    Interesting list from Vash. I definitely think Petrenko was one of the most elegant skaters before he went pro and Vegas. Here's two of my favorites from him:

    His LP at the 1988 Olympics, skated to Don Q. is one of my favorite performances. He was just 18 then, and you could see his natural talent and elegance.

    ITA -- in all the focus on the Battle of the Brian's, and the two great performances they skated, Petrenko's is often lost in the shuffle. I remember being gobsmacked by this skate at the time.

    Alexander Zhulin

    A lot of them have been already mentioned. I found Johny Weir extraordinary elegant before his transformation in the Diva Bottox he is now
    From today, probably Ten and Kozuka. And Katsalapov and Poje are wonderful as well as very handsome

    Another vote for David Liu. He skate like ballet dancer.

    Anton and Sergai are totally elegant as well.

    From the current generation; I see no one who have dancer figure and great line like these 3.

    Definitely agree!! I loved Alexander Abt too and Jeffrey Buttle. I have watched tapes of their skating multiple times and I never get tired of it.
