So many people are concerned that if MK isn't around we won't get 3 spots. Come on! The ladies field at Nationals is a deep one and just b/c jenny was a dud in this championship doesn't mean all of the ladies are like that. One trend I've noticed is that whenever a skater retires, there's always another lady to bring up the slack. There are juniors who will be seniors next year who might make an impact. Plus with the code of points, there won't be so much reliance on holding up the champion and the judges will just score what they see which will open the doors to new people. I think that COP might be why the field was so deep this year b/c you have a lot of skaters who feel that they have a shot with this new system and are stepping up.
