Patrick Chan and Carolina Kostner should not be even considered.
They are typical IJS skaters.
The question is
Who CAN dominate.....
Her Les Miz would not beat any of Midori's LPs in 1988, 1989, 1990. Not to mention a bunch of GP events.
I don't think she can beat Shiz in 2004 either.
A few of Michelle's 7 triples LPs would beat her in both tech and artistic.
Best ever? Hardly. Best this year, of course.
yes kim is really nothing, she dont even do 7 triples, also she have wrong edge 3F, dont do 3R etc. Of course, her artistry is nowhere near to Ito midori or Michelle. her all programs were weaker than Michelle's or Midori's all programs, in artistry and technically. how bad...
I think many people were refuted Mathman's post enough. now I want to talk about other skaters
I don't know about Kim beating Kwan, but Midori Ito would surely do extremely well under IJS. She would be getting the biggest GOE's on her jumps out of all ladies, she wouldn't be penalized for figures. Btw, she actually does, she won Masters Elite this year in Oberstdorf .
I also think Mao would somehow benefit from 6.0, because she wouldn't be penalized for URs and wrong edges but on the other hand I don't know if the lack of consistency woudn't hurt her.
It's like saying Ekaterina Goordeeva could dominate Women's Singles because she skates well, ignoring the fact she doesn't do all the triple jumps.
My contention is that Chan would fall less without the strictures of COP.
Under 6.0 he might have fallen less, but by the same token he might not have worked to develop his eye-popping edge skills.
I don't know if you can say for sure that Chan would be more consistent if his programs were less busy and we'll probably never know for sure.
Midori Ito would be successful whenever she skated except when figures were worth more than 30%. I will never forget the look on her face in 1990 after she skated the second figure and realized the glaring error she had skated and then traced.
Skaters who could IMO:
Gordeeva & Grinkov
Totmianina & Marinin
Shen & Zhao
Eldredge (would have been even better under COP)
Virtue & Moir
Torvill & Dean
Klimova & Ponomarenko
Slutskaya (even better under COP)
Yu Na Kim
Skaters who definitely could not:
Sarah Hughes (would have been nothing under COP)
Kwan (would have done well under COP in her prime but nowhere near as well as 6.0)
Chan (would barely get on any podiums under 6.0, his LP from Worlds this year would have placed about 9th under 6.0)
Sale & Pelletier (would not have done well under COP, especialy with her weak jumping and their quite simple programs in general)
Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze (would have struggled under COP to get the needed TES too)
Anissina & Peizerat (love them but think they would have struggled under COP to do as well, although perhaps not in the era they were in with weak and overrated teams who would have been nothing under COP like Lobacheva and Fusar Poli)
