I think Gracie Gold and Ashley Taylor will have a huge rivalry. Mirai's comeback will fall flat and POlina E will be the third US lady. Johnny Weir will get into huge mudslinging with his estranged husband Voronov. There will be all sorts of scadalous allegations. Savchenko's new partnership will get off to a rocky if not improbable start. Julia L will have growth issues. LIza will get passed by Adelina, Elena R and maybe a resurgent Leonova or another young Russian lady or staved off by Julia. C and L will battle W and P and B and S while Russia's no. 2 and 3 teams will be a mess with the split of I and K and the no. 3 Russian team. Chan and Davis and WHite will not return. Abbott may go for one more season now that there are three US spots Fernandez will have a breakthrough consistent year; Hanyu will be Hanyu - may not really develop but still enough to be on top.
