    I think Lou Marsh and Lionel Conacher are the biggies. Then there the different media picking their own - CBC, SportsNet, Postmedia, etc. 3 more days to go.

    Is there a Golden Skate Skater Of The Year Award?

    "I don't necessarily want to top what I've done,'' he said.
    I am glad he is taking this approach instead of trying to add another quad and hit the 300 mark. This season he needs to be conservative and avoid injury. Save the best for the Olympics!

    His new Ex number is a keeper!

    Well, Kurt says Patrick is the best male skater he's ever seen. And he's seen 'em all.

    Patrick may be the best male skater Kurt has seen, but he isn't the best male skater I've seen....That's Kurt.

    Patrick agrees.

    "First of all, Kurt doesn't remember what he says," Chan said with a laugh. "He may regret saying that. Maybe it's a good thing but I don't even think I'm at that point yet. As much as these guys tell me I'm at that point ... I could never compare myself to Kurt. I'm telling myself every day, that's what I'm working to. I'm still working on it, I'm still working for that point of being a showman, not just being a competitor. As much as people may tell me I'm one of the best, it's still not enough for me."
    Give the man-child some time. I think for the short time he's been on the scene, he's demonstrated a range and versatility already. Just look at his programs from the recent two years. Kurt's artistry really shines after his competitive career and he has had such longevity, which I'm not sure Patrick is going for. So I'll enjoy whatever he brings while he's at it.

    Don't worry, SF. It's going to be fun waiting to see how Patrick will grow, and I'll be thrilled if he becomes as good as his potential suggests. If one loves skating, it's always a wonderful thing to see someone new who turns out to be amazing. When Yagudin came along, none of us said, "Oh, dear, there's no room left at the top. We can't go encouraging this guy." We just said, "Wow!" And after Yagudin, there turned out to be room at the top for Takahashi. The more the merrier!

    Of course, Kurt's still the unparallelled one for me. Probably now and forever. I suspect that Patrick will be all that for you in the years to come, SF.

    How many of these Athlete Of The Year Awards are there in Canada?! Patrick is cleaning up this year!
    I thought the media, journalists, press etc voted for the Lou Marshal award? And now they have their own award? Isn't that kinda redundant?

    Simply delusional, MM. Everyone who is anyone in skating knows kurt will never be surpassed by Chan or any current wannabe. Seriously, me thinks there has been a little too much rum eggnog over the holidays, Mr math!
