    If GPF was based on points instead of placements...

    Just for fun, I thought I give you what the GPF placement would be if it was based on points first.

    MEN:

    Takahiko Kozuka 481.58
    Patrick Chan 466.73
    Nobunari Oda 462.61
    Daisuke Takahashi 461.86
    Tomas Verner 445.12
    Florent Amodio 443.15

    Alternates
    Adam Rippon 436.16
    Jeremy Abbott 435.40
    Brandon Mroz 431.11

    So not much change except for some of the placement for the final six.

    LADIES
    Miki Ando 346.68
    Akiko Suzuki 335.60
    Alissa Czisny 332.17
    Rachael Flatt 323.90
    Carolina Kostner 319.48
    Kiira Korpi 318.18

    Alternates
    Ksenia Marakova 315.45
    Kankano Murakami 315.09
    Mirai Nagsu 314.02

    Much more interesting! Kiira would have made the final and Ksenia would have been an alternate despite her less than great performance at COR.

    PAIRS

    Aliona SAVCHENKO / Robin SZOLKOWY 395.58
    Qing PANG / Jian TONG 366.87
    Vera BAZAROVA / Yuri LARIONOV 356.83
    Kirsten MOORE-TOWERS / Dylan MOSCOVITCH 346.40
    Wenjing SUI / Cong HAN 341.54
    Lubov ILIUSHECHKINA / Nodari MAISURADZE 333.49

    Alternates
    Caitlin YANKOWSKAS / John COUGHLIN 321.60
    Narumi TAKAHASHI / Mervin TRAN 321.13
    Caydee DENNEY / Jeremy BARRETT 318.80

    Interesting shakeup in the alternates. D/B gets on the list replacing the Canadians.

    ICE DANCE
    Davis and White 321.89
    Pechalat and Bourzat 321.31
    Crone and Poirier — 303.50
    Bobrova and Soloviev — 299.72
    Rizanova and Tkachenko — 283.93
    Weaver and Poje — 283.91

    Alternates
    Shibuanti and Shibuanti —281.74
    Chock and Zuerlein – 277.53
    Hoffmann and Zavozin — 272.91

    Wow. Rizanova and Tkachenko's strong score in TEB would have gotten them in the final. This also shows that Hoffmann and Zavozin were at the right place at the right time...

    ISU does count in the cumulative points as a tie-breaker.
    But otherwise, since the points given in different events are not very comparable (the judges are different), the placements should be a fairer solution.

    But I am surprised that the result Mrs.P has shown us is almost exactly the same as the real selection this season. Which means the judges were quite objective throughout the six different events?

    Yeah Kanako or Korpi is a difficult question. I'd rather have 8 finalists ... oh wait that still excludes Mirai so I'd say 9.

    Those points are according to an accumulation of different judgings. I find this unfair since a skater can win in different events but the scores will not be the same because of different judges.

    Yeah, I agree with you here. I think the way the GPF is determined is fine, but I like math, so hence this little fantasy post. But I think it does expose some interesting trends. (i.e. P/B and D/W looking to be the big contenders for Ice Dance, the Shibs knocking on the door for the top 5; the dominance of the Japanese men, etc.)
