    I thought Rubleva and Shefer were retiring? Maybe the lack of Domnina and Shabalin and Khokhlova and Novitski changed their minds.. because really, who knows how Khokhlova and Andreev are going to turn out

    I bet some combination of Chetlzie Lee/Min-Jung Kwak/Amanda Dobbs, but Amanda I guess still has a shot at getting a host pick for singles or pairs at SA so that would mean 3 competitions in a row if she got one of Yuna's openings. So likely Lee and Kwak, or maybe someone else.

    Yu-Na is still listed. I guess the ISU hasn't received the news.

    LOTS OF CHANGES TODAY:

    Ladies

    Min-Jung Kwak gets her 2nd evenet at Cup of China, replacing Yu-na.
    and shockingly Jenna McCorkell gets the TBA spot for Japan at NHK. Why on earth they are not using that spot for some of their countless very talented ladies is beyond me..

    Men

    Amodio finally gets the TBA spot at the Bompard event.

    Pairs
    Yankowskas & Coughlin get NHK!! which is great cause that way they have a week to rest between events and there are still two TBA spots for American teams..

    Dance
    BlancBouquet replace RublevaShefer at NHK.. Which means we'll have another french team at TEB, is there any? or will they chose from another federation?..
