    Yuzuru

    Javier
    Denis Ten if he can start doing quads regularly

    It's hard to say... obviously right now both Yuzuru and Patrick(if he continues) have the edge, but four years ago no one would have betted on yuzuru to become an olympic gold medalist... I personally don't think that both Ten and Liebers will leave much of an impression, so Iwould say that the ones who RIGHT NOW could try to challenge the former two for the gold (in worlds as well in the olympics) are in no particular order Maxim Kovtun, Han Yan, Javier Fernandez and Jason Brown (if he gets a quad), other people that could become contenders are IMO Farris if he get some consistences, Nathan Chen, Bojiang Jin, Adian Piktev and Shoma uno (if he finnaly becomes able to land his jum and he ups his TES) if their passage from junior to senior is smooth...

    I think the next Olympics will be between Yuzuru Hanyu and Han Yan

    I think the men's is reaching a really exciting time where no one man will dominate, but several will fight. Yuzuru Hanyu, Han Yan, Max Aaron, Jason Brown, Joshua Farris, Artur Gachinski...the wealth of talent and excitement in those six names alone is overwhelming, and they're just the surface scratch.

    Too hard to say.

    For all I know Boyang Jin could come out in a few years and land the quad lutz that apparently he's been landing cleanly in practice now...No one expected Hanyu bursting out with Chan beating technical four years ago.
