    Let's just say, Evan has less commercial value than both of these former Olympic champions :lol:

    Yes. He's more in the Alexei Urmanov range. He did his best work on that one important night, but I doubt that any of his performances are on anyone's "I'll Never Forget" list the way that, for example, Yagudin's Man in the Iron Mask is.

    I'd agree that Evan or better to say his olympic win won't be as remembered as Yagudins or Plushenkos... but hey, I don't even think that's mainly his fault - if someone says 2010 Olympics, I instantly remember this awesome, awesome ladies event!
    Lovely ladies with lovely performanes... the men's event as a whole couldn't stack up at all. In 2010 it was definitly ladies night

    OMG. Everything Yagudin did in the 3 seasons leading up to the Oly was phenomenal. Loved loved loved his programs, jumps, power and artistry.

    I prefer Evan's Carmen in 2006 and 2007 to Yags' MITIM. I liked Yags' Gladiator more.

    I am delighted for the half serious skating fans of Europe and Asia! As for the U.S., I will try an experiment. I will ask the next 50 people I meet if they can name the last four Olympic gold medalists in men's figure skating.

    As the last tour in the U.S, Stars on Ice, is soon to become extinct, the U.S is irrelevant for a professional skater anyway. So who the U.S doesnt know or knows means nothing to ones chances of a touring career.

    mao asada's Triple jump during the last three seasons, rate of success



    10-11
    3a 1/8 3lo 7/8 3lz 0/4 3f 6/12 3s 3/4 3t 0/2

    11-12
    3a 0/4 3lo 7/8 3lz 0/4 3f 10/12 3s 1/4 3t 2/2

    12-13
    3a 0 3lo 8/9 3lz 0/3 3f 4/9 3s 1/3 3t 1/3

    I think she is really strong in 3LO
    rule changed after olympic season,
    It is a good thing for her that the basic score of loop is increased (2lo +0.3/3lo +0.2)

    and loop is also a only jump that yuna can't

    Actually Man in the Iron Mask was pretty forgettable as a program.

    I agree. After Anissina/Peizerat, Yagudin's MITIM pales in comparison, even if it was brilliantly skated. His Winter short program however is arguably an "I'll Never Forget".
