Which skaters do you want to come back for the Olympic season ?
I know maybe this won't happens but I really wish that thoses skaters comeback for the Olympic season, it would make Nationals competition more exiting to watch!!
So, I hope that some of thoses skaters decide to comeback, it would be amazing :
Cynthia Phaneuf (I wish that she comeback and finish her career in a good note, even if she doesn't make the Olympic team, I wish to see her happy of herself and her accomplishment)
Mira Leung ( For the same reason, like Phaneuf, I wish that she present herself like a woman who is proud of her career and finish in better way than she did)
Emanuel Sandhu (because he is a wonderful artist and I like his unique style on the ice)
Shawn Sawyer ( because he is such an amazing skater who own the ice and is entertainment)
Jeffrey Buttle ( He is capable of comeback, I think he has all his triple jump and his strenght is his artistry)
Sasha Cohen (A wonderful skater who can rival Yu-Na Kim if only she skate 2 clean performance in a competition, and also, she is the music when she skate, I miss her a lot)
Michelle Kwan ( She is beautiful to watch, I miss her skating)
Laura Lepistö ( Because I find that she quit figure skating to soon, and doesn't have accomplish her best. To me she could have been better in other season after that she won the bronze medal at the 2010 world)
What about us, which skaters do you want to comeback and why ?
I see a distinct A canadian flavour. Funny, I would love to see Mira Leung reach her full potential without her mother and just do it. i would love to see Emanuel Sandhu and Jeffrey Buttle. I actually think Buttle could comeback sans quad but it might be hard to medal unless he skated clean and others made a couple of errors. I do think Michelle kwan and Sasha Cohen are nice choices but less realistic (as though any of these are) due to age and where they are in life. But we saw some hope last year in Sandhu imagine with a real coach, real practice, etc. I would love Dubreil and Lauzon a team that sadly never got an Oly medal or world title to comeback and Johnny Weir just to create some fun. I would love to see him do battle on and off the ice with Evan. It would be nice to see Dube and Davison come back but that truly isn't happening.
Buttle is such an artist but I don't think he was appreciated enough - he was overshadowed wrongfully by Lambiel. I would love to see Sandhu skate for himself and leave it all on the ice - heart, soul and tear. Mira needs to show she can do it for herself; I wonder if she had the proper coaching and support what she could have done. Somehow she was a skater who got lost and never found her way. I wouldn't mind seeing Emily Hughes to see all that she can be too. Oh and Joannie Rochette - i would love to see her fight back and skate the skate of her life.
I don't think Sasha at her best, in 2006, could rival either 2010 or 2013 Yuna. The artistry is there, but Sasha would fall far behind on TES without a consistent 3-3 or 2A-3T.
