But yeah, the judging in the short indicated that Slutskaya probably would have won if all 3 were clean, even though I feel she shouldn't have - but that's another discussion.
If all 3 were clean, I would judge them like so:
Short: Bute, Kwan, Slute.
Free: Kwan, Bute, Slute.
I feel Slute had a better shot at the title in 2001 since she had a better short program than in 2000 and even more clout after having beaten Kwan more times in 2001.
