    Also got to go with Yagudin. Why?
    1) I really like him--and his skating.
    2) It might have helped counteract some of the over-the-top Plushy-gushing that's been getting on my nerves lately.

    I voted for Shizuka, but I would've also liked if Margarita and Povilas made a comeback!

    Alexei all the way! Too bad it could never happen. Lord knows he tried multiple times, but his hips are too damaged.

    Alexei Yagudin, always.

    I'd rather he enjoy life now, though, since his hip implant was never designed to take the immense strain that eligible competition brings. At least I have still gotten to watch him perform in shows and with Valeria Lanskaya, which I greatly enjoy.

    1) Melissa G. and Denis P. Their story is so sad to me, as it seems they never got a chance to reach their peak due to lack of resources, not changing interests or lack of focus/dedication or whatever.

    2) An at-the-top-of-her game Kimmie.

    3) And as far as comeback in the sense of doing really well and improving internationally, not as in coming back from an absence, Caroline Z. and Carolina K.

    Those choices as being in the realm of possibility == for the true impossible dreams, yeah, I'd like to see a healthy Yagudin, and I'd love to see the Kween at her peak one more time.

    .
    True but they've carved out a great little niche for themselves in shows and the like. They are all OVER the place! I do miss seeing them skate on TV, but maybe with their recent contacts with Scotty and Brian (Boitano) and the like they'll get cast in a Disson show or two next season. I can dream anyway (though if Tanith and Ben stick together and go pro... there goes teh ice dance spot in shows)

    I do wish the fall/injuries hadn't happened at Skate Canada, though, they had a great momentum going into that season

    For me, no question Michelle and Yagudin, in an ideal world where both still had healthy, uninjured, 20 year old bodies. I like to dream good things.
