    I see they named Gachinski to the Russian team instead of Menshov, even though Menshov is the National champion.

    Fumie's on the list of substitutes for women. I thought she was like 8th at Japanese Nats.

    Do those without a "D" or "S", including Kozuka who tops the Japan list, have to do the qualifying round?

    Yeah, Euros really worked in Gachinski's favour.

    Suguri was seventh, and the 5th and 6th placers are both at juniors (Nishino and Shoji).

    also ILINYKH / KATSALAPOV are in instead of RIAZANOVA / TKACHENKO! Yes! I'm so happy for them!

    Again, Europeans seems to be the deciding result. They did that alst year, sending Borodulin instead of Voronov to Vancouver when the latter flamed out at Euros. If it was politics, they wouldn't have fallen behind K/A in the FD at Nationals, imo.

    i think the reason is R/T made mistakes at Euro FD, and their interpretation was a little uninspired.

    Suguri finished 7th, but Nishino and Shoji (who finished ahead of her) went to Jr. Worlds, so she was next in line after Suzuki.

    No, you don't. They are listed in alphabetical order, that is all. The order means nothing.
