Yes, they absolutely should push Hanyu over Takahashi. Hanyu is beyond a rising star; he's a future legend.
He has good PCS (which will only improve over time thanks to both improvement and reputation)
His TES potential is amazing. His jumps are much better than Takahashi's.
He's the most talented, complete 17-year-old since Plushenko. Actually, I think he's better than Plushenko was at 17. Heck, I'll say what I really think. I think he may be the best 17-year-old the men's side has ever seen.
Now, ice is slippery and the mind can play games, so no one can predict the future, but as he has yet to reach the best age for men, the future looks extremely bright. He deserves their full support.
