It feels like we've had many threads like this before and often it turns into a bashfest of certain skaters but I hope this one doesn't.
For me, it's so difficult to list them based on looks alone because I'm one of the odd one's that is more attracted to charismatic cheeky personalities. So while I find some male skaters handsome there's no attraction because for some odd reason (only known to me) they turn me off, so not sure how to list. OK, listing the most "attractive" men from my own personal preferences and screw the rest even if they are handsomer (rest= the one's not on the list, is not my cup of tea...). Since you didn't really define "attractive", or clearified the rules, it could be the most "interesting person I'd love to get to know", or "physically attractive", or both if lucky, so...
Damn, I'm so strange. I can't even feel any attraction to Brad Pitt, or Orlando Bloom....the prettiest of pretty faces that everyone swoons over. Just pretty faces, no personality = boring. On the other hand I find Johnny Depp utterly attractive because he's quirky and different AND handsome. Another example is Adrien Brody, I'm attracted to him because he's got that charismatic cheeky personality, but is NOT really handsome. Oh well, I don't make much sense I guess...
The list wont be long!
SERGEI GRINKOV - the man was so beautiful in a put-on-piedestal-to-worship kinda way! Just because I adored them together.
Ilia Kulik - his somewhat timid personality is interesting, maybe not so much in a physical way, for me, but attractive nontheless.
Evgeni Plushenko - not handsome (the Adrien Brody syndrome...they even look alike!) but he's soo...interesting and has a charismatic playful personality that is very attractive, so yeah, definitely both here.
Stannick Jeanette - could possibly be swinging the other way, but he's got this voidy personality, that is very interesting and I'd love to get to know.
Ilia Klimkin - The voidest of voidy personalities on and off-ice, so yeah...I'd be in void heaven getting to know him. Wouldn't call him handsome.
Yeah, I know...I am weird!
There's a lot of skaters that are cutsie pies in a want-to-pinch-their-cheeks kinda way but I won't mention them.
But for me being handsome matters for about 4 seconds until I discover for myself if there's anything interesting to read there, if not, I move on.
Give me the Adrien Brody's and Johnny Depp's of skating than the Brad Pitt's anyday! weee, gods I need to go to bed!

There still is an active poll on this topic and from what I've seen, the results are not conclusive. Beauty is in the mind of the beholder.
A. Y. & E. P.: Tzars Of The Ice, Lords Of The Rink
I'd like to add Peter Tchernyshev to that list as well even though he is "retired...". Who knows how long it might last LOL.
I also think Johnny Weir, Alexander Abt, Anton, Kulik, Joubert, Plushenko (very good in most photographs I have seen), Hungbo Zhao, Todd Eldredge, John Zimmerman, and I also think Josef Sobavcek is handsome.
DEFINITELY in the mind of the beholder. This Dirty Old Lady would have the current hots for Matt Savoie if I were younger and singler. I wouldn't have said that a few years ago, but he's developed sort of a "different" hot look which I always liked in my younger singler days.
I also at one time thought Chris Dean was attractive.
Dick Button ion his day was kind of cute like a kid not handsome.
However the best looking are definitely Ilian Alexei Yagudin, Ilia, Peter T, Maxim S, John Zimmerman and Sasha Abt.
