I figured that with all the negativity going around the forums this week that this could be a healthy thing.

Say at least one thing nice about your least favorite elite skaters, and then leave it at that.

Note: this is not the "say something nice and then list everything bad" thread. Just say something nice! Everyone has good qualities.

I'll go first:

Alena Leonova looks lovely in her FS costume this year.

Elene Gedevanishvili- it's so exciting that a small federation like Georgia has such a good skater.

Evgeny Plushenko- I'm always amazed at how well he jumps, and especially at how well he lands jumps regardless of their air position.

Michael Weiss has a very good backflip.

Caydee Denney and John Coughlin are seriously solid, athletic skaters. I also love the "fish dive" in their exhibition program.

I loved Isabel Delobel and Olivier Schoenfelder's "Piano" free skate.


There. Now it's YOUR turn.
