Oda I feel is the most fragile mentally of the big three, while Dai is inconsistent following his surgery (unfortunately) and he will be past his prime if he sticks around until 2014, which I doubt. But this year, Dai should be still the best if he can get his act together, like he did last year by the time Worlds come around
