    Now I get it. I could not remember starting a thread with that title and wondered if I had forgotten that I had started a thread .

    ITA. I was all for him taking surgery last season. But now come to think about if he can still land quads, there is no need take the risk. Who knows what would happen on surgery table. If it is successful he still need to recover. Things not broken don't fix it, just use it more carefully. Do less competetions, and with CoP in place he can work on other things instead of kept on pounding for the quads.

    BJ still has way to go to catch up with Plushen. He is in whole another level by his own. Plushen performs the others just skate.

    I totally understood why he didn't get surgery. We've seen in sports how long it takes to get back to where you left off after such a surgery. It's good and bad. I'm just hoping that he hold up til after the Olympics.

    I'm too. Not a big fan of his style (I much more prefer Lambial, Matt, etc.), but would like to see he win the OGM.

    Then that makes at least three of us! I feel as if he's already earned it, and sincerely hope his knee holds up so he can claim it with the skate of his life next year.
    He's not my favorite skater, but whether you like what he's doing on the ice or not, you can't look away.

    We feel exactly the same.
