Four Continents, Junior World, Senior World and Senior National Teams
I figured we could have a place to post the team rosters once they were announced.
I know that we have two spots for ladies and pairs and three spots for men and dance to the senior worlds, but I'm unsure as to how many skaters we're allowed for junior worlds and four continents.
4 continents is always 3 entries for all events. That applies to all countries.
In JW we have 2 spots in all disciplines.
I guess that we can pretty safely assume that SC will follow the ranking order from nationals when making the teams, so...
Ladies: Cynthia Phaneuf, Myriane Samson, Amelie Lacoste
Pairs: Moore-Towers/Moscovitch, Duhamel/Radford, Lawrence/Swiegers
Ladies: Cynthia Phaneuf, Myriane Samson
Pairs: Moore-Towers/Moscovitch, Duhamel/Radford

Will all the people going to worlds necessarily want to attend 4CC though? Someone might bypass it, although I can actually see all of those listed attending 4CC. I think all the pairs will go due to their relative inexperience, and Cynthia could probably benefit from going too.
I think Cynthia's skipping, though I think she should go. Actually, I think Canada should send Samson, LaCoste and DeSanctis to 4CC (experience, international results) and use the 4CC has a quasi-skate off and with Nationals decide the second spot.
I guess it is pretty likely that some of the medallists will skip 4CC. It's not like we haven't seen that before. I actually think it will be great for some of the skaters who didn't quite get to the podium to get the experience of a major international event.

I think Samson and Lacoste could do a skate-off, but DeSanctis I wouldn't really consider ready to go to Worlds yet.

Rogozine is likely, but I'd love to see Liam Firus go to JW too. He really imrpessed me.
Canada only has one spot at junior worlds for ladies. So it should be Najarro's no question.
Grenier really has no international reputation at all, so I wouldn't be surprised if Charbonneau was sent. She's been doing better in the FS recently, she just really needs to make sure not to bomb the SP like she has been most of this season...
