    Takahashi!!!

    I'm surprised he's not on the list. Wasn't he the first person to get a level four on footwork?

    I'm pretty sure he wasn't the first, and he definitely wasn't the last. Plushenko got level 4 at Torino (SP and LP, for the circular steps), Jeffrey Buttle definitely got level 4 at some point (2008 4CC?), and Carolina Kostner among the ladies. Not sure who else. I also don't know if that should be the criteria for judging excellence in step sequences; levels are really more about excellence in adhering to a checklist (just like so-so spinners would sometimes beat Stephane Lambiel on spin levels).

    I'm surprised Takahashi wasn't listed, though I would not have voted for him myself.

    Takahashi, particularly his sequence in his techno-Swan Lake SP last year. And I believe he was the first guy to get level 4 - at least that's what the commentator said. That would not, of course, included nationals.

    I am probably the only figure skating fan on the planet who did not like that program. But let's not go there - this is a positive thread .

    It is certainly possible that Takahashi got a level 4 prior to 2006 Olympics - though I'm not going to check through the protocols of all his events . Since I wasn't a fan of Plushenko's 2006 programs, I certainly wouldn't mind if someone else beat him to that first level 4, be it Dai or anyone else.

    Jeremy - his footwork is all involving and goes with the music
    Joubert/Yagudin - good for one type of thing/style, but so limited to that whole staccato River Dance type thing (not my favorite) though there's no questioning how it gets audiences 'excited'

    That's my vote too for all time and then comes Jeff Buttle. I love Shawn Sawyers' transition moves. He makes it look easy and everything just flows.

    I have to add Patrick Chan to my list after watching him skate at the Canadians and recently the Four Continents. He is quick and amazing as Kurt commented.

    Wow!!!

    I voted for Patrick, Jeremy, Tomas and Johnny.
    I think Jeffrey had the best skating skills I've ever seen but I also like loads of other ppl off the list : Alexei, Daisuke, Stephane, Kurt, Adam, Michal, Florent Amodio...too many to name.
