    I'm hoping for Denis Ten to put out a a flawless LP. I love his program this year.

    Plus, it would just take the sad fact into consideration that judges get more and more generous the later the skater skates. You'd earn that priviledge by having had a better SP, rather than by luck of the draw...
    I know most skaters prefer skating 2nd in the warm-up group so they can recover from the warm-up and still have the feel for the ice, but IF you can skate clean, then you definitely want to skate as late as possible.

    Funny looking graphic, thanks for the link!
    They didn't get everything right though, since they stated that Chan has 4T2T planned in the beginning, and no 3T at all in the program. He'll def try to do a 4T3T as always.
    Same for Peter Liebers who'll try to put a 3T at the end of his 1st 3A, not just a 2T.

    THE Anett Poetzsch is the tech specialist?

    Yes. She was the tech specialist at 2013 TEB as well.

    It looks like they're just taking the accomplished content from a single competition - Chan and Hanyu's from GPF 2013, Javier from Euros 2014, etc.

    Mirai skated last in Vancouver, remember? She wasn't a gold medal contender, but her performance was definitely memorable to me.

    It looks like they selected the last major competition skated by each of the 6 men.

    Yeah, I realize that after looking at it closer. But I admire the NYT for doing it.

    Certainly an unusual graphic. I don't think I've ever seen a program layout graphed/displayed in such a way before.

    Interesting how they used shading/colour, size and relative height to indicate jump difficulty - e.g. the quad 'circles' are darker (colour), higher, and larger vs. the triples vs. the doubles vs. the single jumps. Even within the set of triple jumps, it looks like the 'circles' decrease in size as you move from Axel, to lutz, to flip, to loop, to salchow, to toe loop.

    I wonder if the designer based the graphic on a general knowledge of skating, or if they used the Scale of Value (SOV) Chart and based the size of the 'circles' on the relative point values assigned to each jump? If the latter, they definitely deserve a gold star for research!!

    I hate the skating order, I agree that excitement wise, reverse order would be the best.

    Funny anecdote from the german stream (between a lot of bla, they sometimes add very interesting infos). Katarina Witt sometimes visits the commentator booth and talked about how she talked to Anett Poetzsch, who really has to work hard, because she does get lost in the performances (as a fan), to concentrate on her job as a technical specialist. I thought that was very cute.

    Interesting for Yuzuru Hanyu that he is doing a 3A+2A sequence instead of 3A+2T that he did in GPFinal.
    (base value; second half of program)
    3A + 2A sequence = [8.5+3.3] x 0.9 x 1.1 = 11.68
    3A + 2T = [8.5 + 1.3] x 1.1 = 10.78

    Very interesting. Can't wait to see that.

    Is anyone going to sticky this? It's less than 2 hours until the start of the FS!

    If Jeremy tries to go for another quad in the LP, I don't think I'll be able to watch.

    At this point, he should just attempt a quadless LP like he used to back in the day:

    3Lutz
    3Axel+2toe
    3flip
    x2Axel
    x3Axel
    x3Lutz+3toe+2toe
    x3Salchow+2toe
    x3loop

    Interesting layout.

    I just want Jeremy to leave it all on the ice today, quad or no quad.
