Oh, Danielian… I didn’t think about him, but if Vetlugin gets another chance and the other three clear TES it is going to be one hot CRF for Kovalev. I hope he does well.ETA: Now that I think about it unless they send Ugozhaev, Dikidjhi, Belyavsky somewhere in the next week or 2, or invite Danielian/Vetlugin to join the fun there are only 8 guys with minimums vying for 3 spots, realistically only 6 (I don't think they will send Zonov or Fedorov), the other guys with minimums have better things to do (Olympics) or haven't skated this season. So there still is a good chance to snag a spot but Artem needs to control his nerves.
I think they mean the team with substitutes (they have to send the entry lists to the ISU before RCF, don't they?).
