    As it stands now, I'm guessing:

    1) Kim
    2) Asada
    3) Wagner (or Suzuki or Kostner)

    Even with the poor outings of Wagner/Suzuki I still think they will get it together for Worlds.

    Pairs
    1) S/S
    2) V/T
    3) P/T or D/R (hopefully!)

    Men
    1) Hanyu
    2) Chan
    3) Takahashi

    I think V/T had a great outing against the Germans at Euros but that was really the only time I've seen them bring it against them. I'm hoping they skate well at Worlds, but it's high pressure for them and they haven't been spectacular this season (not that the Germans have too).

    Well I have been a member of this forum before it was even called The Golden Skate Forum. I have not been so bold as to make this statement. However, I am going to say that in my expert opinion and I do know what I am talking about. Gracie Gold is the next ladies Gold medal winner. I would work on the spins and if possible turn the triple lutz tripple toe into Triple Lutz, Triple Loop, Triple Loops. I think the spins expecially Beilman needs faster and more rotations.

    Realistically, Marissa and Simon may not have much of a chance at the podium, but I hope they have a great skate and improve on Nationals.
