    I would say there are seven countries that could potentially earn three spots.

    Realistically: Japan
    If their skaters skate at their best: Canada, France, USA, Czech Republic
    Insane Shot in the dark if the stars align: Russia, Spain (both have only one man, but that one man could realistically get silver if he/she gives a SOHL and others flop)

    Me too. I like Dornbush's skating and watched this program. If he could keep up his technical level, he'll be a top force in US, too.

    I believe if Abbott and Lysacek could go to this coming Worlds, there is a very good chance to win back 3 spots for US.

    Reports of Johnny landing PRACTICE quads>>>> like we have never heard that before

    Opinions are cool....sometimes the results matter too.
    Well practice quads are better than no practice quads. We'll see if he tries them and/or lands them successfully in his programs this season. Things have changed and I think Johnny knows he's going to need the quad if he wants to have a shot internationally. As for results, Ricky has been skating well and landing quads in competition this summer, we just saw Farris skate very well at the JGP in LP landing a lovely 3a in his SP then backing it up with a 3a-3t and 4t that both got full credit and +GOE in the FS, Ross as someone mentioned landed 4s in his program at Champs Camp and has been consistent with all the other jumps for a couple seasons now, Armin was landing 4t easily in competitions this summer, we know Messing is capable of monster 3a and 4t jumps when he's on, Jeremy could be a World medalist if not champion if he'd just finally skate clean, and Lysacek has already been World champion and Olympic champion so considering all these things I would hope we have a realistic shot at getting 3 spots for the Sochi Olympics....we certainly have the talent in this nation.
