This was not an UPSET by any stretch of the imagination. They were essentially equal in score going into the freeskate. Evan has every quality and skill to be an Olympic gold medal champ. The scoring is so technical now that quad jumps can lose points on GOE (grade of execution) or triples can earn extra points on GOE---it makes more sense to do something well and get the positive GOE on it, then risk a fall and get nothing.
Pleshenko has skill, but Evan was clearly better all the way around.
