    Interesting theory...

    Well, it's only a theory, but it makes sense to me!
    It's a good plan, though. The difference between a 3F+3T isn't huge (especially if one has a flutz) and it would serve them well to keep the same(ish) jump layout, instead of having to learn another combination over the off-season.

    The top two was rock solid technically. They did a really good job.

    She has grown a lot, she was 140 cm and now is 151 cm. And her body changed, she was a baby last season and now she is a teenage girl

    Sakhanovich a month ago at test skate was falling all over the place
    One of the specialists who works with skaters on their physical condition (IIRC, he worked with Yagudin and Sasha Cohen) said last year that Serafima's landings don't have bent knees issue even though it looks like it at first, she just has strong legs and takes landing position very quickly, he also said it's actually good for the jumps

    Sakhanovich's lutz is questionable, even though she didn't recieve any 'e' in Russia it might be different at the JGP. Her coach, Alina Pisarenko, worked(es?) as a technical specialist at the local competitions and knows the rules very well, I think she saw a possibility of 'e' and decided to change the combination, especially considering 3Lz is a required jump next season

    Some thoughts:

    Karen!!! That was awesome!!!!!

    I also really liked HJ and Serafima, too bad about the latter's fall on her 3f....

    Proklova's cute... that's really all I can say.... (she's kind of eh, IMO)

    Kato had a nice skate... except I couldn't focus on it because there was an ad playing at the same time as her video....

    Apparently HJ's video has the most youtube views (11,145) As an HJ fan, I'm pleasantly surprised, but I think Karen's awesome skate deserves that many too.

    (Or I could be reading too much into this...)

    Many Korean Yuna fans also support Hae-Jin. That would explain her YT views.

    I really enjoyed Proklova's performance. Amazing presence and command of the ice. Loved her attention to detail in her movements. She was the revelation of this competition for me, so far.

    Karen Chen was great, but I kind of expected her to be.

    Proklova is INCREDIBLE. astounding blade work and she dances like a true ballerina. I hope with all my heart that she'll keep her jumps.

    Karen CHen is wonderful...solid jumps, nice choreography, polished, and she never loses speed or energy (ah...youth). How old is she? (I'm guessing 14?)
