Pre-Season Figure Skating Survey

Hey all, I thought it would be fun to do some predictions before the figure skating season official kicks off. If you are interested in participating, please email me your answers at thebackstagebarbie@gmail.com. You can give me as much detail as you like. You can also omit answers to any questions that you don't feel comfortable answering. Also include your twitter handle and/or blog address so I can credit your contribution in the post. Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to a great season!

1) Which skater/team are you most excited to see this season in terms of new programs, choreography, and overall performance?

2) Who do you expect to make their biggest splash in their Senior Grand Prix debut? This can be a skater rising from the Junior ranks or a newly formed team.

3) What do you think about the new Grand Prix format?

4) Will Denney & Coughlin live up to their pre-season hype?

5) Which individual GP event are you most excited for? (i.e. Ladies at NHK, Pairs at TEB, etc)

6) Will we have a clear favorite for the national title in ladies, men's singles, or pairs at the conclusion of the Grand Prix season? If so, who will it be?

7) How does Evan Lysacek factor in this season, particularly if Plushenko returns to competition?

8) Who has the potential to beat Virtue/Moir or Davis/White?

9) Does it help or hurt Ice Dance as a discipline when one coaching team (Zoueva/Shpilband) dominates most of the competitions?

10) How critical is the 2011-2012 in the grand scheme of things, specifically looking toward Sochi?

11) Who will be this year's Alissa Czisny and come out of nowhere to have a stellar season?

12) I know it's not nice to think about, but who do you expect to bomb this season?

13) If the World Team Trophy does take place, (assuming US, Canada, France, Russia, China, and Japan compete) who will win?

14) I know we've debated this for years but I'm going to ask it anyway. Which 2 ladies, men, or pairs can earn a 3rd spot in their discipline for the US at Worlds?
