I noticed this topic today on another forum. I thought it was an interesting one. Who would be your picks for best skaters of the quadrennial for each quad from 1995-1998 until today. Here would be my choices.
1995-1998: pairs- Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze, men- Stojko, dance- Gritschuk & Platov, ladies- Lipinski
1999-2002: pairs- Berezhnaya & Sikharulidze, men- Yagudin, dance- Anissina & Peizerat, ladies- Slutskaya
2003-2006: pairs- Totmianina & Marinin, men- Plushenko, dance- Navka & Kostomarov, ladies- Arakawa or Cohen
2007-2010: pairs- Shen & Zhao, men- vacant, dance- Virtue & Moir, ladies- Kim
2011-2014: pairs- Volosozhar & Trankov, men- Hanyu, dance- Davis & White, ladies- Kim
Where I am guessing we will see some disagreements:
1995-1998 pairs: there will probably be a variety of choices from Kazahkova & Dmitriev, Shishkova & Naumov, Woetzel & Steuer, Eltsova & Bushkov as well.
1995-1998 ladies: will probably be split between Lipinski and Kwan with the odd Chen choice.
1999-2002 ladies: will probably be split between Slutskaya and Kwan.
2003-2006 pairs: will probably be a few that go with Shen & Zhao.
2003-2006 dance: will probably be some who go with anyone but Navka & Kostomarov.
2003-2006 ladies: will probably be some who pick Arakawa, some who pick Cohen, some who pick Slutskaya.
2007-2010 and 2011-2014 pairs: Savchenko & Szolkowy will probably get some picks for both quads.
2007-2010 mens: god knows who people will pick here, probably a bunch of different choices.
2011-2014 ladies: some will probably pick Kostner or Asada as well.
2011-2014 men: picks will probably be split between Hanyu and Chan.
