    Kwan was almost done when I started to follow skating, but I always found her boring. Well, not boring, but I failed to see something special in her that most of the people saw. Maybe I had felt different if I had been following skating while she was still on her prime.

    I think most of the top skaters are interesting. It is the lower ranked skaters with bad basics and generic music that make me zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    My vote would go to Eltsova/Bushkov... very good technician, but no much more for me.

    I saw nothing really special in Kwan's skating either. It seems a bit of an American myth that she was adored around the world.

    At the start of her career, she had some interesting music choices. But towards the end she was skating to the warhorses and really had no choreography.

    These two posts made me laugh. Who ISN'T boring would have been the better question to you.

    Honestly, Virtue and Moir. They are the type of couple who you can tell are good, but their programs and style are so snooze worthy that I cant remember a single memorable thing about them.

    Plushenko
    Weiss
    Urmanov
    Lipinski
    The Zhangs
    Lobacheva and Averbukh
    Navka and Kostomarov

    Yeah, I guess that is why she got such a lukewarm reception in South Korea last year 5 years after she had last skated.

    Honestly, just about every skater who ever laced them up has been mentioned in this thread. So what's the point? Your boring can be my charismatic.

    Well, there's nothing special for a (foreign) skater about having a "lukewarm" reception in South Korea, but however...

    I disagree with most of the names mentioned. This is all very negative.
