    Who will jump quad in the Worlds after Plush has withdrawn?

    Nobody. They do not have to.

    You're probably right. Without Verner, Plush, Lambiel there doesn't seem to be anyone who's certain to attempt a quad at Worlds. Men that may be considering it:
    - Jeremy Abbott; he always said he goes for the quad because 'he can'; I can't remember; did he fell on it at the Olympics?
    - Adrian Schultheiss; landed a perfect one at the Olympics and really, really needs one to be in the running.
    - Daisuke Takahashi; was brave enough to go for it at the Olympics, but it looks like he may not need it to win here.
    - Takahiko Kozuka and Nobunari Oda; known to land it in practice once in a while; Kozuka attempts it in competition sometimes; doesn't look like they'll try it here; though Oda could use it to beat Takahashi and Abbott if the latter two leave the element out.

    EDIT: oh yeah; Joubert will definitely go for it (at least very likely); Bradley? I'm not sure.. He *did* break his foot!

    Haha, I would love that . Kevin Reynolds too, he does 4sal and 4toe right? Apparently Brezina lands really nice quads in practice, maybe he will go for it in his LP if he's striving for the podium?

    Yeah. Maybe not Oda, but Dai certainly will go for it in the free. As for the SP probably on Joubert, Bradeley and Reynolds will try them. Who will land them? Who knows? I Say Joubert and Reynolds will land at least one each.

    exactly. I think quite a few of the up and coming or outside-shot guys will attempt it to try to get an edge and push themselves up in the standings.

    maybe the quad should be worth a bit more ... but you do already get the extra points for it so I think quite a few guys will go for it.

    I hope Amodio and Brezina go for it. They are in perfect position to afford some risks. I was disappointed Florent didn't even attempt one in Vancouver as Sandra pointed out.

    Without Plush and an overdue Lambiel in the mix, one might think a quad is not necessary, but the remainder of the contestants are basically very close to each other in Tech. (Praise to be their styles are different.) However, to put icing on a cake of gold, if they all skate comfortably without a quad, they will still need something to show they are first place material. A number of the skaters have landed quads in some sort of competition, but as we know that a once-in-awhile Quad wont do. It must be right-on for a Worlds.

    I would recommend the following to attempt (they have more to merit if they do not land one perfectly): Abbott and Takahashi. Joubert is expected because he has landed quads more than 85% of the time. (I don't count practices.) If the three each land a quad, they will be the podium. The order of placement, I do not know. If one of them falters, he could be replaced by a number of Men waiting in line. Maybe Michal Brezina?

    Exactly. 2010 Olympics will be the last competition a quad was done. Now its all going to be spread eagles and ina bauers into triples or doubles. FUN!!!! So lame.

    Blah, Plushenko, during the time he took off after the 2006 Olympics, we have seen plenty of quads in competitions.

    Besides, I could not care less, LOL. I appreciate skaters who have difficult choreography, if they also have a quad, that´s a plus. Plushenko has just jumps, his spins are not really good, footwork is not what it used to be... His choreography is very lacking and boring, IMO. I will not miss his skating at Worlds..., but it would have been interesting to see, if the judges finally are judging his PCS the way it should have been done in Europeans and the Olympics.

    That's tad dramatic. There has been no dominant male figure in the last quad precisely because no one had a consistent quad or two combined with quality skating like Yags, Plushenko or even pre-2007 Lambiel.

    Nah, They would probably give him the same reputation marks as past Olympic and past World champion plus the Plushenko bonus, pretty much the same thing that boosted Lysacek's pcs since last year by 10 points. To put the things in its place cause well you have been saying it like everywhere.
    Plushenko was overscored in pcs. I m the first to say it. Now since the judges for all the rest did a great job, I suppose you believe Lysacek is a 82+ pcs material skater. In the planet where Takahashi and Lambiel should have 92 Pcs probably. Cause sometimes we look only in one direction...
    And you forgot about the Goe. It is the new trend.

    If you demand good job from all the judges, well, I demand it for all skaters and not for my non favorites only.

    They might start with Kozuka pcs to be better for example.

    All of you, who crying for quads MUST be an orthopedic surgeon, beeing affraid losing your job without making hip-surgery, and hip-replacement for young people, who used to be figure skaters!!!
    I'm a surgeon. PLEASE, stop to do it.I personally don't like to see consistent injuries, very short carriers because of surgeries, and lame young people, being 30-35, and not able to walk properly because of their former attempts of quad jumps in the training!!
    Please, have a bit more empathy and less attitude of "Panem et circenses"!
