    Top 10 pairs??

    Okay, we've done mens and ladies, how about top 10 pairs? Here are my picks in no particular order:

    Shen/Zhao
    Totmianina/Marinin
    Zhang/Zhang
    Langlois/Archetto - I have my fingers crossed
    Marcoux/Buntin
    Pang/Tong
    Petrova/Tikhonov
    Zagorska/Suidek
    Obertas/Sokolov
    Inoue/Baldwin

    A good performance could also put Putnam/Wirtz in the top ten

    Shen and Zhao
    T&M
    Pang and Tong
    Zhang and Zhang
    Petrov and Tikhanov
    Orcher and Lucash
    Langois and Archetto
    Obertas and Slanov
    Innoue and Baldwin
    Zagorski and Saudek

    The top two are easy. Third place is wide open. the top ten in the proper order is also difficult.

    Just my thoughts.

    i love the fact that you put O&L so high I totally think they are capable of such a finish. They are much more consistent then a lot of the other teams they are up against. They just always seem to get hosed at competitions but the judges. At Nats, they clearly were robbed in the SP and I think in the LP as well. At 4CC they definetly were robbed in the SP. I am just hoping the judges will treat them with respect!

    Hi brenlyn - O&L are the only team that is not focusing on the 'baletoc' style but moving in the direction of originality in style. I dig it and expect them to be contenders in future Worlds, and maybe the 2006 Olys.

    They were sooo goood at Nats.

    Orscher & Lucash added a 3flip throw to their SP, if they can pull that off I think they may shake things up a bit, provided of course they skate the rest of the sp and the lp well.

    If I remember correctly, he screwed up his triple toe at Worlds, but otherwise I had them in first place. Not putting down I&B whom I considered the best last year but did not develop as much as I thought they should. It's nice to think the americans are coming back in Pairs. That throw 3 flip should move them up in the standings. Go O&L.

    garrett seems to struggle a lot with his 3toe quite a bit, he was having a lot of problems with it at 4CC. hopefully it'll be okay at worlds this year, that is the only consistent tech. problem i see with them.

    I really don't think any of our pairs have the potential to even crack the top ten...
