    Brian's and Jeremy's. Even if Brian does a lot of 2-feet steps, no-one's step seq get my attention as much as Brian's.
    Watched Yagudin's gold skate from Oly -02. The step sequences reminds a lot of eachother, and that may be the reason I love Brian's so much. (Yagudin was my first skating love and made me discover the sport)

    Jourbert has never kept it a secret that he not only admires Yags, but that he has no problem mimicking the Champion...

    it was VERY apparent after 2002 that Jourbert was outright copying Yags in look and skating, unfortunately Brian just doesn't get artistry quite like Alexei.

    I think Joubert has had quite a few sequences that were more of the "inspired by" variety rather than imitations. The similarity was more pronounced earlier in his career, though I'll allow there are bits in his Rise SP this year that are very Yagudin-like.

    That having been said, I think doing Yagudin-style steps is much more original these days than all the cookie-cutter "lean over your skates and flail your arms" stuff we're seeing, usually accompanied by jerky movements and considerably more two-footed skating than Joubert does (the upper body movement distracts the eye from this).

    Tomas, Chan and Joubert have all had some nice steps this year, and they're all doing their own thing, which is good.

    As a Johnny fan, I am pleasantly surprised that Johnny is among the most popular in every poll for a technical element so far. Sample sizes are still too small to draw any conclusion yet though. Let's see what happens in a few weeks.

    Daisuke Takahashi!! Also Braden Overett, even though he seems to have hung up his skates.

    Johnny is my favorite, Jeremy has done the best programs this year, but I voted for Jobert. There might not be any content in his short program footwork this year...but it works for me!
