Tatjana tweeted that there will be "a surprise. :-)" in the coming GP assignments.
Does anyone have the right guess?
Like Plush getting 3 slots???
Plushenko has never wanted to do more than one GP event. I don't see it.
Wicked Yankee Girl
He didn't finish tops at Worlds, so how would he qualify for 3 spots?
True, it's impossible to get 3 slots. But maybe he's not assigned to COR but to other GP event like Skate Canada, Cup of China or Skate America.
Maybe someone else is "unretiring?"
Maybe the Kerrs? Please!

In 2004, Plushy was assigned to 3 events but withdrew from the first two and did only CoR; he complained that he had a sinus condition that made air travel difficult and painful. He did only one event in 2005, again, CoR. He skipped the 2006, 2007 and 2008 GPs and did one GP--CoR--in 2009. He doesn't like to travel, that's a given.
Prior to 2004, Plushenko was a young man at the peak of his powers and doing 3 GPs was well within his capabilities. But he is now 28 and hasn't competed in the past 20 months, so it's an entirely different story.

Do you really interesting in Plushenko GP assigment? And this will be suprise for you? Sorry, but nothing interesting for me if he will skate at CoR.
Dont like when people made this way - if you know something, but didnt want tell this to other people, better post nothing, then to talk hints. It will be funny if tomorrow we will not find nothing interesting
If we will find something, because ISU have so bad managment and work so slow.Maybe they need younger president
leave no stone unturned
