    I don´t miss any of the male or lady skaters in the above list or outside it... I do though miss Anissina & Peizerat and Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze. Generally I would say, that there always are plenty of interesting skaters competing and new ones to come onto the scene. Skaters come and skaters go, but the sport remains as exciting and interesting.

    Mathman is correct again.

    It is a little different then when they were competing. But we all still can see them thanks to Scotty Boy's continued efforts!

    Maria was putting a good one together in Ice wars - totally unfair match up, but 4 of my all time fav.s were there so it was good for that. Kurt was amazing!

    I miss Maria Butyrskaya - sad how career went downhill after a good season or two. She was Sasha before Sasha's time ;-(

    You can pick more than 1 option.

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

    Yagudin, because he didn't have a choice. Everyone else on the list did.

    Isn't that the truth. After the 2006 Olympics, I missed him more.

    Who do I miss? Wow there are too many to mention here. Shows how old I am and how long I have been involved in figure skating!!!

    My top favorites were not mentioned:

    Karen Magnussen - my figure skating inspiration

    Kurt Browning - It's great seeing Kurt professionally but he was an amazing athlete and competitor. I have been viewing some of his old competitive programs and he still takes my breath away.

    Toller Crantston - Well need I say more?

    Brian Orser - He is not even in the pro skates anymore. He is choreographing and teaching. Wow do I miss his beautiful artistry.

    Elvis Stojko - Elvis was the most focused competitor I have ever seen. His jumps were thrilling to watch and his determination to keep going even when he was injured was inspiring.

    Bourne and Kraatz - One of the most talented ice dance teams to grace the sport.

    Eisler and Brassuer - Herb and Fred - they were one of the most thrilling pair teams to watch.

    Underhill and Martini - Class all they way.

    Wilson and McCall - They made ice dance look easy.

    I am of course only listing Canadian competitors here, but oh well, I am a bit partial ya know!!!!

    Me too, and Ilya Kulik and Elena and Anton.

    As far as seeing "some" skate in Stars on Ice, I don't think B/S will be back next year. And Alexei will also skate his last year with them next year. Then we might never see them again *waaaaail*

    So does mean Alexei is retiring soon?
