If Liza wins Russian nationals or even wins a world medal which is extremely dobtful her pcs is not going to go from 53 to 63 and would need to be like 66 to go to Mao Carolina or Yuna level. The fact is that no one needs a 3f3t or anything like that. If Yuna can keep doing 3lz 3t and have it be consistent then maybe it will be needed. It's far more likely that yuna stops doing 3/3 than all of a sudden Mao or Carolina start doing them.
Thanks for your kindness.

You are most welcome.

Talking of Yuna and Mao, assuming they both do clean programs, Yuna will be the winner again.
Mao will have to improve her toe jumps(Lutz, Flip) OR bring back 3A to beat Yuna in TES.
But we never know what will happen. As I said, the event is more than a year away!
Just for the sake of conversation, let's just look at the BV as planned by some of the skaters. You can see my work below.
Won't make any comments, just let you read and discuss.

Actual at NRW: 51.88
Actual at GPF: 51.97

Liza's PCS is so poor that she must do 2 triple axels next season imo

Julia... if she gains artistry without losing her jumps, will be a HARD contender; but unlikely so fast enough for Sochi. I love all three, still expect a lot.
However, now that a few mentioned 3A and quads, I'm fascinated to say that I'm all for cheering Liza doing quads.
LIZA FOR QUADS--! Who's with me?

doing quad is out of the question

Actually I heard(don't remember the source) that Yuna's Layback spin is planned for level3. Obviously she's not doing Biellmann this season.

What about Kaitlyn Osmond of Canada? She is 16 and this year has won Nebelhorn, Skate Canada, and just had an amazing skate at the qualifying competition for Canadian nationals called the Challenge. She scored 198.70 which would have won worlds last year or the GPF this year. Her technical score was 66.75

thats with inflation the highest she will place is top 5 if she does well

Actually, even 3A is nonsense. I'm hoping she manages 3/3 good. But cheering for one is allowed.

They're not as polished in the presentation side of things, but they got the jumps. Plus, home-court advantage. I also really like Zijun and want a keep an eye out for her progress up to the Olympics.
Make it three of us. I read that Japanese and Korean media already started Yuna vs Mao debates and it makes me sick. I would support Yuna vs Osmond rivalry discussion with all my heart
