Plushenko boring? No way. His quads are amazing! So he doesn't have the transitions. Nobody's perfect. I wish we had the perfect skater--quads and transitions and musicality. Some come close. But don't count Plushenko out. I love figure skating and value each skater for his or her best qualities. This includes Rachael Flatt. She comes across much better live (I was lucky enough to be able to attend Worlds last year), and Miki Ando, hitting jump after jump in practices at Worlds (including her quad), whereas as much as I love Ciszny, I remember one of her practices where she fell on nearly every jump. I wanted to run out on the ice and hug her and tell her to stop. Sorry to get off point. I just don't like all the bashing. You can have a favorite without totally hating the others.
