    Farris' double-bracket entry not count for you?

    Andre Rogozine. I think there are others. Some Ladies do spread eagle into 2A.

    Matt Savoie, Ilia Kulik, Takeshi Honda. (Honda's jump layout in the SP in 2001-02 was 4T+3T. 3A out of spread eagle, and 3Lz out of steps. )

    Hanyu. He's also done a spread eagle into a one footed back counter entry to a 3A+2T hands over head (into the second half of the program)

    I'd say Hanyu's signature moves are his 3A's in general. Difficult entries, insane combos, and its all into the second half of his programs. Plus his 4T+3A+3A+3A If Zayak rule wasn't in affect, he'd probably 4T-3A his way through his entire program even with the sequence deductions.

    Hopefully this isn't too off-topic, but could someone link me to what is considered Kurt's best performance of Casablanca? I've only seen the Olympics version (I know, shame on me), and while I named it as his iconic program, it had enough technical flaws that I didn't fall in love with it.
    Below is a link for the best "Casablanca" I could find w/o too much digging. It's the 1993 Worlds; maybe by this time you've found it, too. Although it's way better than the Olys, it still isn't perfect (no falls, though ). He 2-foots a 3Lutz but his big beautiful opening 3A makes up for it. For me, the best part starts around 4:30 w/ "As Time Goes By." And that white dinner jacket...be still, my girlish heart!

    I'm not a fan of guys doing Ina Bauers (yeah, yeah, call me sexist) but absolutely agree that Paul Wylie did some great ones!

    It's still one of my favourite Ilia Kulik moves. And Josh's beautiful spreadeagle and his beautiful 3A will go so well together!

    Am I really the first to mention Jason's Riverdance? I know it was only last season, but that program and especially that Nationals performance will not be forgotten I'm sure.

    Some signature programs:
    Michelle Kwan: Rachmaninoff SP
    carolina Kostner: Bolero? (and, as her signature move, the 3F+3T+2Lo at the beginning of her FS, even if she didn't land it clean a lot of times!)
    Jason Brown: as TMC said, Riverdance!
    Jeremy Abbott: Muse FS
    Savchenko/Szolkowy: Pink Panther FS (and then SP )
    Yu-Na Kim: Gershwin FS
    Virtue/Moir: Mahler FD (the one they'll be remembered for)
    Patrick Chan: maybe Rachmaninoff SP? Or POTO?
    Daisuke Takahashu: probably Blues for Klook

    Shawn Swayer uses his flexibility to perform the most spectacular Y and I spins, as well as spirals and Cantilever.

    I agree that it will be what most people remember right now (until Rohene's next masterpiece anyway!) but it's actually not my favourite long program of his. Liebestraume tops my list, followed by Nessun Dorma, then Riverdance. But I guess that's just because I'm a fan.

    I think Jason's Russian split is definitely his signature move, and the Y-spiral into the 3Lz (he actually did an I-spiral into the 3Lz in Liebestraume for a while). Also I love that dislocating hip spiral at the start of Riverdance.

    If we're talking signature programs, Max hasn't yet outdone Tron.

    That's actually a 3-turn into a rocker and then change of edge, which is still quite difficult.

    Javier Fernandez does a rocker entry into his 3A, with a choctaw and waltz jump to spread eagle prior to it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_K9zFHe8U1o

    Kovtun also does a counter entry leading up to his 3A. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIwK1zrJYEI

    Of course, none of these are as difficult as Hanyu's counter obviously, since he goes directly off the turn up into the axel with no change of edge or stepping from his right foot to his left foot.
