    Readers' Choice -- Which U.S. skater had the best season?

    Check out this thread in Announcements (thank you, Blackrose):

    http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22187

    What skater or team do you think had the most impressive results last year? (I voted for Bebe Liang .)

    Yeah, Bebe Liang is the first name that pops into my mind, too.

    The said poll is a farce, I'm not wasting my time on it this year.

    I voted for Bebe, but I think Marai had the best year. She swept the JGP circut, got the highest SP score ever at Nationals and won the title, and medaled at the Junior Worlds. If can be argued that Caroline had a better year, she made the splash into the senior GP and had the skate of her year at nationals and got the silver at the junior worlds... also Racheal won the worlds... and placed second at nats... but really i think marai had the best year.

    While I am not voting in the poll...I would have to say Steven Carriere. He came up from juniors....he did very well in the Grand Prix series...at Nationals and at Worlds.

    Well, I voted my other email address for Samuelson and Bates.

    No, it's cool, because the winner gets the Michelle Kwan Trophy. This is the only popularity contest going where the most popular person is ineligible because she is too popular. They had to do it this way, so she wouldn't keep on winning the trophy 100 years from now posthumously.

    Impossible for Johnny Weir not to come to mind.

    For me, it was Rachael Flatt - Gold Medalist at Juniors. She was the least favorite among the favorite Americans to win that competition - but she did, Blanche.

    Hard to choose between Mirai and Johnny, but since Mirai won Senior Nationals her first year as a Senior (with a record breaking SP score) and then went on to win a silver medal at Jr. Worlds, I say she gets it!

    I voted Johnny Weir. Two wins on the GP circuit, a tie at Nationals for first and his first world medal.

    Joe, I am in total agreement with you. Rachel Flatt had the most successful season in my opinion and totally deserves the award. Coming in a close second are the pair team of McLaughlin and Brubaker imho.

    I voted for Caroline Zhang. However, if I had put some more thought into the non-ladies, I'd have voted for Belbin&Agosto. Weir would get my vote for best comeback of the year.
