For me, everyone skating in the ladies event for the past several years has been pretty boring, except for an occasional good SP by Nagasu. Nobody has been able to hold my interest thru a free skate since Cohen (and even then, I'm not sure if it was the skating or the tension of waiting to see where she would screw up). Yes, I also found Kwan to be boring. I liked Yagudun. I wasn't that keen on Plushy's skating, but could never have called him boring. I didn't usually find Lysacek or Weir boring, but today's top guys can't hold my interest for long. Takahashi can at least keep my attention thru an SP. Pairs. OMG. What a wasteland.
