    Who do you miss the most

    Of all the skaters who retired after the SLC Olympics, who's skating do you miss the most?

    You can pick more than 1 option.

    Who has made figure skating not feel the same, since they retired?

    Well, I don't really miss any of them, because that is pretty much the cast of Stars on Ice. So we can still see them performing -- better than ever!

    I miss both Alexei and B & S in eligible skating.

    Thank goodness! But I still wish there were more "serious" pro competitions for them - a "pro" Grand Prix series. I know we've had that discussion before, but I can dream, can't I?

    My picks:

    Pairs: B/S - I wonder if they would have stayed eligible for four more years if that scandal in SCL had not occurred?

    Men: That was difficult - I miss Alexej a lot, but on the other hand, I don’t think he could have done any better: he fully realized his potential and won every major title one could win in his eligible career.
    I'm most missing Sasha Abt – I really wish, it would have been possible for him to hang on until Turino, especially with the major splatfest we’ve seen here at the mens’ event. It might have been his chance to really shine!

    Dance: Lobacheva/Averbukh - However, despite I’m missing them a lot on the eligible scene, I’m very happy about the shows they are organizing in Russia, I simply love them! And with having had the chance to watch a few of them live, I might be even quite satisfied with their decision to turn pro.

    What's Russian for 'emptiness'?

    I'd say Anjelika Krylova & Oleg Ovsyannikov,although with the comments I've been hearing about his weight,perhaps he would have made further programs look absurd.

    I miss Bereshnaya & Shikeralidze, there is no pair in amateur that compares to them at the moment.
