    OK, I was curious how many votes each skater/pair(dancing) team has gotten. So, I did it myself. Here is a vote count so far. I sorted by the number of counts that the skater(s) got.

    Disclaimer: This count might NOT be super accurate. I just counted it by reading all the posts made in this thread and included all the skaters specifically mentioned by each poster. I will accept all the corrections.

    Yuna Kim 33
    Evgeni Plushenko 20
    Davis and White 12
    Yulia Lipnitskaya 11
    Yagudin 6
    Michelle Kwan 5
    Brian Boitano 4
    Kataria Witt 3
    Gordeeva and Grinkov 3
    Carolina Kostner 3
    Irina Rodnina 3
    Stolbova and Klimov 2
    Evan Lysacek 2
    Shen/Zhao 2
    Gracie Gold 1
    Totmianina/Marinin 1
    Rachel Flatt 1
    Tatiana Volosozhar 1
    Timothy Goebel 1
    Jason Brown 1
    Dick Button 1
    Torvill and Dean 1
    Oda 1
    Klimova/Ponomarenko 1

    If it were this year's SP you'd be good.

    I'm not sure they made a single mistake on it the whole season? But avoid the FP like the plague....

    I think I would go with Torvil and Dean from the early 80's. I mean they were getting perfect scores, so I am pretty sure they would be reliable. Although I admit I am not their biggest fan, I would trust them to skate well and deliver

    Yagudin of course!!! He still performs well at Ice shows this year. What a monster.
    At first I think of healthy Plushenko, but he is not healthy now. Crying!!

    It looks like no one picks up Patrick Chan. I totally understand.

    Papa Putin will shoot you right after that.

    For the female skater, I would like Kwan.

    I might actually add Stojko to the list if we're talking consistency. It was pretty rare for him to mess up the non-axel and quad jumps, whereas some skaters would make silly errors on their easier jumps (Chan's double axel, Plushenko's 3S, etc.).

    I would think I'm safe after the first minute or two of a Plushenko or Chan program and then spontaneously drop dead in the final minute.

    Not judging...just thought Jeremy should earn his spot on the list.

    Plushenko pops a jump occasionally like Yuna but rarely splats the way Chan does on a regular basis. Especially if you're looking at Chan's performances when the stakes are actually high (which I assume skating for someone's life would be) it's like disaster after disaster.
