It's too hard to make a definite order, so here are my top 10 in no particular order. Well, it might end up being kind of chronological based on years of competition.

Klimova & Ponomarenko
Grishuk & Platov
Usova & Zhulin
Duschesnay & Duschesnay
Anissina & Peizerat
Krylova & Ovsiannikov
Belbin & Agosto
Bourne & Kraatz
Virtue & Moir
Navka & Kostomarov

Honourable mentions:
Denkova & Staviyski (at first I had them on the list, but then I realized I forgot N&K!)
Delobel & Schoenfelder
Davis & White
Lobacheva & Averbukh
Fusar-Poli & Margaglio
Drobiazko & Vanagas
Dubreuil & Lauzon

Good grief, I was just going to say that!

These are my top 3 for their creativity...

1 Denkova/Staviyski (I lurve to death their 2006 worlds Adagio FD)
2 Duchesnay/Duchesnay
3 Krylova/Ovsyannikov (1999 worlds African Dance FD was just brilliant)
...
4 Grishuk/Platov
5 Anissina/Peizerat
6 Virtue/Moir

The rest...I'll have to think about.

Of course I had to jump in :)

1. Klimova/Ponamerenko - duh
2. Grishuk/Platov - double duh's
3. Anisina/Peizerat - triple duh
4. Krylova/Ovsiannikov
5. Navka/Kostamarov
6. Usova/Zhulin

This is where it gets a little more difficult:
7. Virtue/Moir
8. Denkova/Staviiski
9. Bourne/Kraatz
10. Delobel/Schoenfelder

I left out the Duchesnays - yes I loved their routines...but the originality wasn't theirs, and they never looked to me like they truly mastereed their dances. Top 20 perhaps, but not top 10. Isabelle had a few scary Babs moments of her own IIRC.

Honorable mentions: Domnina/Shabalin, Rahkkamo/Kokko, Punsalam/Swallow, and Drobiako/Vanagas. Although they didn't appeal to me, Lobacheva/Averbukh could be very impressive technically too.

For the life of me, I can't see anyone placing Belgosto or Fusar-Poli/Margaglio in the top 10.
