* You can select the skaters of any country. I think that the important thing in this thread would be to see which skater, we would like to see getting an international competition. Because we believe that they deserve it for any reason
Here are the skaters that I would like to see getting a GP assignment :
Ladies : Kerstin Frank (Austria)
Cynthia Phaneuf (Canada)
Min Jeong Kwak (South Korea)
Candice Didier (France)
Elena Glebova (Estonia)

Men: Christopher Caluza (Philippines)

Off the ice
Hurtado/Diaz. They had one last year and I'd love to see them get another this season.
Elladj Balde and Jeremy Ten would be nice, too.
Sorry to bother, but just a quick question.

I thought members of the national team got an assignment and he finished third.
Same with Balde (Except with fourth).
Better yet, why did Rogozine get one?
But to answer the thread:
Tripping on the Podium
Wicked Yankee Girl
There are 3 open dance slots, and I'd like to see Ralph & Hill get a second slot, Chock & Bates get a second slot, and Zlobina & Sitnikov get a second slot. If someone cancels, I'd like to see Paul & Islam get one, or Hurtado & Diaz.
I like to see teams be able to start the season with a chance at making the GPF!
I think it is better for teams like P&I, and for that matter Hurtado & Diaz, to go to a Senior B & win. I don't think it does them that much good, to go to a GP and finish last, other than it qualifies them to go to Worlds, if they skate an adequate score.
It's only my selfish self who would like to see them.
I'm hoping IN will carry the Senior B from Salt Lake this year, BTW. I'd recommend P&I to compete there.

Gotta Have Music
GP spots are decided by season best score. After all the guaranteeds have their one/two spots, the federations chose based on the season's best. Balde and Ten were 91st and 78th on the season best list, which was too low. One or hte other can still get Skate Canada, which has an open spot.

Simply the best.
I think he's staying in junior circuit one more season which I think is constructive in the big picture. He's got a real good chance to make top six in Sochi, and on the podium, perhaps on the top, in Pyeongchang.

Samuel Contesti (ITA) has decided to retire (he is 29). That means there are two open spots: COC and TEB.
