7. Scott Hamilton (tie)
7. Evgeny Plushenko (tie)
8. Ilia Kulik
9. Kevin van der Perren (go Kevin)
10. Elvis Stojko (he's actually 11th, because of the tie, but who's counting?)

Same question I had for the Ladies.
Interesting that Kurt is still so popular. He's been around for some time and one of those great skaters who never got an Oly gold.
Interesting that Tim is up there and ahead of so many!!
Interesting Kevin van der Perren is on the list since I believe there are no other 2nd tier skaters on the list. He must be very popular in Europe because if you don't go to live competitions, you don't see him.

A little surprised that Scott is number 7. It seems from this list that there must be somewhat of a younger group voting. Abt?
Tim GOebel won a bronze medal at Olympics, big accomplishment for him, and had the skate of his life in last Worlds to the point many thought he should have won. He's very popular right now, especially among American fans.
It's not that surprising to see him there, although I'm not sure what his result would be if the poll was conducted 10 years from now on, for example. After turning pro (or even before that, if he doesn't manage to keep winning medals) I'm sure the result would be very different, but that's just me
