Thanks hohoho. For ladies , mens and dance you managed to list the competitors in reverse order of the SP start order.
Pairs is a little bit trickier. Jones/Gaskell did compete at senior nationals last year so to be consistent they should be listed after Lawrence/Swiegers.
There will be a draw for skate order between Purich/Schultz , Steele/Schultz and Dube/Wolfe ( byed skaters who did not do senior nationals last year ) to skate immediately before Jones/Gaskell ( the lowest placed at last senior nationals of the byed skaters).
If Bobak/Beharry are skating senior then Tou/Penasse become subs as there will not be more than 12 pairs at nationals and Bobak/Beharry would have a bye due to JGPF. As well they would be involved in the draw mentioned above.
Hi Nadster, wasn't intended to be a start order just competitor list.
In Ladies, question mark is either Myriane Samson or Alexie Gelinas will be there.
Pairs is tricky. I am thinking Bobak/Beharry should skate Senior with their performances on the JGP. Couldn't list Tou/Penasse as SUB until the formal list is released by Skate Canada.

There is no benefit to them competing Senior domestically this year. Based on age, I think they can compete again as Juniors internationally next year as well, but if they win Junior at home this year, they will have to skate Senior domestically next year.
Another note, a really minor one, I believe Taylor Steele and Rob Shultz represent WO.
In dance, I'm really interested to see if Bissonnette and Lockey Chatham will actually show up at Nationals. From my scouring the web, I don't think they have competed anywhere since last year's Canadians. Are they still a team?

I'm going to be interested to see how Paul & Islam, Gilles & Poirier, and Ralph & Hill finish at Nationals. I'm hoping for R&H to knock it outta the park.
I didn't think so but since your lists line up so perfectly I just wanted to point that out so that one does not have to wait to get the official SP/SD start order. You pretty much put it out there perfectly for ladies, mens and dance.

They'll skate after the non-byed skaters but before the byed skaters who did senior nationals last year.
So some predictions:
(assuming Samson is NOT competing)
1-2 Cynthia Phaneuf
1-2 Amelie Lacoste
3-5 Alexandra Najarro
3-5 Kate Charbonneau
3-5 Kaetlyn Osmond
Very hard to predict. Depends on how Phaneuf responds to Orser. Lacoste has been skating well. Expecting Najarro to skate better here than Challenge. Same as Charbonneau. If Osmond corrects the few mistakes she made at challenge she could be higher than 3-5 group.
1 Patrick Chan
2-5 Kevin Reynolds
2-5 Jeremy Ten
2-5 Liam Firus
2-5 Elladj Balde
Chan is a lock on 1st. 2-5 will be a toss up from the BC boys and Elladj. Outside shot from Nam.
1-2 Moore-Towers / Moscovich
1-2 Duhamel / Radford
3-4 Lawrence / Swiegers
3-4 Dube / Wolfe
5 Seguin / Evans
MT/M and D/R I think are a lock for the 1-2 positions. I think D/R have the momentum. L/S and D/W will battle for third here, but can move up if one of the top two falter. Leaving 5th for the QC Section champs and Challenge Silver medallists
1 Virtue / Moir
2 Weaver / Poje
3-5 Gilles / Poirier
3-5 Paul / Islam
3-5 Ralph / Hill
V/M are a lock at 1st and W/P as well in 2nd. 3-5 grouping will totally depends on who really wants it. I am leaning towards G/P.
Surprised you left out Rogozine. Personally I see Rogozine , Reynolds and Ten fighting for 2nd to 4th spots. I see Balde, Nam and Firus fighting for the last spot on the national team.

The other thing is that Rogozine and Reynolds do not tend to skate their best at nationals. I have a feeling that Rogozine pips ahead due to the fact that he is the most consistent internationally.
