 13 = 3 spots

    Yes, Russia will have only one spot. If Plushenko stays on, the young talents will be deprived the sole opportunity to grow and learn and that could have pretty negative long-term effect on Russian men skating given that Plushenko is already 28 and can't stay on that much longer.

    Abbot and Rippon should be proud too, wish there was a skater like Rippon coming in Canada, not sure if anyone can come close to Chan in the next few years.

    Though iam so happy for Canada and USA and Japan, i feel sorry Russia has lost its strength in men's skating.I adored the days of Yagudin and Plushenko.

    If Kevin Reynolds can have a long overdue coach change and work with people who can actually groom him into a more complete skater, with his Quads, he could be a force. But first, I think he needs to leave Joanne MacLeod because she is not maximizing his potential.

    Kevin seems to be developing a real personality on the ice; Shae-Lynn did a good job choreographing him, it would be good to see her working with him again. From what I've seen, he is taking steps outside of Joanne McLeod in terms of training, and he is working on his weaknesses. I could suggest a better haircut - ? But otherwise, he seems to be becoming a more real prospect as a good all-round skater.
