    Dick Button for his competitive career (2 olympic golds, 5 world titles, 7 time US champion ) and technical innovation: he was the first to land the double axel, the first to land a triple jump (triple loop) and the first to do a flying camel

    OOPS! I left out Jeff Buttle. Can the admin correct the mistake and add his name?

    He is weaker than everyone you included on the poll anyway, other than possibly Wylie. You definitely made a good poll.

    I pick Dick Button since he was so far ahead of his time, and also for his other contributions to skating.

    You also left out Michelle Kwan. Now that is a much bigger mistake, as a much stronger contender she would have most likely have won the poll!

    I'd probably include Toller Cranston before a couple of these guys.

    Between Browning and Button for me.

    You are absolutely right. I should have included Toller Cranston. Even though he did not win a world or Olympic gold, his impact on the sport/art has been phenomenal.

    Cranstons legacy on the sport >>>>> Lysacek or Eldredges impact on the sport, that is for sure.

    I voted for Browning but I think that Chan can beat him in achievements.

    Dick Button :respect:.

    Browning: 4 world titles and a long & successful pro career
    Chan: 1 world title and a lot to look forward to, but it hasn't happened yet.

    It's too early to say Chan will beat Kurt in achievements. The odds are in his favor, but unexpected things happen.

    ^ exactly, and browning of all people is the proof inthe pudding! Whoever would have thought in 91 "not only will Kurt not win an ogm, but he won't even make the podium!"
