    Igor Paskevitch was also a very creative skater.
    And I loved Sebastien Britten.

    I find Kerrs quite creative. And Khokhlova-Novitsky.

    I have met both of them, there is no way Dan is more annoying than Ryan. For one thing, Dan appears to have no ego.

    I loved Olga Markova and Ilia Klimkin too much LOL
    The mind of the performer is a very strange thing.

    Browning, as well.
    Stephane is too obvious, people are trying to come up with more original choices

    I meant purely in terms of their skating programmes. I'm sure they are both lovely people. Or not as the case may be.

    Dmitri Dmitrenko usually had very unique programs. He's gone into coaching and choreography but unfortunately hasn't produced any interesting work for other skaters, yet.

    Ughhhhh...

    The whole program is skated counter-clockwise. They're just skating around the rink and around the rink and around the rink.

    There is a lot of flailing but no actual skating ability is showed.

    I can totally understand why they were being dumped by the judges and no, not because they skated outside the box.

    I remember seeing some of their programs that I liked in the past but this was just awful. But then, most of pre-COP skating seems to me.

    Nothing interesting about her skating, other than her spins.

    Ivan Dinev and Stannick Jeannette! I loved Stannick´s Le Petit Prince program 2003. IIRC, the choreography was by Gwendal Peizerat.:ap1
    Dinev was : many times, he should have had at least one EM medal. He was sportive and creative same time, and a very nice guy. He also had some other assets

    Creativity is subjective (though I do recognize that it is possible for there to be standards that most people may agree on) and can be defined beyond technical difficulty, transitions, and the COP, as difficult as that may be to grasp.

    Sometimes the most simple things can be the most creative.

    There is great wisdom in those words.

    Yes. Are skaters (or their choreographers) being creative with the way they use their blades?

    Or with the way they use the rest of their bodies above the blades?

    Or with the kinds of images they choose to present in terms of music choice and costumes aside from the skating itself?

    If you're looking for creativity in one or two of the above, if you do find it you might forgive the skater being pretty conservative in the other area(s). Or if you don't find it where you're looking, you might miss other areas where the skater is breaking new ground.

    Of course, moves and style choices that were creative when the first skater performed them later become ho-hum years later after many followers have jumped on the bandwagon.

    Although I've only ever seen it once, Ilia's routine that used the bowler hat amazed me at the time of seeing it. The use of blade work way before cop was introduced was incredible. Forgive me for not remembering it, but I'm sure others will fill in the blanks, and possibly post a link. For me, that was creative.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.
