If you meant 'past 2006' why is Patrick Chan on your list?

Perhaps he got in under the wire by skating at 2006 Canadians?

Sorry, you are right. :lol: I sort of dont think he belongs there yet, yet I sort of think he does for his WR breaking performances last season. So he is a tricky one. He is definitely already a better skater than any of the Joubert, Lambiel, Lysacek, class are though, and a better competitor (despite the numerous falls at times) than Takahashi ever was.

When I typed that I was thinking of the 2007-2010 generation of top skaters which was very weak IMO. How else did we have this sudden return to quadless champions, even ones with mediocre artistry like Lysacek to boot. Thank god that quad of rubbish is over, and the rubbish has merely been transformed to the ladies for the 2011-2014 quad it appears.

No skater post 2006 belongs on the list at all IMHO.
It depends on what are your criterias. If we talk about quality, you can judge them in one year...Patrick Chan was already among the best ever when he arrived on the scene. He was really young and newcomer, but everybody said, already, that his skating skills were to die for.
