    I agree with your assessment, but I think he is perceived to be a journeyman by the majority of people, particularly on the World Championship stage where he hasn't had the most success of his career. IMO, he is a master of his craft; I'm fully aware that not everyone sees him the same way I do though.

    I'm really flabbergasted to hear this! Such a view doesn't fit the reality of his skating at all, IMO. Even before I was a fan, I never thought of him as ordinary in any way. Let's hope this weekend will open some eyes!

    On another note:
    I'm hoping for great skates by Dennis Ten and Misha Ge. Go, Kazhakstan and Uzbekhistan! Also Christoper Caluza (go Philippines!) and Alex Kam and Kim Min-Seok (go S. Korea!).

    I would love to see Abbott, Chan and Takahashi skate clean and their best and may the best skater win.

    You know, at this point, I wouldn't doubt that one bit. I expect a repeat World Champion this year.

    It's what some people wouldn't like to see, but they will see.

    Museksk8r should watch closely to see if Patrick will come in 11th as wished.

    That's the most unlikely thing to happen...............

    It's a WISH thread. Sheesh! If that's what Museksk8r wishes to see, that's his/her business.

    Exactly. I want Chan in 5th place but I know it won't happen.

    It's not even that I "wish" for him to finish 11th; it's that I like so many of the men and I don't want to see the same one person (Chan) win everything in sight. To me, that is not good for the sport and I hate that kind of predictability. I'm a fan of all 11 of these men to varying degrees.

    We have all seen what finishing 5th at the Olympics did to Chan. What monster would a Worlds 11th create?

    My wish?
    Abbott
    Kozuka, Verner, Takahashi
    Rippon

    The Reality?
    Chan
    Takahashi
    Fernandez
    Song

    It's a frustrating thing that Abbott implodes or semi-implodes at Worlds every time. I enjoy his skating.
