    Comparing 3 Top Male Skaters

    Please, no arguments about placements. Just compare and contrast if you will.

    Watch Adam's spins. And to me he looks the most Senior and secure of his skate.

    Watch Michal's feet. Looks to me like better than anyone else in Seniors.

    Watch Artem's high and distance jumps. Best I've seen of all Russian potentials. Who is his coach. That didn't look like Mischin.

    ^^No comment, just thanks for the links, I haven't seen the SPs before - Brezina's 3A reminds of the old Russian 3A technique...

    I think that Artem had the most the most "it" factor out of the three.
    The blond guy had so many of Jeff Buttle's mannerisms, and could have been enjoyable, but I am getting VERY tired of Sing, Sing, Sing.
    I have to disagree that Adam looked the most mature. Besides his very Morozov outfit, i feel that his skating is juniorish. If he can't land that triple axel, he won't go anywhere as a senior.
