I don't think that Alicon will get citizenship. And their other team isn't very strong.
Hm, that might indeed help. And people are discussing how Sweden might give up its men and women singles spots, so Italy might actually qualify all four disciplines. (Sweden's Majorov withdrawing would mean Turkey gets a spot in Men's singles)

We currently have 10 teams qualified for the Team Event: CAN, CHN, CZE, GEO, GER, ITA, JPN, ROC, UKR, USA
Israel and Korea need to qualify their ice dance team to make the cut. Korea needs to move up 1 spot and Israel 2 in order for their ID team to be sent to the Olympics

Looking at the SD standings, it looks difficult for Korea and Israel. I think it means the Czech Republic and Georgia will both qualify four disciplines.

But the other team has the minimum TES. So they can send them. Like last time Israel sent a week dance team rather than Isabella Tobias/Tkachenko.

Israel isn't really in the running. The Koreans have a shot.
I don't think it's possible for either. Georgia is the better team there, so they will probably beat them (and I also want to see them more). Will be funny if Korea qualifies though, because then we get to see whom the KSU send for Pairs lol.

So the additional quotas should be used for Italian woman, German man and Ukrainian pair

So Japan is looking pretty solid for that bronze, or maybe even silver depending on if Nathan skates both programs.

Zhou versus Kagiyama or Uno in the free skate I don't think would be the potential difference-maker there, that'd be the margins between the pairs and maybe the women.

With their improved pairs, Japan has a chance to complete with US for the team silver. Coupled with Alysa’s no contest to the Russian and Japanese women and the uncertainty of Bradie’s shape, US could lose the silver.

I mean everyone has their days. Japan, Russia(Kolyada), and Canada(Messing) could all beat Zhou on any given day. And US could be as low as 3rd in Dance, out of 5…that doesn’t leave much buffer for pairs and ladies.
