Gonna have to go with Slutskaya, even though I think she was great. No one has the competitive record of Kwan, nor the artistic power, and Yu-Na is an Olympic gold medalist who basically creamed the rest of her field (she's no Baiul or Hughes or even Ilia Kulik, who I tried to vote out before a non-OGM winner in the men's poll).

I voted for Kwan because I felt that her programs on the whole were pretty empty and she mainly used the music to carry her through everything.

Tough to eliminate Slute, since she certainly had longevity.

Obviously you have never watched anything between 1995-2001. :D

Slutskaya. She simply doesn't have the complete package. I would say she had the complete package with her programs for 2000-01, but that was it.

I rewatched Slutskaya's 2005 Worlds LP, and though it was an emotional program, I was shocked by how sloppy she was. Her program was memorable, but it certainly doesn't go down as one of the great progrmas of all time.

I don't see how you can put Slutskaya ahead of Kim, who has the complete package and can do difficult triple-triples, and skated the best Olympics LP in recent history. IMO, it goes without saying that Slutskaya should go before Kwan.

She did, but it should be kept in mind that it's an FSU poll. A popularity contest at that. Seen from that perspective, skaters like Lipinski or Hughes had no shot at all from the beginning. :shuffle:

Anyway, based on this final 3 I'd have to say perhaps Slute. Although I could make a case for Kim as well.

Yeah and I really only enjoyed three of those programs.

Voted for Yuna..

Kwan/Slutskaya Show down is much more exciting than Yuna /Kwan.

The game is ending with a fizzle it looks like. Slutskaya voted out easily this round, then Kwan crushing Kim easily in the finals. I expect if this was just after Vancouver it would have been closer between the two than the final round will be.

I voted for Yuna Kim even I like her more than Michelle or Irina. M&I's longevity are worthy and inspiring, IMO.

It has to be Yuna, I m way more emotional about Michelle and Irina. I think their skating was more sincere.
