THIS. Especially since people are throwing the 'old' card around when talking about Lysacek and Weir! Plushenko is geriatric by those standards..and I hope he's in top form, enough to clean up the ice with the others. If Chan skates CLEAN, I hope he does well. If he does NOT, I hope he is not given inflated scores and rewarded for really bad skating. Used to be, you almost HAD to skate clean to win an OGM. Now, you can Zamboni and still walk away with the top prize in international competitions. Failing Plushenko being strong enough to make the Russian team (If he can crawl, he will be there..the man is a TANK!) I want Gachinski to at least medal. Seriously. I want him to skate out of his skin this season, and if Plushenko cannot go, I want Artur as Russia's guy. And I want him on the podium. On TOP. I also would love to see Florent Amodio do well, simply because he's working with Alexei Yagudin, and I think he can DO this. He was precious at Euros in 2011. Bronze is up for grabs. Let's give it to Jeremy Abbott, just because he's a sweetheart of a guy.
