    Reynolds still has "continuing issues with breaking in skating boots," according to today's press release from Skate Canada.

    Misha Ge will replace Kevin Reynolds. He finally gets to compete at a Grand Prix event.

    Mishin told about minor injury of knee (maybe "political injury").

    Most probably, Voronov or Menshov will be substitute.

    I do wonder about whether this is a political injury-after all if Plushenko were to skate & do well at CoR, it might well have helped keep Kovtun out of the GPF. It is a very packed men's field there - significantly less so with Plushenko's withdrawal. Since Plushenko has already gotten his qualifying scores at Volvo Cup, the competition serves no particular purpose for him, I would think.

    Clearly it is a programmed withdraw, did he need the zilionth CoR medal, risk injury, overload his preparation and expose himself not 100% prepared? I never thought he would go and I m sure the decision is the right one. He stated himself after Volvo
    "I just haven't decided yet whether to perform at Moscow stage of ISU Grand Prix circuit," he said.
    "My main goal is my fourth Olympics, where I want to earn a place at the podium. And I'm ready to change my plans radically to prepare for the Games in the best possible way."

    Do you think he will skip either Russian Nationals or Europeans?

    highly his CoR was a political withdrawal, this was hinted few months back he may not compete at all, so no surprise there
    he needs some tweaking on his programs and more preparation, I'm ure he wont compete both at Nationals and Europeans to decrease the chance of injury

    I think he will skip Nationals and go to Europeans to get feedback from an international ISU panel for his programs

    Europeans is just two weeks before team event's short program, so while I would be pretty sure he would skip the nationals and go to Euros, now I dont know. For all skaters this team event dates are not a good deal but for Euro competitors worse.. If he thinks he is too competitive he will go Euros, if not, maybe skatign at Sochi Ice would be enough for him, no matter how he will skate there I dont believe Kovtun would do better, yes I know he was second in CoC but thats not Sochi..
    Plushenko is one of the faces of Russia for Olys in their campaign, I think he wont risk Euros and Cor and RN for this.

    No surprise there, they want a lesser threat for Kovtun to medal and go through the GPF
