    Create the Perfect Skater

    So, I thought this might be a fun off season game.
    Create the perfect skater in your opinion by taking aspects of other skaters skating. So for example, for me, the perfect ladies skater would have:
    Michelle Kwan's artistry
    Lucinda Ruh's spins
    Angela Nikodinov's layback position
    Sasha Cohen's Spiral
    Mao Asada's clean, quick jumps
    Irina Slutskaya's speed and edges

    Ok, I'll try a mens version:

    The perfect mens skater would have
    Johnny Weirs artistry
    Stephane Lambiels spins
    Daisuke Takahashis footwork and jumps (in regard of height)
    Nobunari Odas speed (and jumps in regard of softness of knees)
    Adam Rippons flexibility

    IA, but I would add Ilia Kulik's jumps to the list instead. His jumps were simply amazing...

    I'd have to have some time to think this one out but I have some very good ideas as to which I attribute to the perfect skater...
