    This is particularly good news because Nebelhorn this year, as an Olympic qualifier, not only lets the skater earn points; scores also go on the season's best list for next year. But I'd still love to see Jason get another slot

    Don't worry, he'll get SkAm when Lysacek pulls out.

    According to this tweet by Kaitlin Hawayek, the dance spot went to Hubbell/Donohue.

    "Huge congrats to our training mates @madihubbell and @zachtdonohue on getting assigned to #SkateAmerica! Go USA! #detroitrepresent"
    And it's on the International Assignments page now on the USFSA site.

    Maybe they're spreading things out so that none of these top skaters risks getting injured. I would rather have seen someone other than Zhang go....but, that's personal preference and has nothing to do with the scheme of things. I don't find her skating very inspiring, altho she's beautiful on the ice. Just doesn't have that "it" factor. As far as Adam Rippon - he's always been a personal favorite and I think he either does something this year or fades into history. Obviously the USFSA sees something in him worth giving him another chance.
