    would't agree more Oxade21, the return of Plushy and Lambiel has at least ensured quad combo in sp, which was absent from the competition for a long time. with yuna scoring 210 points without triple axel and with missing a jump (Make it two because women have one jump less in their Lp), i wonder whether present crop of men could actually beat Yuna.

    ^ ITA; skaters that interpet with there face always seem to get more points than skaters that skate with their actual body eventhough this is athletic sport; Figure Skating is one of the few sports where facial express is as important as what your body is doing.

    they do exist, but they have a problem of consistency. The above mentioned men either don't do quad in sp or have serious problems when they do it sp. If these men where jumping things to their potential i wonder whether like of Plushy would have retuned.

    I stand corrected. Gosh, I think I even remember hearing about this hip but then I forgot.

    Regardless, it's good to see him back on the ice, and I see that his hair style has also not changed.
    Perhaps...but I do wonder if he would lose that much of a competitive edge. Haha! I noticed his hair, too!

    I have just watched Plushenko, Kozuka, and Weir's SP on Youtube. The first impression:

    Amazing come back for Plushenko. He 100% deserved to be first. I am a little too sensitive about the flailing arm now which made me dislike his SP choreography a little. But no matter what, he gave me the chill and goose bumps. I admire him in many ways. I'm happy for him.

    I like Kozuka's SP, sophisticated and beautiful. But to beat Plushenko? No way, not a chance.

    Johnny is Johnny. I think we have already seen all he can do by now. So that's what he can do. I still like his skating. It gave you an unearthly beauty, doesn't belong to anywhere. It's purely beautiful. But he cannot compete. Just enjoy his skating while he is here.

    He had FAR better spins and better presentation. Why did he not deserve to win? Plushenko doubled his Lutz, so that takes away from his technical advantage in the jumps.

    he covered the lutz with big Goes in the the other two jumps.
    But i would be fine with Kozuka first in Sp cause he was just awesome, his sp is maybe one of the best this season along with takahashi.
    His lp is not so powerful, something with the music is wrong, it doesnt climate, and I hate he wears two size larger shirts, he looks small that way. Only judging by the program, best Lp is Amodio;s by far, the man is an artist, his program is great and works the audience and he is really having the best choreo!
    By the way did Johhny decided to do the plushy way in Lp..?First 4 jumps (i think) in a row?
