It's all such a crapshoot that it's appropriate that they are holding the meeting in Las Vegas
CSG doesn't have a good grasp of how the fields for any given GP event are chosen. No host has complete control over the skaters for an event unless that host magically gets first draw in every round, which is statistically unlikely to happen.

Josh can threaten Kovtun all right, but if I was Kovtun, I'd be looking over my shoulder for another young Russian man...if the improvement we've seen already from Artur continues and his head gets into gear, he'll trounce Kovtun.
