Notice a few things.
Canada only used 1 of its 2 mens spots and 1 of the 3 pairs spots. Kind of get mad why they are not using all spots. There definitely is enough quality in both disciplines to fill those spots.
As a result USA ( 4th highest finisher at last JW in mens ) got 2 spots where they would have only received one had Canada used its spots.
I guess Nguyen is Canada's new hope. Perhaps they conceded a spot to the US in return for not sending Brown or Farris. Overall, men's lineup seems not so strong.
At the rink. Again.
And the US promptly put Savary in. Good for him as he barely met the cut of age date!
Tripping on the Podium
Extremely excited to see Li Zijun. It looks like not a terribly strong ladies field (besides Shelepen and Siraj I guess) so I hope Zijun does really well.
Here's a video of her training 3F-3T http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vQKYGGc6Xo
And a version of her new SP from Artistry on Ice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92zP8kHCTyM
Thank God for Stephane Lambiel and Matt Savoie!
Miyabi Oba is definitely a contender as well. She placed 8th at Jr. Worlds (Zijun 9th) and has a pretty reliable 3s/3t. Agafonova could also contend if she improved consistency and skating skills since last season. This is a tough enough ladies field I'd say.

Li, Siraj, Oba, Shelepen, Agafonova... Rather deep field here. Let alone dark horses we don't know yet. It should interesting, hope there will be any video sources.
Pairs are strong, too - Chinese, Russians, Americans. I'm sure Sui/Han will win, so only two spots on the plate are debatable.
And I'm really hope Kosigina/Moroshkin will put two decent performances and bring home gold.
I'm surprised to see Sui/Han in the JGP again this season. I thought that since they already medalled in last years senior's gpf, wouldn't they just want to stay in seniors right now? But I guess it'll be the same as last year. They will try to qualify for both the senior and junior finals. And if they don't get into the senior one, they'll just be in jgpf this year.
I looked at the senior gp entries and only saw Sui/Han in Skate Canada. Is that all they're doing?

I believe that this year you can compete in the GPF or the JGPF but not both.
Looks like they updated the list. It's a very deep field. Here are the 13 contenders:
Zijun LI CHN 7
Miyabi OBA JPN 15
Yukiko FUJISAWA JPN 15 S
Yuki NISHINO JPN 15 S
Polina AGAFONOVA RUS 22
Polina SHELEPEN RUS 22
Rosa SHEVELEVA RUS 22 S
Yasmin SIRAJ USA 29
Kiri BAGA USA 29 S
Samantha CESARIO USA 29 S
Lauren DINH USA 29 S
Courtney HICKS USA 29 S
Vanessa LAM USA 29 S
For gold, I think it will come down to just three girls
Polina Shelepen, Samantha Cesario, and Vanessa Lam
Maybe one of these three will bomb and the other one will get a silver.
The rest of them can only hope for a bronze at this point. Anyone of them can be out of the top 10 easily.
Wait, those with the letter S next to them are the substitutes, aren't they? This includes Samantha Cesario and Vanessa Lam. Of the rest there seems to be 5 contenders for the podium: Shelepen, Siraj, Agafonova, Li, and Oba.

Nishino on the JGP for the 4th straight year?! Hopefully she gets the TBD spot at NHK! She did place 6th at Nationals (though behind Risa Shoji who also could get it)
It seems P.Agafonova gets taller and much improves through last season. She gets a high chance to win this event.
http://youtu.be/GSq212BCOSI She's on AOI.
It's Chinese federation politics. S/H are not Yao Bin's students. A rival coach's, actually... I'm sure they would've been glad to have 2 GP's and be done with JGP altogether.

Although a very full competitive schedule last year didn't seem to bother them -- they did 3 GP's including GPF, 2 JGP's, JW, two national championships, and Asian Games. But I think they'd be better off spending more time improving their skating instead of competing so much. The Chinese federation is crazy. They should really let them off of competing at the junior level again.
I suspect the Chinese federation is secretly admitting the age-fraud of Sui/Han and decided to let them "stay junior" one more year.
