Angela Nikodinov was mentioned in another thread today, which prompted me to look at her spectacular free skate from US Nationals in 2001. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGsMDXLyXxs&feature=related Watching this reminded me what was great about the 6.0 system (and what is lacking in IJS). You would never see a program with this apparent simplicity or fluidity. Nikodinov's layback alone is worth the price of admission. Yes, the marking system makes the judges more accountable and this breakdown allows skaters to work on their weaknesses. However, a lot of programs today look like they're attacking the ice like a vegetable knife on a chopping board.
