    Nope. Not even for Ivan Panin or Gillis Grafström. :p

    104 years after first winning the OGM in Special Figures in London, Nikolai Panin is still the reigning champion in his discipline. Even the Henies, Grafströms, and Rodninas of this world can't say that.

    If he goes totally bionic at some point, :plush: might have a ghost of a chance of meeting that standard, but I rather doubt it.

    Actually, what most people have said is that a skater's record doesn't necessarily have to be the key criterion, not that it's absolutely not the criterion. I think Yagudin's very impressive record reflects his talent and abilities, while Takahashi's not-as-impressive-as-it-could-be record does not reflect what he can do as a skater. So I give the edge to the guy who was a great skater and competitor, and whose results are commensurate with his potential. If others prefer to vote for Dai because they enjoy his skating that much, and are willing to overlook his inconsistency over the years, of course that's a legitimate view. Just not my view.

    Exactly, it's a matter of one's view, and I wouldn't want to impose mine on you!

    It's just an off-season poll, albeit a very entertaining one! :cool:

    Argh. I didn't want Yagudin to win this so easily, but worthy competitors would have been Plush and Chan. Against, Takahashi, I have to vote for him.

    Wasn't 'Taka' actually Takahiko Kozuka? At least I've read some posts where fans called him so. It seem that Daisuke is more often called 'Dai' (I call him that too from time to time).

    That's what I was confused with since I'm so get used to calling Kozuka as Taka but Dai's last name is indeed Takahashi, so;)

    Alexei will always be the best to me. He was so athletic and had beautiful artistry. Winter is a classic, the best sp ever imo.

    I love both but no question for me - Yagudin is the best ever! I am shocked Daisuke has 40% of the vote.
