One thing cannot be argued I believe and thats Kwans consistency. I don't think GP events really mean anything in the grand scheme of things. Witt, Manley, Thomas etc rarely competed in them anyway. The first GP event wasn't until 1973 with Skate Canada, and the GP final in 1996. When Kim came along both of these events had been around for at least 10 years, so comparing GP's doesn't really hold merit against the older skaters. I don't think we can truly place Kims final legacy until she retires (which is presumably after Sochi).
