Javier Fernandez skated poorly in the GP but was much, much better at Euros and said he plans to improve even more by Sochi.
Who are the top five best male skaters in the world and what is innthe tech arsenal of each? It seems that while we love an artistic skater, it comes down to quad and quad combos. What will Chan, dai, hanyu, javi Machida, Jeremy and Jason bring in trmss of difficulty. I ask one of the members like blades that know the men very well to lay out the difficulty. Who are the top 10 in world according to ISU rankings? If Chan and hanyu are best shots at gold or silver in either order, then who right now has the third best scores this year to look like a strong chance for bronze? Would it be Javier? or Machida? Despite a beautiful showing from Jeremy, he melts down in competitions. I don't believe he can replicate his Nationals. I hope I am wrong.
I would truly like to know who is the top ten, and who will be standing in top 6 after sp. The final flight, will be????
just opinions. Last year everyone said Chan would win even with falls, Times and opinions have changed...
When has Patrick Chan not won something? Are there other competitions that I'm missing? Every time I see him he wins whether he skates well or not. I've never seen Hanyu do much.
I'd be shocked if anyone else won. I think he's much more of a "lock" than YuNa, who hasn't been around for a while and could lose to Mao or Julia if she falls more than once.
