I've loved him since seeing his Chocolat program in 2003. It's been incredible to witness a skater with his talent and passion grow and mature over the years. I think Stephane has spoiled me forever as far as men's skating is concerned. IMO no one skates with the combination of musicality, movement quality, freedom and spirit that he does on the ice. He's truly a dancer and an artist at heart, and with beautiful skating skills to boot. I can't put into the words the joy his skating has brought me. Every generation of two there would come a skater that will be remembered for doing something truly special and taking the sport to a different level. For me, he was THAT skater of this generation. I'm so grateful that we have all the memorable performances by him on video to watch over and over and over.
