    It will be interesting to see if Machida may become this season's Denis Ten.

    There might still be some changes after the LP though... potentially, Dai, Kozu and Max could all still move up, while (I think?) Adam and Jason might not have the same scoring potential, if the former group delivers (which they didn't here, but oh well).

    Machida was outstanding, l loved it. Jason and Adam were rocking it!

    I love you Dai, but sheesh what happened? He looked so uncomfortable
    and slow on the ice.

    Sadly, Dai's time has passed him by.

    Protocals:

    Tatsuki: +2 on 4T-3T, 1.71 on 3A, level 4 on all but one.
    Jason: All level 4 (and from Amano no less!!!) elements, and lots of GOE except for 3f-3t combo. All but two elements with GOE of 1.00 or higher.
    Adam: 4Lz was UR (ended up getting 6.93 vs. Jason's 8.2 for his tano 3Z), all level 4 but one. -GOE on 3A. Step sequence only element with +1.00 GOE
    Takahiko: Lots of -GOE on 3T and 3Z (no combo), +GOE on 3A
    Daisuke: < on 4T and negative GOE on all jumping elements.
    Max: Lost a lot of points on levels (spins level 1 and 2)

    To be honest thought Machida made the GPF last season while Denis really hadn't done much of anything since finishing 8th at Worlds in 2009 as a 15 year old.

    A short summary of my thoughts in emoticons:

    1. After seeing that the competition had happened a few hours earlier than I thought
    2. After seeing someone's comment that their fantasy skating team didn't do so well
    3. Seeing that Tatsuki Machida is in 1st and Daisuke Takahashi in 5th
    4. Jason Brown is in 2nd

    Will Max make the Olympic team if he continues to skate like this? His skating skills, even in this small group, is near the bottom. He can't lose his money maker, the jumps.

    That's a nasty comment and shows no respect for what he's accomplished or overcome with his knee surgery or the many beautiful, artistic, clever programs he's done.

    We don't have the super slow-mo for the jumps, but with the regular slow-mo, there was NO WAY for me that Takahashi and Rippon only got a single downgrade for their quads. To me, there was def 1/2 a turn missing, so it should have been a <<.
    I love Kozuka (and the music!) but his Quad looked like it should have gotten a <. Plus, it was two-footed. Max Aaron's Quad Salchow was huge in comparison, and he ended up getting 2 points less for it (incl. the point for the fall)

    Oh, well...
