    Didn't Kovtun compete last year?

    So no, the skater did not have to compete at Worlds.

    My guess is that it will be France, USA, Japan, Canada, Russia, and Italy. (Maybe China, not sure.)

    Italy should be out, since we have 0 GP Men points and just 292 GP Ladies points, since Carolina didn't compete...

    It's offical: Japan, USA, Canada, France, Russia and China are the six teams to compete at the World Team Trophy. Congratulaitons to them!

    I believe the rule is that you HAVE TO compete at WTT if you are the top ranking skater/couple (two two for singles) AND you finish top 10 at Worlds. Otherwise everything is fair game.

    MEN:
    Canada: Both Patrick Chan (WR 1/WC 1) and Kevin Reynolds (WR 16 (next best)/WC 5) will be required to go
    Japan: Yuzuru Hanyu (WR 2/WC 4) and Daisuke Takahashi (WR 3/WC 6) will be required to go
    USA: Open field. Jeremy Abbott did not compete at Worlds and Ross Miner did not rank in the top 10, so the U.S. is free to pick whoever.
    France: Brian Joubert (WR 13 (2nd best for France)/WC 9) will be required to go. Florent Amodio will not since he did not rank in the top 10 at Worlds.
    Russia: Open field. Two two ranking guys were Gachniski and Menshov and neither competed at Worlds.
    China: Open field. Han Yan did not compete at Worlds and Nan Song did not place in the top 10.

    LADIES
    Canada: Kaetlyn Osmond (WR 32/WC 8) will have to compete. Amelie Lacoste is ranked 24 in WR, but was not at Worlds so not obliged to compete.
    Japan: Mao Asada ( WR 3/WC 3) will have to compete. Akiko Suzuki is the top ranking skater, but she did not place in the top 10 at Worlds.
    USA: Ashley Wagner (WR 5/WC 5) will have to compete. Alissa Czisny (WR 11) is out for the season, so the second spot is open.
    France: Open field. Neither of the France's top ranked skaters got top 10 at Worlds.
    Russia: Adelina Sotnikova (WR 9/WC 9) will have to compete; second spot is open as top ranking Leonova did not finish top 10 at Worlds.
    China: Zijun Li (WR 13/WC 7) will have to compete; second spot is open sine Kexin Zhang did not finish in the top 10 at Worlds.

    PAIRS
    Canada: Duhamel/Radford (WR 3/WC 3) will have to compete
    Japan: ???? They only have one pair really not sure if they will be ready for WTT.
    USA: Open. Denney/Coughlin were not at Worlds. Not sure who they would send.
    France: James/Cipres (WR 12/ WC 8) will have to compete
    Russia: Volosozhar/Trankov (WR 1/WC 1) will have to compete
    China: Pang/Tong (WR 5/WC 5) will have to compete

    DANCE:
    Canada: Virtue/Moir (WR 2/WC 2) will have to compete
    Japan: Open, but likely will be the Reeds.
    USA: Davis/White (WR 1 /WC 1) will have to compete
    France: Pechalat/Bourzat (WR 3/WC 6) will have to compete
    Russia: Bobrova/Soloviev (WR 4/WC 3) will have to compete
    China: Open.
