ETA: Have they officially named the team for JGP #7? If she does well in the FS, I think Barbie has a case for getting another assignment over Samantha Cesario, though it will be a tough choice as I think they'll end up scoring pretty close to each other. I believe Angela Wang and Hannah Miller are locked in for JGP Croatia, yes?
http://www.usfsa.org/Athletes.asp?id=216 - nothing is solved for JGP #6 and #7.
Solution will be after Ladies FS (and also for Men after Men FS and for Dance after Dance FD).
Now the main at #6 are Miller (place 2 Linz) and Wang (place 3 Lake Placid with extremely good FS). I believe - they will not be substituted.
The main at #7 are Keiser (place 1 Istanbul, so she will not be substituted) and Cesario (place 3 Linz) - she may be substituted by Long if she earn place 1 or 2.

Yes, I think that sounds reasonable.
Also we must remember that #6 is so close to #5, that it is no sense to return to USA and it is very hard - two so close starts.
So it is not good to send Long to #6 in any circumstance.

Rather disappointing for Miu Sato as well -- she came in 5th at Japanese Nationals last year and actually skated an excellent LP at Junior Worlds last year; I thought she was severely undermarked there.
Miu SATO had a rough SP at JW 2012: she fell on the first 3t and couldn't complete the combo. She started at #8 in the FS; the judges tend to lowball the PCS scores in the first two groups for the FS. That's where she took the hit: 39.89. She was 12th in the FS overall: 7th in TES, but 14th in PCS.
I'm really glad that the US has Barbie Long as a rising talent. I really enjoy watching her skate (Courtney Hick's you can take some pointers). I know Pink Panther has that sultry feel to it, but Barbie really knows how to use her shoulders, but fix the camel spin!
Hinano Isobe seems like the Japanese Vanessa Lam. Dynamic but can't leave the ice for more than 6 inches.
Where did this french lady come from? I really enjoyed her program too. She has great SS but just needs to fix some jump technique.
I don't like Gerasimova's program, and Shershark looks like a woman now (or closer to Gedevanishvili XD)
Miu Sato is wonderful. Too bad about her jump mistakes but I really liked her everything else. She reminds me of Miki Ando with better SS at that age. She's probably my favorite Japanese junior. Loved her dress too!
Finally, another person who skates to Joe Hisaishi. Xiawen Guo needs to work on deeper edges but oddly didn't effect her step sequence that much.
I just saw the videos and i am surprised no one talked about hicks scores up to now. Well poor girl popping the Combo, almost falling out of Layback double footing flip and haveing troubles in steps.... AND ending up in 6th place ?!?! sooo lucky. I mean she got the 2nd best PCS for THIS ?!?! She was totally held up with the scores. That´s just not fair for some of the girls behind her. or am I totaly wrong on this
The one girl I felt was significantly robbed was Gabriella Josefsson. Maybe Xiaowen Guo who went clean (but with a 2F and 3T2t combo), and skated really, really slow, but I felt Joseffson should have been ahead of Guo, because with the same content (2F, 3t2t) she just skated better.
For one thing, although her combo was not there today, Courtney's final spin was still super amazing, and I would have given it +3; the judges only +2. She didn't fall. Most of the girls behind her did (1 point to Courtney there). And she skates very fast. And only 2 judges called negative GOE on the flip, so apparently they didn't see the double foot. This is not surprising. And it was a triple flip. A lot of the girls behind her did a double. With so much fog in the arena, there were a lot of slight double footed jumps that went uncalled throughout the competition-the judges have to have had a heck of a time, as did we.
Versus Sato, who was immediately behind her, Sato fell on her 2A and also popped her combination. Then you had Shershak- who did a 3t3t and fell on it and a double flip, and also only got level 2 on one spin and level 3 on each of the other two spins, and level 2 footwork.
As I said, there were not a lot of good performances in the ladies' sp.
