It appears that Paul/Islam's National scores were closest to reality and G/P's the farthest away. And these two teams are very close indeed based on this season's scores.
On the one hand, the last team to peak at 4th was the Ukranian team of Romanova/Yaroshenko in 1994.
However.... this happened at a really bad time for W/P (as if there is a good time for this to happen, admittedly). Number of Olympic slots on the line (and while I do think that V/M and P/I/GP or R/H COULD earn three slots, it's by no means a given), momentum slowing down due to a disappointing GP season, the rapid improvement of B/S and C/L (as well as the tenacity P/B demonstrated).... a difficult obstacle to overcome.
One can only hope for the best. There are breaks and there are breaks. Sometimes a sprain is far worse. If she didn't tear tendons, muscle and require surgery that is far far better (I spent 9 day sin the hospital with operations on my ankle and could not put any weight on it for six months. It was like a bad tv movie of the week - literally I had to learn how to walk again. Hopefully Kaitlyn will be mobile soon and that she iwll be careful.
Well ankles can be tricky. First of all - we don't know if Weaver injured her dominant foot or not. And usually if it was a clean fracture then no surgery would be required. As Skaterboy indicated depending on the fracture and whether there was any ligaments torn - the length of rehabilitation would vary. At this point W/P need to be patient with this injury and work around it.
Olympic spots is not a worry for Weaver & Poje. They are still a lock for the #2 spot for Canada to go to Sochi, and if the others are so weak they cant even keep 3 spots without them and a gold or silver for Virtue & Moir that only becomes even more obvious. It is a bigger worry for the other teams.
