    Wow, these skater never even won an Olympic medal?? Amazing. Speaks volumes that I know who they are even though they didn't wen an OM. Anyway, there bit to "past" for me to judge fairly. My guess is that it's between Kurt Browning, Yuka Sato and Denise Bielmann but I'd have to back and look at their skating. But I'll rule out Butyrskaya and Eldredge. I never loved Maria all that much. She was elegant but also a tad awkward. And I thought Eldredge was dull.

    I voted for Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz. They were my favorite dance team prior to Belbin/Augusto.

    Kurt - he has definitely proven that the olympics aren't the be all end all, I'm sure he'd give a lot to have that medal that eluded him not once but twice, but looking at the career he has had since retiring from olympic competition in 1994, I don't think he needs it.

    Kurt easily, though I admit for some reason I actually paused to consider Matt Savoie

    Kurt Browning. I'm surprised he never did. He's one of the greats.

    However, Butyrskaya, Bourne and Kraatz, Eldredge and Sato are also in mind.
