    Not really, you can only be sure when the draws are done, a some skaters don't arrive until last minute

    How is it stronger? ARe you saying the Americans are stronger because Kaori isn't here and Evgenia is rumoured to be more injured? Ladies appears to have the least changes. I do believe the odds favour that with three American ladies and Osmond probably more vulnerable that there will be an american in the top5 but I am not so sure they are stronger than the olympics. One of them is prone to bomb - or make some big errors. But with the odds favoring Osmond not doing so well and Daleman in trouble the US shold hold on to three spots - unless the unspeakable happens and both Canadian girls bring it again and ditto for the Japanese then the real unspeakable could happen and the americans lose a spot. So if the US got unlucky something like Alina, Evgenia, Carolina, Miyhara, Karen, Higuchi, Osmond, Daleman, Tennell then there could be an issue.

    I'm kind of hoping to see "new" faces in Milan, so wouldn't particularly mind... but I do feel bad for her if it's true.
    Your comment is a bit concerning. Evgenia is just 18 and the suggestion you want a new face is a bit sad and concerning. She got replaced by a 15 year old. She is barely a woman. If you want new faces then get rid of Carolina not saying that is appropriate. she has had more opportunities and held up for years. Bump off Mirai for a new American but that is unlikely because Ashley is next.

    Italy is really going to benefit from all the withdrawls - that being in the home nation they probably will outperform medal wise Canada. Canada will drop a lot in the team event. Italy will probably win a pairs medal, dance and ladies. Asking Rizzo to medal is a bit much; he already squeaked out a world junior medal. (He is tough but I do think he might be ready for a not so good performance if not because he has competed a lot.

    Nothing so deep to my comment and definitely not “concerning”. I just have seen her “in real life” a few times before and wouldn’t mind seeing another skater. That’s it. I just enjoy seeing different skaters, too. However, whatever rumor there was, haven’t seen it pop up again, and it’s getting very close to Worlds, so hopefully she’s fine and we’ll get a spectacular Evgenya on the ice.

    No. I was actually hoping Averbukh was just exaggerating. I didn't want it to be true. Get well soon, Zhenya...

    So this means there will be no World Champions defending their title this year.

    Simple, it is stronger because I believe Wakaba is stronger than Kaori. Also, Finland is sending a stronger skater imho... otherwise, every single fav that competed at Olympics will compete here.

    edit: Now we learn Medvedeva withdrew... but still it's an amazing line-up for post Olympic Worlds.

    Anna Khnychenkova is not on the entry list anymore

    An update has been done to Pairs page tonight too but I am not sure which one. Is it Hase/Seegert removed from Subs list?

    got it but without Evgenia you are talking a gold medal contender so we are definitely weaker. And the odds are the skating will not be as good as per usual after olympics so might not be so strong other than maybe Wakababy.

    I think Tsurskaya would have had a much better chance at medalling.

    Great opportunity for Hubbell/Donahue to finally win a World medal. Perhaps it's a silver! I have a feeling Kaetlyn will have a battle with Alina for gold. After seeing her score of 150+ at the Olympics, I think she has gotten a new found confidence. Her score when skating consistently clean should have better score than Alina.

    no, Kaetlyn frontloads many of her jumping passes which are easier than Alina's anyway
