    GP Final Analysis and Predictions

    Ladies

    Elizaveta
    Mao
    Carolina
    Akiko
    Alissa
    Alena

    The women's event is basically wide open. Any one of them can win. Whoever skate the cleanest. Mao will probably win since she has room for error due to pcs. Elizaveta has been the most consistent this season. She is practically guaranteed to get a medal of some kind. I will say Mao- gold, Elizaveta- silver, and Alissa or Carolina bronze.

    Mens:

    Patrick
    Daisuke
    Jeremy
    Michal
    Javier
    Yuzuru

    The men will be a battle between Patrick, Daisuke, and Javier. If of those three skate clean he will win. If they all falter Patrick will win. Yuzuru is the dark horse of this competition. If Michal and Jeremy get there tech together they will be competitive but I doubt that will happen in two weeks. Takahashi -gold , Patrick -silver, Javier-bronze

    Pairs
    V/T
    S/S
    K/S
    Z/Z
    T/T
    D/R

    The pairs is once again an three men race between V/T,S/S,K/S. S/S have an edge if everyone goes clean. If S/S goes for the 3A, anyone of the teams could win. S/S =gold, K/S- silver, V/T bronze

    Dance

    Its the D/W and V/M show. D/W is going to loose the SD but have enough lead in the FD to take gold. If V/M manage to clean up there tech and get those lv4's that been eluding them there lead in the SD will be enough to take gold. W/P should take the bronze.

    LADIES

    1) Asada 2) Tuktamysheva 3) Kostner

    MEN

    1) Chan 2) Takahashi 3) Fernandez

    I wish Takahashi would win, but I don't think he's going to. I know Daisuke got a really high score at NHK, but they'll probably score Patrick even higher at the GPF. He's just Chan, he almost always wins.

    PAIRS

    1) Volosozhar/Trankov 2) Savchenko/Szolkowy 3) Kavaguti/Smirnov

    This was hard to call.. S/S could win if they skate like they did at COR, not like how they skated at their first two events. If they skate like they did at their second event, they could fall off the podium and the Zhangs could get on, but I don't think they're going to skate that badly.

    DANCE

    1) Virtue/Moir 2) Davis/White 3) Pechalat/Bourzat

    Given D/W's troubles at this last event (COR) I think it's V/M's to take. I think their programs are slightly better this season than D/W's and we haven't seen THEM fall. I'm hoping for Pechalat/Bourzat for third instead of the Shibutanis and I think they'll be able to get it.
