1. Plushenko- 'Kami-sama' god as they call him in Japan
2. Takahashi- King
3. Lambiel- Ruler
4. Yagudin- I don't like the air positions of his jumps. His body to me is not inline while his elbows sticks out, making it seem sloppy at times, especially on edge jumps. Gets great height on jumps, always fully rotated quads, and with room to spare on 3A. His skills and presentation were not so much that it was better, but it was nicely packaged. Never won Russian nationals.... very likable attitude and passion.
5. Joubert- 6 world medals speaks for his longevity.
6. Weir- special skater, pure skating simply, breathtaking when seen live. Reminds me of Toller Cranston.
7. Takeshi Honda- 3 quads in one program! Another skater overshadowed by in the era of Plushy/Yags/Elvis.
8. Evan Lysacek- generic skating, nothing stands out about him. However no one can take away his work ethic leading up to OGM + WGM.
9. Patrick Chan- he's better than Jeff Buttle
10. Jeffrey Buttle- 3 time Canadian champ! World champ, Olympic Medal!!
