    I vote for other. These ladies are all over the place. Last season no one was talking about Kaetlyn Osmond. I'm not ruling out the oldies such as Kim, Kostner, and Ando either.

    I would also throw Zawadski into the mix even though she is as slow as molasses. Her jumps have survived puberty quite nicely. Some of her uber petite contemporaries have yet to pass that test.

    I think Asada put allher eggs in the triple axel basket and now that she is getting older that strategy isn't working for her.

Even Tuktamysheva might if she keeps improving her presentation. Julia L. will be a star of the next quadrennial if she can survive puberty and has the right coaching to help her improve, but she has a long way to go and she isnt going to make her major senior event debut at the Olympics and win with her current skill set, no way.
    I agree with you (and it's not every time ).
    I was at TEB. And really, Lipnitskaya's skating is spectacular, but her jumping technique is questionnable, not much edges, not much speed. Her spins are amazing, but I'm not sure she'll be able to do this as well with 2 more years.
    But anyway, I hope she'll be as lucky as Sasha Cohen (and not as Caroline Zhang) about puberty !

    I've never seen Zawadski live. Is she really that slow? Slower than Czisny, for example?
    Actually, it would be great if people could rank all these skaters in terms of speed. Anyone faster than Kostner? Slower than Czisny?
