    It's funny looking at the tie breakers. I guess I understand why they work the way they do, but I wonder if Denney and Coughlin would be in the final had they skated in a field like NHK's? Nice to see a US team in the alternates the year before the olympics. Their scores were consistently higher this grand prix season from the year before.

    Seems like V/T's to lose. I feel like the other five could land in any combination. I'm not sure if that makes me more interested or less...

    V/T will have very high PCS and will be hard to beat. Russia will go 1-2-4 here, with Pang third if he is well and can do the jumps. The Canadians will have nice content, but will play catch up on PCS.

    The team with 195+ should win.

    I just hope that V/T PCS won't be absurde: if they skate clean, I can understand 70 or even 72, but not if they fall, otherwise it will be a joke competition, like CoR...

    Duhamel/Radford have the most difficult program with SBS Triple Lutz and Throw 3Lz, which will set them apart. They almost beat Kavaguti/Smirnov in Paris so hopefully they can stay on their feet this time and make it to the podium.

    I think D/C would have got 2nd, same as M-T/M, if they had skated at NHK.
