Who is the weakest link? Use whatever criteria you want.

Still can't believe Plushenko got the boot. Lambiel for me this time, again.

My criteria is gonna go by looks, so Takahashi gets the boot.

Takahashi. Lambiel has more World titles, a higher Olympic medal, and 2 GP final wins to 0 for Takahashi.

I think Takahashi is the clear weak link here. All three are, to me, quite provocative and artistic, and lovely to watch, but Takahashi has by far the weakest list of achievements.

Lambiel. Takahashi may have the weakest resume, but based on overall performances, he still ranks better. Takahashi should have won Worlds in both 2010 and 2012. And while Lambiel has a higher medal color at the Olympics, his 2006 Olympic performances weren't good at all. He was just lucky to win a medal in an utter splatfest.

I also prefer Takahashi's style. I found Lambiel to be sloppy at times, and his Four Seasons program, in particular, was a mess.

At least Lambiel was a hot mess

Since Plushy left last round, I decided to take advantage of the "no criteria" and voted with my personal likings.

:confused: He did win in 2010.

And there goes the purpose of voting Plushy off. The only reason why I voted for Plush was that a face off between him and Yags was pretty predictable. Apparently not even the combined power of Lambiel and Takahashi can stop Yagudin, I was kidding myself anyway when I thought it could be close. Still, he gets my vote :D

Unfortunately had to vote for Takahashi again. I think that he and Lambiel are pretty equal, but I just love Lambiel even more.
