Ladies: I will miss Medvedeva at worlds, but hope to see her going strong next season!
Men: same as above but Kolyada
Pairs: M & D now, M & D forever, M & D until the end of time lol I'm a bit crazy when it comes to this team
Dance: K & O, always underappreciated imo

Just to be even-handed and balance out my massive Russian skater fandom a tiny bit, I will say that I loved Stiegler-Stiegler and Silverstein-Pekarek and wish both teams had been around longer

I'll always miss Elvis. He was a competitor with nerves of steel and he was true to himself as a skater. True, he never was willing to point his toes and did limit himself artistically. And while I don't really agree with his notion of 'masculine' skating, I love that he brought martial arts to the ice. I wish other (more other?) skaters would do the same.

In thinking of Elvis, I'm now thinking of Todd Eldridge. His 1492 at the 2001 Worlds remains one of my favorite programs of all time. That's a piece of music I'd like to see used again in skating.
