    Artur Gachinski is just nineteen, and has a better Senior record than anyone on your list. Much as I am partial to three of the five on your list, Artur is still above them all.
    A Freakin'-MEN to that! Gach---you GO you good thing. Looking forward to next season!

    Gachinski had one great moment at Worlds a couple years ago and since then has been a disaster at times. Right now it seems like a fluke what happened in 2011. Some of the kids on that list haven't even skated as Seniors yet.

    Worlds bronze was a product of Unpredictability. Look at 2010 to 2013 - only constant chan. You can have kozuka silver and then 11th. You have Ten 2nd from 7th. Takahashi 2nd to 6th and in 2011 5th after winning. was Sure gachinski was 3 to 18. But it's severe fluctuation from lots of people. Have to factor euros silver. The only constant has been Chan. Denis ten almost won! Worlds has a lot of flucuation now and "flukes" until they're not.

    What would be awesome to see is which men people were saying would dominate after 2010 back in 2009?

    Maybe Ten read this and it spurred him on

    ITA!!

    Gachinski has had his share of problems..but so have so many of these other very high level skaters..and come next season, one would be a fool to write ANY of them off! Remeber what happened to Weir in 2006-2007?? And when he was totally dismissed, he came back and won the World BRONZE the following year, after re-inventing hiimself!! This can and has been done before. There is SO much depth in men's skating nowadays..I simply cannot wait to see who does what and who goes where and where everyone ends up! It's going to be an incredible year!!!

    Sorry, didn't realise that a silver at Russian Nationals and a silver at Euros was a disaster...

    If he was 25 I could see your point. But he's 19. And just because Plushenko was a superfreak World Champion and Olympian at 19 doesn't mean they all will be.

    I he did it once though he could do it again. From what it seems, Gatchinski doesn't have the best head for competition, but he has gotten very good results a few times, and he is only 19, so it could be addressed and if so, he could do very well. I know D10 had injuries but I also thought some of his frequent meltdowns were due to being too anxiety prone to be a good competition and then last night - BOOM, amazingness. In the SP and FS actually. So you never know. Gatchinski does have a lot of talent and can do like 3 different quads already I think.

    That being said I still like Kovtun and hope the Russian Fed doesn't socially lynch him after this. He still has a lot of potential and seems to have a nice demeanor about him and a fire in his belly. I liked how he came out all fired up at the start of his FS last night. Now he just needs to work on the stamina, and not letting the Fed get to him. I think TAT will try to protect him though.

    Who? Too lazy to go backward to check pre 2010 posts.

    Now that Ten has proved himself, certainly he will be one to jostle for the 'super talents' title. One of my bet is still on Hanyu.

    We'll see. I have a feeling that some of the older Turtles are going to pony up during next season..and I cannot wait! Is it October yet??
