    Battle of the Brians in 1988, hands down!

    1992 - for Paul Wylie's silver medal

    2006 was underwhelming for me. Plushenko was technically good but had about as much artistry and heart as a rock during the performance. IIRC, Lambiel and Buttle made mistakes.

    3. 1998- Stojko was never my thing, but he pushed to the end, and Kulik was flawless. D'Artagnan was a total surpise.

    4. 1994- Yeah, the elders blew up, but they all came back in the LP to do great programs. The medalists earned it.
    For me 2002 tops them all because all of the top 3 were so great but Yagudin really in my mind was incomparable. And the Brian Brian competition was fierce but the Plushenko/Yagudin one had more melodrama. And then Goebel being so amazing and landing three freaking quads is just the cherry on top.

    But now I'll have to go and rewatch all those other guys you mentioned from 1988.

    My favorite men's competition was 1994...you had the amateurs and the reinstated pros together...so much anticipation and shocking results.
