    I didn't get much sleep last night, so maybe I'm hallucinating......

    How come NHK has both Hanyu and Takahashi (#3 and #2 seeds) when both are doing only two events? And TEB has both Joubert and Amodio (#4 and #5 seeds)?

    Interesting that Weir got 2 GPs....well, he does sell tickets, especially at CoR in Russia. Not surprised the host federations would want to invite him.

    Skate America has left one of its host pick spots empty for the time being. Saving it for Lysacek if he actually comes back? Ditto for CoR and its one empty host pick spot. I guess that one's left for Plushenko if he decides to return to the GP too.

    CoC has three world champions on its roster: Ando, Asada, Kostner, as well as the reigning Junior World Champion Lipnitskaia. The Chinese audience is up for a treat this fall. The TEB field is also quite deep for the ladies: Kostner, Ando, Lipnitskaya, Tuktamysheva, Wagner.

    I'm a bit sad that Nagasu, Czisny and Korpi only get 1 GP each, though it's not entirely surprising.

    Thank you so much, npavel!

    Does any of you have any idea how come both Daisuke and Yuzuru get assigned at NHK? Thought both are seeded skaters from the Nice Worlds...

    No idea at all. It sounds like the rules were not followed...

    It is very strange, because it appears that the rules regarding the top seeds are followed in every other discipline aside from the men!

    I think the Japan Federation has taken them as host, so none complained

    The entry lists are pretty terrible honestly. Far too many underwhelming skaters given 1 or 2 assignments, far too many really talented skaters getting only 1 assignment or staying junior. Shocked Han Yan is staying junior....

    Unfortunate that Armin continues to get screwed in favor of Richard. They could have gotten 1 each instead of 2 for Rich and 0 for Armin.

    Caroline usually does better at international competitions than national ones. That's one factor that makes her unique.
    I think she will have a big problem at next year's Nationals however. She will have to contend with the other girls' National inflation.

    I felt this way for a while but now I'm actually sensing a turning of the tides: 4CC over Czisny, and 2 GP assignments. I don't know that the USFSA would have always made these choices for Caroline...
