    Gold changed around her jump passes in the LP back to a more comfortable set of jumps between RC and Nationals and it paid off....

    There is a direct correlation between the season's best scores and the date of the competition. With the exception of Mao's NHK SP, all of the top scores are from Europeans or the GPF.

    I don't want to rush things, but I think if Adelina and Tukt are clean, they could rival other ladies scores at Worlds - heck! they could medal

    No.
    Asada and Suzuki - NHK Trophy (Suzuki deserved it - very clean and nice skating, better than at GPF).
    Kostner, Sotnikova Tuktamysheva - yes, Euro. First ISU competition for Kostner and much better skating than at GP for other two.
    Wagner - TEB, not GPF (at GPF were falls).
    Korpi - Rostelecom Cup, not GPF (really better than at GPF skating).
    Gao - GP USA, not GPF.
    Marchei - Euro, her best in the life skating.

    So we see (these of Top 15, who had GPF and/or Euro) - season best is from Event where their skating was best. Except Mao.

    Assuming everyone skated clean programs with no errors:

    Adelina: She has the lines, extension, excellent presentation, great basics, great flow, great speed, huge jumps, difficult combinations, difficult spins, good edges, difficult footwork, and she's able to project and perform...she's definitely a total package skater. The only thing missing from Adelina's skating is consistency but her performances at Europeans are hopefully a sign of what's to come. If everyone is clean she wins, hands down.

    Kaetlyn: She has great basics, wonderful transitions, great flow, nice jumps, good combinations, good spins, and amazing connection to her music, choreography and the audience. She's another total package skater. The main thing against Kaetlyn right now is time. She needs time to develop her presentation a bit more but she's a lot farther along than most her age.

    Elizaveta: She has wonderful technique, great air position, good basics, difficult combinations, good footwork, good speed, decent consistency and a lot of energy when she performs. Liza gets into her music and the character and is also good at projecting to the judges and audience and always gives that extra umph! to her choreography. Liza's spins are the weakest out of this group and her ice coverage still needs some work. Next to Adelina and Kaetlyn her skating doesn't leave as big of an impression which is often reflected in her PCS.

    Gracie: She has good basics, nice speed, huge jumps, difficult combinations, nice transitions, decent edging, good spins and a fresh look about her. Gracie's presentation has improved but she's very stiff-looking and has a case of the airplane arms. Her biggest weakness is her lack of connection to the music or choreography. She is able to hit accents on the music but there's zero connection to what she's doing which makes her slightly boring to watch.

    KatEll, You hit the nail on the head.
