OK, maybe Mirai at her best in both programs could have medaled but is anybody willing to bet their house on that happening?
It's not a matter of having three that makes the difference but of having two that are going to skate well enough to qualify.
Based on the season Jeremy and Adam had I would no tbet a whole lot that their presense would have made much difference for the US Men.
We can see it is becoming a quad game for the Men and a clean Rippon was not going to get close to this podium. A clean Jeremy could have made a difference but that is a crap shoot at best. He could have finished 5-7 or 7-10 or even lower.
I don;t think the US Men will be hurt by having two at Worlds next season. They will only be hurt if the two who go are not podium contenders.
