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...

leave no stone unturned
Midori Ito opens up with a huge 3 axel
Shizuka's crossovers between elements
Alissa's combo spin starting with camel-layback-camel-sit-y spin
Angela's 2 axel
Sasha's russian split
Maria Butyrskaya's camel spin
Michelle's CoE spiral
Joannie's 3 loop*
Lucinda Ruh's flying sit
Yuka Sato's footwork
Shizuka's Ina Bauer
Tonya's 3 salchow*
And the very lady skating this perfect program is Kiira Korpi.
