It's really a hard decision, discounting Istanbul (not Because it's not European, mainly just to make the choice easier for me). I think it's
1) London
2) Paris, it seems obvious but the Eiffel tower is at least as iconic to the skyline as the Shard. And arguably the most beautiful skyline object in the world.
3) Frankfurt, everytime I see that skyline it's like Atlanta's twin brother. Unique in Europe.
4) Rotterdam, has the same multicluster thing going on as London and Frankfurt and a great setting as well.
5) Warsaw
6) Madrid, the four towers are great and all but the older financial district and the historic skyscrapers on the gran via are just marvelous. Definitely underrated.

Forgot about Moscow, either 2/3 or 4. It's that close!

I believe Milan is pretty underrated, it is most definately already in the top 10 European cities for skylines / in fact it should reach the top 5 as soon as the u/c Citylife project is complete, but hardly see I anyone quoting it, unless they are Italians. With all due respect for Madrid *City I visit yearly and I love / I do not believe the 4 massive towers in the outskirt plus those smaller buildings in the centre make a top 10 European skyline. Same valid for beautiful Vienna, and also for my favourite city in Europe, Berlin. I would definately see Milan quoted in the top 10 list in a realistic and obecjtive vision, but then again most people did not visit half of the cities they are quoting, so I understand the gap due mostly to misinformation / skyline are not static and updates should be taken into account but it is difficult to follow up a continent-wide update for everyone.
Anyway here is a pic taken by Meteoforumitalia from italian forum from Milan's catherdral view image hosted on flickr

Well I'll say that's pretty tall
even if it might not be in the triangle
