^ I think kwanatic values positioning over speed when it comes to evaluating spins.
I value speed/centering slightly over positioning, but all of them are important.
Regardless of who has a reputation for better spins, it's surprising which skaters with a reputation for being good spinners made mistakes at the Olympics. Zijun Li at her best is a terrific spinner--but she got a level B (basic) spin in the SP at the Olympics, and lost numerous levels in the FS. Ashley Wagner got a level 2 on her flying sit in the FS. Mao Asada botched her flying camel spin in the FS (first position was totally wonky) and I'm surprised she didn't lose a level on that. She also lost a level on a spin in the SP. Kostner's final combo spins in both her SP and her FS were not well done, period. Kim's layback this season was the weakest it has ever been, but she had better speed on it than Kostner and she didn't drop a level on any of her other spins.
