    Cathy & Chris Reed: I came extremely close to penciling these two in with Huang & Zheng, but with all the trouble they've had lately, I really don't think they're locks
    Sara Hurtado & Adria Diaz: Had serious hopes of qualifying at Worlds, though ultimately that didn't happen
    Alisa Agafonova & Alper Ucar: Also had hopes of qualifying at Worlds after showing their potential at Europeans, though a bad short kept them out of the free
    Irina Shtork & Taavi Rand: Competing four years ago thanks to the berth his brother and his American-born partner earned and then couldn't use themselves; have improved enough since to potentially earn it themselves this time
    Danielle O'Brien & Gregory Merriman: Tragically were forced out of Nebelhorn last time by illness when they would've no doubt made it then, but this field is much stronger
    Gabriela Kubova & Matej Novak: In contrast to Shtork & Rand, he and previous partner(whom they beat out to make it here) qualified a berth last time, then couldn't use it when she broke her arm, but they were stronger together than they've been with their current partners so far
    Angelina Telegina & Otar Japaridze: Last qualifier with his previous partner last time, and he got her citizenship too, but they too might find the field has passed them by, as might even
    Allison Reed & Vasily Rogov: His previous partner and her new one, but even if they make it, there's the citizenship issue, and though they talk as if that's not a problem, even if it isn't, when they didn't make the free at Worlds last year there's the demanding Israeli Olympic Committee to consider...

    After the Reeds & Hurtado & Diaz, I really don't know which of the above to pick for the last two. Perhaps O'Brien & Merriman, and Agafonova & Ucar. Then the rest will have to wait to see if Lithuania gives their team the needed citizenship, or even if Germany uses both their spots.
    O' Brien & Merriman reportedly looked very good at the Australian Senior B.
    Reeds were excellent at Lake Placid IDC.
    Hurtado & Diaz didn't do that well at LPIDC.

    I have hopes for Agafanova & Ucar. They were badly done by the tech panel & ref at Worlds when they suddently decided the SD music they used for the pattern dance was the wrong rhythm (it had passed all year) resulting in a 2 point deduction and level 1 for both pattern dance sequences.

    James/Cipres were 8th at the 2013 World Championships, and the only French pair. Thus, as they placed in the top 10, they qualified France for 2 Pairs entries to the Olympics. Considering France has very few pairs and they're pretty much the top one (does Popova of Popova/Massot have citizenship?), they'll be at the Olympics bar injury.
