    My hopes would be Wagner, Edmunds, and Gao. I'm well aware that my hopes are not in line with reality though. :(

    What will most likely happen is a stab in the heart to fans who appreciate artistry on ice once Gold and Hicks, aka 2 raging bulls in a china shop, are named to the US team.

    Gao needs to improve everything about her skating to have a chance to make the team. She looks a bit slow and isn't pushing herself technically in terms of jumps either. I'm surprised Hersh picked her over Agnes or even Hicks to be honest.

    I noticed Gao's speed at a recent competition too. Based on what we've seen through the end of last season, Gao and Agnes would be the favorites. I'm very impressed by Courtney but I'm not sure how her skating will hold up through the season. A lot of us thought Angela might make an impact at Nationals last year after nailing some impressive jumps in the JGP but she ended up being a non-factor, so I hope the same won't be true for Courtney.
