    Fingers crossed for Yuzuru! I'm also waiting for a great performance by Fernandez and maybe a good program by Denis Ten.

    Oh I see, must have just been a rumor it was possible.

    His whole body is one serious injury at this point.

    Deadline for substitutions for the Men event has passed already though.

    That's so weird to me. The skaters most likely to be on the top of the podium are skating in the fourth group instead of the very last group. Oh well.

    Looking forward to a great men's event!

    I remember 4 years ago when I was talking about the 2014 crew. What a difference 4 years make. The guys from that 2014 group in 2010 who actually made it to 2014 are Javi, Chiddy (though he was a medal contender in 2010), Amodio, D10, and Brezina. Since Vancouver:
    Chiddy won 3 World titles (though the last 2 were questionable)
    Javi won 2 Euro titles and a World Bronze medal last year
    D10 won last year's World Silver (though should've won altogether)
    Brezina finished in the top 10 all 4 WCs since Vancouver, including 2 4th place finishes (2010, 2011)
    Amodio finished in the top 5 in 2012

    And then you have Hanyu, who is a newbie to the big boys club

    I think Abbott and Brown will be fine to make the FS but Liam Firus has a good shot he will be watching fromt he sidelines. Does anyone know how he should hold up? Where are those Jenna McCorkell types when you need them LOL

    No predictions from me. I'm just super excited for this event and hope everyone skates clean so there are no excuses for the judges to prop up Pluschenko. I know it sounds like I'm being bitter and vindictive but I just really think he's past his prime and doesn't really have CoP-friendly programs. There are 4 or 5 other skaters at least who I think have better programs/skills than him. Whatever happens though, still excited!

    Definitely putting the start of group 4 into my calendar. I unfortunately have a midterm at 11AM PST, but at least Yuzu, Javi and Patrick are all skating back to back so I can take a break from cramming and catch them live!

    PLYUSHCHENKO ... As admirable as his efforts are, I hope they don't inflate his scores too much. There's a lot of talented skaters I'd rather see on the podium.
    I was actually hoping he'd let Kovtun have a chance too
    .
    Plush is my all time favourite, But i agree on this, Seeing him get a SP score here as high as a clean Fernandez at Euros is very worrysome, Fernandez's Short is much more difficult

    I only discovered Liam Firus this year at the Canadian Nationals, and was surprised just how much of a clone of Patrick Chan he was. Really, I'm not even exaggerating. Every little "trademark" move and attitude you could think of when you picture Chan, he was doing the same things.
    Except he doesn't do a quad.
    But still, his skating skills and transitions are way stronger than many in this field - which I'm afraid will become completely irrelevant 6 skaters later, once Plushenko has skated and led to any notion of Skating Skills and Transitions being erased for the entire competition.
    ... so to answer your question: no idea!
