    John Curry was already in my choices since I love his pure skating.
    But after watching his Scheherazade Exhibition at 1976 Olympics, he is not only in the top 5. He is out there, on his own planet. I love him !

    Tomas Verner once he starts skating clean. I have this theory that if he can become consistent, he will win all sorts of titles.

    My list must start with the man who first made me love the sport, and then those who helped my love for it grow. The next two spots are difficult, but if I am honest with myself these are the ones who continue to keep that love alive.

    Dick Button for years of commentating and for an amazing competitive record, including innovation.
    Gary Beacom, for being like nobody else on ice, ever.
    Robert Wagenhoffer, for being the best pro skater ever.
    Toller Cranston for adding the Drama and Costumes to men's skating (and also for The Ice Show)
    Rudy Galindo (for excellence and doing interesting stuff in pairs, men's and pros. Not to mention guts.)
