    Who will be the last six LADIES to skate their LP?

    Here is a list of hopefuls. If there are others, just add them.

    Cynthia Phaneuf
    Miki Ando
    Susanna Poykio
    Onda?; Suguri?; Ota? - pick one if any.
    Carolina Kostner
    Julia Sebestyen
    Shizuka Arakawa
    Elena Liashenko
    Sokolova?; Volchkova? - pick one if any
    Irina Slutskaya
    Joannie Rochette
    Jennifer Kirk
    Sasha Cohen
    Michelle Kwan

    A. Pick only six whom you think will be in the last group to skate.

    B. Pick another six whom you think will be in the next to last group to skate.

    C. From Group B, add an asterisk to make your TOP TEN.

    D. Your choices may be listed in no particular order.

    E. If you wish list your beyond 12.

    This is not easy. - Joe

    My last six to skate - Slutskaya, Cohen, Kwan, Arakawa, Ando, Rochette.

    My next to last six - Liashenko*, Poykio*, Suguri (if she skates), Sebestyen*, Sokolova (if she skates), Phaneuf*

    So many others but that's the way I see it.

    Joe.

    Last Six: Kwan, Irina, Sasha, Diva, Rochette/Julia, Fumi

    Next to Last: Ando*, Kirk*, Julia/Rochette**, Susanna, Sokolva*

    Last 6: Irina, Kwan, Shiz, Joannie, Fumie(if she makes it) and Julia S.

    next Group: *Poykio, *Sokolova, *Cohen, *Miki, Kostner, and Liashenko

    That was really tough, this worlds is completely unpredictible. My predicted final 6 is based on the season thus far, and whose programs are really well adjusted for COP.

    I'm sure I'll get mine all wrong...

    Edited to revise my lists!!

    So if I wanted to manipulate the skate gods, I'd put my faves in the second six. Then I'd be wrong, and they would all end up in the top six.

    Final group: Kwan, Irina, Sasha, Shiz, Fumie, Sebestyen

    Next to last group: Rochette*, Kostner*, Ando*, Poykio, Liashenko, Sokolova

    This assumes that the top 6 do well in the QR, and do very strong SP's. But...the ice is slippery as we all know.

    The fun part about this exercise is it sure points out how exciting this competition could be!

    Doggygirl, I was supprised you put Sokolova in last group instead of SA. Then I read your reasoning. I have to agree with you.

    But no way SA's SP will fall out top 4, then it comes down to QR which is the LP that SA had the problem all season. But still I would put her in final group instead of Ando.

    My final group would be:
    Irina, Sasha, Rochette, Arakawa, Sokolova, Kwan.

    Who is Volchkova? The 3rd Rusian girl VV? She is not in this Worlds I believe. Rusian only has 2 spots this year.

    I didn't know Piseev picked anyone but Irina yet so I put both Elena and Vikka but the poster should pick only one of them.

    Also the Japanese third skater is unknown to me also. I think it is among Fumie, Onda and Ota and how they place in 4CC. While I appreciate Fumie, I adore Ota.,

    Final six: Slutskaya, Kwan, Cohen, Rochette, Poykio, Arakawa

    Next six: Ando*, Sokolova, Sebastien*, Suguri*, Phaneuf*, Liashenko

    Mine are definitely in no particular order. It was a hard choice. Arakawa has not been skating well, but her programs are expertly COP designed and she is the reigning champ. I think Slutskaya and Kwan would have to fall on their faces several hundred times to not be in the final six. Likewise, even if Cohen flubs a jump, the quality of her other elements will carry her through. Rochette is on a roll and the international judges are taking notice this year. She should have been considerably higher last year. Phaneuf's last two outings have not been confidence builders, but I think she will have it pulled together enough to be in the top 10 at worlds. Ando or any of the other Japanese ladies are more than capable of surprising.

    Last 6

    OK, I know the theory is that the judges are supposed to judge what they see on the ice that day... but I think where things could go either way, they are influenced by past events. Therefore, I put Susanna Poykio in the final flight. There are judges who saw the Europeans and a going to give her better marks this time around to avoid that kind of embarrassment again.

    I'm also putting Shizuka Arakawa in the final flight. Even though she has not been skating well this season, the judges don't want to say "Oh, maybe we wrong last year".

    Irina Slutskaya & Michelle Kwan would have to not only fall, but fall over the wall and not get up before the judges would fail to put them in the final flight.

    Joannie Rochette is going to get good marks because there are so many judges who saw or read about Canadian Nationals.

    And, finally, perhaps this is wishful thinking: Jenny Kirk is going to pull one out of the bag. She's endured criticism by going to Worlds when she didn't finish 3rd at the USA Nationals and I think she's out to prove her detractors wrong.
