    davison is injured. pairs is wide open - quite the opportunity for some of these teams. so from the canadian teams, 3 of the top 4 are out; D/D, V/M and Joannie.

    both 2nd and 3rd places are interchangeable with maybe markova in a medal position.
    crone /priorer will win and paul/islam will come in third
    dube and davison rank canadian team will win if not medal
    chan and reynolds will win if not medal
    Don't think Crone and Poirier are going to beat Kerr and Kerr

    Ladies:
    Alissa Czisny
    Ksenia Makarova
    Cynthia Phaneuf
    Agnes Zawadski
    Fume Suguri
    Alexe Gilles
    Sara Meier

    I'm not sure what do so with Agnes. It's going to be quite a big test for her, no? She could surprise and medal, maybe even win the whole thing. But she's a bit slow and slightly sloppy so I think if skaters like Alissa and Cynthia skate their best their PCS will carry them over Agnes's likely higher difficulty content.

    Pretty unpredictable ladies field, no? Bunch of die-hard, unreliable vets and newcomers nobody knows what to expect from. I guess it's in not a strong field but there are some skaters here I always like watching and some I'm curious about.

    Men:
    Patrick Chan
    Nobunari Oda
    Adam Rippon

    ... who knows on the rest. Maybe Keven Reynold or Javier Fernandez fourth ...

    The Toronto Star is reporting that Canadians fans are all disappointed in the line up at Skate Canada. But I'm kinda looking forward to the singles especially to see Chan, Oda and Rippon. And Alissa of course.

    Funny, I don't think Agnes is neither slow nor sloppy.

    I didn't mean to sound as negative about Agnes as I came across... Sloppy's defintely too strong a word. She could use a little more finesse, that's all, and it's almost there. She's not Caroline Zhang slow by any means but I definitely think she could work on her speed, which I'm sure she is doing.

    Anyway. Her jumps are big. Her layback is nice and her ice presence is very fun. Very watchable skater.

    As I say, she could suprise and she is one of those I'm looking forward to watch this weekend and I'm curious how she'll do at a Nats. Go Agnes!

    I see Phaneuf for the gold, but then I find it quite unpredictable
    On the podium could be Makarova, Marchei (scored about 164 at Coupe de Nice), Czisny, I don't really know

    Pairs
    No idea...

    Dance
    Kerrs
    Crone/Poirier
    ...

    I am not going to make any predictions because this one is so unpredictable. I would like to see the Kerrs finally win a grand prix.

    The level of disrespect thrown at the skaters in this post is really quite startling.

    I think fairly is dissing the sytem- the ISU and the powers that be - rather than the individual skaters or teams.
    I could be wrong (not the first time )
