    I'm assuming everyone skates his best.

    He may be able to knock out Gachinsky if Patrick keeps his balance and doesn't Fall.
    Joubert just may get a place because he's been around so long. (kind of like an award)
    Dai is the former World champion.

    In no particular order

    Dance: D&W, V&M, P&B, and if V&M don't attend, B&S
    Men's: Patrick, Dai, Brian
    Ladies: YuNa, Mao, Miki
    Pairs: K&S, S&S, V&T

    The other thread where we say what we'd like to see is more fun

    Do you really think Gachinski is at the level where he can medal at worlds?

    I sure don't. He may have the tech content, but not much else that I can see.

    I do not think Gachinsky us at the medal stage yet, but he will.

    Joesitz, if everyone skates his best, Chan has the highest base value and highest PCS. Likely highest TES.
    Chan has the most potential to place on the podium, and even win it, but he tends to be awkward on technique. I think the Worlds judges will get him on this. Base Values mean nothing to me; they vary from panel to panel, and PC scores moreso. There is more to PC than the misnomer skating skills.

    Chan's technique is awkward?
