Projected Grand Prix Alternate List

According to the ISU Grand Prix Announcement, the alternate list will include the following skaters/couples:
 Split couples/Return Skaters-Couples who were previously in the top 7-12 of a World Championship would be listed according to their best possible Season’s Best with the previous partner (they may be chosen for one assignment in addition to a host pick).
 Skaters in proper order of top 24 Season’s Best would be next.
 All other Skaters in the top 75 Season’s Best would be listed next.
 Selected International Competitions’ winners are placed on the bottom of the alternate listing.
  • U.S. Senior International 2013
  • Nebelhorn Trophy 2013
  • Ondrej Nepela Memorial 2013
  • Finlandia Trophy 2013
  •  Cup of Nice 2013
Some contradictory wording in the assignment includes:

"The alternate list needs to be worked through in ranking order for the top 24 ranked skaters/couples according to their Season’s Best. All skaters/couples of the alternate list will be grouped in top ranked groups of five (5) skaters, out of which the respective Organizing Member may pick one skater/couple for invitation."

In practice this was enforced last season by picking from a list of 5 regardless of top 24 skaters receiving a 2nd assignment first.  For clarity, I have bolded the group of 5 and italicized skaters in the top 24.

Skaters who do not meet the minimum score (choice of TES or total score) may meet the requirements at any of the above listed Senior B competitions.

Skaters that competed on the JGP last season and who's status is unknown for this season are also listed with junior next to their name.  Once they've competed at a JGP event, they will be removed from this list.

Note: This list is my interpretation of the criteria posted by the ISU and no official alternate list has been released.
