The exhaustion is real, people. I have spent the entire day talking about how tired I am and I will do so again if I don’t keel over and sleep. Keeping it real simple like I did with TEB – names on the podium. I’ll hopefully have time to spell out my thoughts a bit more before the GPF. The roster here is fairly strong and hopefully that’ll make the predictions a little more straightforward. Though you never know. Ice is slippery, after all. Now, predictions!
Looks like they built up good rosters everywhere else to water down this one.
Gold: Yuzuru Hanyu
Silver: Nathan Chen
Bronze: Jason Brown
Possible spoiler: Mikhail Kolyada
They may try to give this one to Miyahara if she doesn’t UR too much.
Gold: Anna Pogorilaya
Silver: Satoko Miyahara
Bronze: Maria Sotskova
I’m not sure if Duhamel & Radford can be defeated this season with so many of the top teams injured or still working out the kinks in new partnerships.
Gold: Meagan Duhamel & Eric Radford
Silver: Cheng Peng & Yang Jin
Bronze: Xuehan Wang & Lei Wang
This showdown will happen sooner than expected… At the moment though, even Tessa & Scott admitted at the beginning of the season that they have yet to earn the title of “rival” with P&C.
Gold: Gabriella Papadakis & Guillaume Cizeron
Silver: Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir
Bronze: Anna Cappellini & Luca Lanotte
Who do you think will make it to the GPF? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
