    Here are a list of hopefuls:

    Federick Dambier
    Johnny Weir
    Timothy Goebel
    Chengjian Li
    Min Zhang
    Ivan Dinev
    Andrei Griazev
    Stephane Lambiel

    A. Pick you 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 want to list those beyond 12 ok.

    My Last Six to skate - Plushenko, Joubert, Lambiel, Weir, Goebel, Li

    Next to Last Six - Lindemann*, V.D. Perren, Buttle*, Zhang, Griazev*, Lysacek*

    Whew! The top six was not that much trouble but the next were and then leaving out some darn good skaters was not easy. But that's the way it is at Worlds.

    Probably wrong with the Men's too LOL!

    Final group: Plush, Joubert, Lindemann, Lambiel, Li, Weir

    Next to last group: Lysacek, Sandhu*, Buttle*, Honda*, Goebel*, Griazev

    I really hope Timmy ends up in the top 6, but this has been a rough season. Same goes for Sandhu.

    This is REALLY hard to do beyond Plush / Joubert! If Weir skates clean he should easily be in the final group, but the podium might be distant if he goes without a quad and the other guys skate well. Hopefully Lindemann and Lambiel will skate better than they did at Euros.

    I agree with DG - the only thing I can say with any confidence is that Plushenko and Joubert will be in the final six, but I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that Sandhu will finally pull it all together, have his Paul Wylie moment, and make it there, too. The rest, I cannot say, but this could be a fantastic competition.

    I SO hope you are right about Sandhu (close ears now, skate gods!). I absolutely LOVE watching him when he is on. As with all the major competitions, I always hope that everyone skates well so we end up with a real exciting nail biter of a competition!

    Hard, hard, hard.

    OK, I'll give it a shot:

    Final group: Plushenko, Weir, Goebel, Buttle, Joubert, Sandhu (hopefully with Weir and Goebel in the medals! )

    Next six: Lindemann*, Lambiel*, Li*, umm... V d Perren and Lysacek, and, umm....Dambier? (Has Honda done much this year? Wasn't he injured?)

    Though I do think, besides Plushenko, it's up for grabs. Johnny has finished above folks with quads before, both under CoP and 6.0 (US Nats). Has Buttle? It is going to be a terrific event!

    My final group: Brian Joubert, Jeffrey Buttle, Evgeni Plushenko, Johnny Weir, Stephane Lambiel, Andrei Griazev

    2nd to last - Emanuel Sandhu, Kevin v.d. Perren, Stefan Lindemann, Takeshi Honda, Ivan Dinev, Chengjian Li

    Here are my picks to be in the top six:
    Evgeni Plushenko, Brian Joubert, Jeffrey Buttle, Johnny Weir, Stephane Lambiel, Stefan Lindemann

    Next group:
    Emanuel Sandhu*, Timothy Goebel*, Li*, Zhang, Lysacek*, Kevin Van der Parren

    Interesting exercise. I found the top six to be harder to predict. Skaters like Sandhu or Goebel are eminently capable of being in that final six.

    I'll go with Ptichka's pick:

    Plushenko -- absolute king now with Yag gone from amature

    Then no perticular order:
    Weir -- Because Judges like his style. Though I don't perticular like his style but I prefer him better than Buttle.
    Buttle -- Judges like him, he got props from Judges all season long so far.
    Joubert -- The only top guy who has the consistant quad to compete with Plushen, besides he beaten Plushen in recent European, must count something in Judge's eye.
    Lambiel -- My favorate. Just love his skating so natural musicality and dancing ability. I don't care if he is landing any quad or not.
    Goebel -- For the sake of being an American. His skating is not my cup of tea, though he improved a lot. But I do like his personality (as a skater he had been openly compliment his competetors, I rarely seen this in top male skaters). And this is his comeback season.

    Though I would like to see Li in there, but I doubt he'll make it, he might running out of the gas by the time of worlds come around. The Lindenman could be there too based on his skating ability (huge quad, energitic footwork with deep curves, and very good edge quality and dancing ability), but seems judges don't appreciate his line and posture, (and I don't like his body line either, lol).
