Predictions: NHK Trophy 2017


I would not be surprised if the competition has started already by the time I’m writing this. It has been a busy week and I need to go to bed, and soon. Redux version of predictions now. Names on page, and here we go.



Without Yuzu, this roster is so ????? After my disastrous predictions from Cup of China last week, I feel like I’m just taking a random stab in the dark at this point.

Gold: Jason Brown
Silver: Sergei Voronov
Bronze: Michal Brezina


Gold: Evgenia Medvedeva
Silver: Carolina Kostner
Bronze: Satoko Miyahara


Silver and bronze may be reversed depending on which Stolbova & Klimov show up – the 2014 consistent team or the hot mess of the previous two seasons.

Gold: Wenjing Sui & Cong Han
Silver: Ksenia Stolbova & Fedor Klimov
Bronze: Kristina Astakhova & Alexei Rogonov

Ice Dance

Tessa & Scott really have to prove that they can lay it down and get the scores on non-home ice after Papadakis & Cizeron got that record total score in a rink not located in their home country last week. If Virtue & Moir fail to improve on their scores at Skate Canada, I would say that P&C are on their way to being Olympic Champions already.

Gold: Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir
Silver: Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue
Bronze: Anna Cappellini & Luca Lanotte

Praying for Yuzuru’s fast recovery!
