I can understand that but I think it's unfortunate too.
And I still think it's crazy to think Salome wouldn't beat Hughes' Olympic LP hands down in a face off.
Delete. Wrong Thread.
and I also loved Butyrskaya. I was so excited when I got to see her skate live--she just has so much presence. I cannot tell you exactly why aside from that presence, but watching her also brings me joy, and that is all I need to know
also, just my opinion, but I want to add that I do not think that marbri meant to belittle anyone, though I can understand why that comment was interpreted in that way. I think marbri wanted to point out that our confusion at PJ's list does not really justify calling her names. and we know PJ sometimes looks at these boards...I am just hoping she does not stumble upon this thread (even though I think the majority of the posts are really interesting).
she said Yagudin was on her list
I like PJ's top 10 men.
Crazy about sports!
He may be setting the pace for Sochi and be really talented in all levels but Chan is just premature!
Hughes in the top 10 is the biggest joke ever though. Hughes wouldnt make my top 50, maybe not even my top 100 if I went through all the top skaters in history. Hughes above Kwan and even Slutskaya, hahaha. SLC was just one event, and she had to skate out of her skin to beat those two skating their worst. Slutskaya would have even easily won with her 2000 and 2001 Worlds performances, which werent even her best and where she lost to Kwan, but still would have been enough to have beaten Hughes "performance of a lifetime". Kwan owned Hughes like her pet mule on the whole, 9 U.S titles to 0, 9 World medals to 1 World bronze.
I'm not sure whether Orser, Boitano, or Stojko would make my top ten.
And Chan needs a few more seasons to qualify for greatness IMO - though he is heading in that direction.
