I imagine Gilles/Poirier will be assigned a SR. B to qualify for GP's, be given SC as a host pick, but don't know where a 2nd GP comes in?

Chock/Bates were given two GP's this year because of the split team rules. EACH was allowed a GP assignment due to their team splits (Chock/Zuerlein, Samuelson/Bates). Samuelson/Gilles qualified under the split team rules for one GP (Samuelson/Bates).
