I'm really curious about this point in the season. Many comparison skates, seeing how Osmond stacks up against Mao and a surging Gold. I think Mao will have to bring it against potentially flawless SP skates and hopefully strong freeskates from Gold and Osmond... I'm also really hoping Murakami has fixed her UR's, and guessing Suzuki's disasters last week were just a flash in the pan.
In the men's I think top 2 are certain but 3rd can be a number of guys (I'm not convinced Max Aaron is the real deal quite yet, so I don't have him in the top 5).
Pairs will be critical for D/R and MT/M to convince ISU judges that both are worthy of top 5 finishes at Worlds and even podium contention.
Dance will be interesting to see if V/M can close the gap on D/W, after the GPF, especially after a less-than-ideal FD at Canadians.
Safe to say this is potentially one of the most competitive 4CC in a while!
