    Which Discipline and Which Skaters Will Be Most Interesting for You?

    For me, it will be All the Men with a special nod to Gatchinsky because I really don't know this guy.

    I think it is Weir's favorite, Makarova, but I looking forward to see Zawadski as a Senior.

    So much replacements going on in Pairs, and I doubt we will see anything in the way of new tech

    Without V/M, I'm not expecting to swoon, but some of these couples can make an interesting competitive bid. Crone/Poiret v. The Kerrs.

    The Men's competition looks very interesting. I hadn't considered Gatchinksy but thanks for mentioning the new Russian skater. I am interested in seeing him compete at SC.
    Looking forward to Chan, Oda and Rippon in particular.

    Since I am a fan of Ladies skating I will watch but can't make any predictions.
    Hoping Fumie makes a good showing.

    Some fans are in such a rush to have the older skaters retire - but I am glad Caro did not retire and I feel the same way about Alissa and Fumie. It would be nice if they can all retire on their own terms and thank God a few cranky fans have no say in this.

    Same for Tomas and Joubert. I hope both those guys have some great skates left in them.

    For me it will the Men (GO Adam) and Ice Dance, Love the Kerrs. Hi Joe nice to see you posting again.
    Not to interested in the Ladies other than seeing how Fumie does (soft spot for her) and I
    like Zawadski very much and hope she does well.

    I will watch ladies skating and I hope that Amélie Lacoste will do well and show that she's part of the world class ladies.

    Definitely men will be the most anticipated discipline for me at this competition. Can't wait to see Patrick, Adam, and Nobu. I have really high hopes for Adam this season.

    Most interesting? Definitely Fumie .... her coach to be precise.
    I bet no one here in Japan knows who her coach is right now.
    IMO probably no coach.
    I am so curious how she will cope with her situation.

    I think she will skate to La Vie en Rose a la Piaf style.

    I'll have to think a bit more...but I know one thing I'm really excited about, and that's that David Pelletier will be joining PJ for commentary on Bold's coverage..I think he's often intelligent and insightful as a commentator. Yay !
