Thoughts about the Dance Grand Prix Assignments
-Pechalat/Bourzat and Bobrova/Soloviev will both compete at Cup of China setting an early battle for Olympic bronze medal. The same could be said about Cappellini/Lanotte and Ilinykh/Katsalapov facing at NHK Trophy
-Ilinykh/Katsalapov have an awful schedule, having a spot at NHK Trophy and Trophee Eric Bompard the week after
-Weaver/Poje are somehow advantaged because they have a shot for getting two silvers or a silver and a gold medal in their events.
-Both Cappellini/Lanotte and Ilinykh/Katsalapov will face Virtue/Moir and Davis/White in their events, so that is almost impossible for them to earn a gold medal.
-Chock/Bates have room for establish themselves against Bobrova/Soloviev, Weaver/Poje and Pechalat/Bourzat
-Grand Prix Final predictions: Davis/White, Virtue/Moir, Bobrova/Soloviev, Weaver/Poje, Pechalat/Bourzat. The last spot will be contended by Cappellini/Lanotte and Ilinykh/Katsalapov.
