It will be a very tough decision as to which U.S. pair does the team event (i’m assuming one will do both segments); the season’s-best scores are only .13 apart. Several months ago, K/F looked like they were clearly ahead. But the 2nd GP was much better for C-G/L, who continued their momentum by skating 2 strong programs at Nationals. On the basis of that momentum, i’d go with C-G/L.

What I find interesting is that, while sometimes you feel strongly about one pair or skater being clearly better than the other, in the team event it doesn't matter that much. The reason is that while there are, for example, three pairs or skaters who would definitely place between the two pairs (or skaters) in question, they may not be in the team event at all, therefore there is no difference in which you choose.

Just a general observation not entirely related to the post above.

As for CG/L and K/F, I was looking at short program scores and here is some data (only international events):

Most recent SP score: 70.75 CG/L vs. 66.44 K/F
Average SP score: 64.25 CG/L vs. 69.78 K/F.

I too would choose CG/L for the team event.
