Yes, that rhymed. No, it wasn't intentional. :)

If neither of those 3 ladies wins her second US title in January, who might win their first? Ashley Wagner? If she can skate a clean short program, maybe. Newbie Agnes Zawadzki? If she can stop skating shaky long program, perhaps.
My gut says Mirai Nagasu wins a second US championship this month. Not only do I feel she's pacing herself well this season, she also thrives under lower expectations. On the other hand, Alissa Czisny historically struggles in the favorite role. Of course, Rachael Flatt can never be counted out. Ever. How many times has she gotten the last laugh. So, what do you think will happen?
