Patrick Chan tends to get very high PCS (and sometimes high GOEs) at most competitions. I'm a big figure skating fan, but I never skated myself. So I don't understand the intricacies of figure skating. Now I have a serious question to the experts here:

Are Patrick Chan's skating skills, transitions, etc. actually much better than the skating skills and transitions of all the other male single skaters in the world (like Abbott, Kozuka)?

I just want to know, because it's easier for me to accept his high PCS if he's really so much better than the others.
