Likely you are on to something there, MM.
I have to disagree. He would have needed to score 90 + for cop to say he gave a good skate., 70 + are now just ok skates
would appreciate any info on haruna suzuki and carolina kostner. thanks in advance
I'm thinking 90+ is excellent, 80's really good, 70's....well, guess it depends on what everyone else does. MM makes a good point about possibly testing things out - I'd love to see them both bring their very very best to worlds. I only hope the travel back and forth doesn't mess things up for them.
Thanks for reports and links!

thank you jiggs. i had no idea kana muramoto was at this event. can't tell from scores how people skated (thanks, COP!) but still good to see at least the scores! ^__^ i also wondered why only keiser was sent, and to 'junior'-- why not the other 8-13 level skaters from our senior nationals?
first vid uploaded by official event channel.
Sorry guys but Amodio's skating skills are actually pretty great and deserve 8+, and yes even though he had low transitions I dont see why he shouldnt get high ss, cause normally these two scores shouldnt be mixed, from my point of view he is very fast, smooth and has clean great edges, he had the best SS at Euros.Amodio's PCS is worthty. Not only did he beat Joubert in every component but he received 8.25 for his SS even though his TR is just 6.75.

Thanks to everybody for the reports and who landed what, much appreciated.
First & foremost, CONGRATULATIONS to Brian Joubert for landing (& getting full credit) for *two* quads! Wow, he's really going all out, for that he has my utmost respect & awe. This tells me that, like Jeremy, he's testing out his full technical content & arsenal. And since he landed BOTH quads here, then I see him going for both at Worlds as well in a couple of weeks time.
***Note: I wish Brian would change his SP back to last year's, which I thought was a masterpiece, same with the LP, his "Ode to Joy" was exquisite. Jmho.***
However, if I were Jeremy, I would play it safe and not go for the quad. His forte is artistry, whereas Brian's is technical, therefore I say each skater should capitalize on their own individual strengths, and in this case Jeremy's is the PCS. No shame in that whatsoever, especially when one is the very best in the world when it comes to presenting a program. (:^) Same goes for Alissa as well. (:^)
NOW ONTO THE FS!
Comparing to the scoring at last year's worlds, Gachinski did 4T+3T, 3A, and 3Lo and got 78.34.
It just doesn't look right when a skater falls on two of his three jumping passes and still scores that high. That's the kind of performance where the commentators say, "not the skate he was hoping for."
