Not sure Yagudin's comments of Chan are related to Plushenko's opinion of who should have won in London because Yagudin only spoke of the men's SPs in London. Besides, Yagudin mentioned Chan before in the context of the 2012 Worlds where he appreciated the complexity of Chan's program and the fact that he was the only one top skater attempting two quadruple jumps in the free skate, of which one in combination with a triple jump. I know Yagudin got stuck in an airport for eight hours at some point during Worlds this year and maybe he didn't have a chance there to watch men's free. But anyway, I've rarely heard Yagudin commentate on scores or results of competitions, perhaps he shies away from expressing his opinion because he admitted in the past that he was not very familiar with all the intricacies of the COP and that he would be interested to study the system in depth only if he could compete himself or decided to coach skaters. When he was asked about Vancouver for instance, he only stated that Plushenko was the strongest skater out there but that he lost because he probably ignored some rules.
