Actually if Hanyu wins worlds you will probably have to say he was the top skater of the quad, even results wise. He will have won everything there is to win (Olympics, Worlds, Grand Prix final) and Chan wont have. It is similar to Petrenko vs Browning the 89-92 quad, and none of Browning's 3 world titles were even controversial unlike Patrick's (although Patrick atleast won silver at the Olympics but basically by skating how Kurt did to come 6th ).
So Patrick is not neccessarily even going to be the most successful of the weakest quad of mens skating in history bar none, and that is even while garnering the reputation as probably the most held up and wuzgifted skater in history.
It would be good if Sadovsky can improve to challenge Nam. Having two highly talented skaters nudging each other on is better so there is 'shared pressure'. I love these two kids. Bodes well for Canadian men.
I actually think Sadovsky and Chen are two skaters who show more potential than Nguyen now, but as always in skating things can change fast.
Orser isnt a guranteed miracle worker for skaters
he didnt do wonders for Elene G
