I’m waiting to see who gets invited to which events. No point in commenting further until that happens.

Updates on skaters who are injured / possibly retired / split would be useful.

Good point chuckie. I suspect we’ll get a better idea of what’s happening with the skaters who haven’t announced their intentions for the season when we see the names the federations submit for assignments, as well as in the responses to the invitations.

Lubov Illiushushkina has joined Cirque Du Soleil and will not be finding a new partner. IMO This is a perfect fit for her.

Katelyn Osmond will be sitting out the GP season as per the Canadian Press.

Interesting.

Kaetlyn's withdrawal from the GP leaves the seeds as:

1. Wakaba Higuchi
2. Satoko Miyahara
3. Carolina Kostner
4. Alina Zagitova
5. Bradie Tennell
6. Gabrielle Daleman

Obviously, Daleman will be Skate Canada's host pick.

With Osmond out, top seeds Higuchi or Miyahara might choose SC as one of their events. If that's the case, Skate Canada would be unlikely to invite Medvedeva.

I doubt Kostner will be in the GP circuit, but of course we will have to see.

Osmond has announced she will join a 26-city Thank You Canada Tour including Virtue / Moir, Duhamel / Radford, Patrick Chan, Elvis Stojko and more during October and November (the same months as the Grand Prix). She may run afoul of the ISU by doing the tour instead of participating in the GP. Plushenko tried to do something similar some years ago, and the ISU threatened him with sanctions keeping him from competing at Worlds. He had to back away from his plans.

If she does do the tour anyway, it may be that she is, indeed, retiring.

Dylan has an injury which apparently would have prevented show skating. Liubov made the best choice for her own ongoing career.

WEAVER / POJE will not compete in the GP this season, but will be at Nationals.

That makes STEPANOVA / BUKIN seed #6 and moves CAPPELLINI / LANOTTE up to seed #3---if they are competing in the GP. If C/L are not competing in the GP, the seeds would be:

1-3 PAPADAKIS / CIZERON, HUBBELL / DONOHUE, CHOCK / BATES
4-6 GILLES / POIRIER, STEPANOVA / BUKIN, ZAHORSKI / GUERREIRO

We should hear by tomorrow which country will host the GP vacated by China. And we should know no later than Friday of this coming week the full roster of the Grand Prix events for next season.

Mirai Nagasu has announced she will not compete in the GP this season, and will not continue to 2022. She might return for the remainder of the 2018-2019 season---or not.

Any word on Ashley Wagner? As the #4 US lady she should certainly get two GP assignments, especially with the #2 lady removing herself from the series. But I think we're all expecting Wagner to retire soon, if not immediately.

Has anybody heard any buzz?
