In my opinion the best in 2011 is Weaver/Poje. I fell in love with them!

In terms of domiance, it is a no brainer - Davis/White. They are the only team that has been undefeated in 2011 among the list of skaters. They are also the first US ice dance team ever to win gold medals at worlds.

Savchenko and Szolkowy for both their 2010-2011 programs and their 2011-2012 programs

Yes... they had the most variety and performed very well in almost every event.

I voted for Javier Fernandez, but Takahashi would have been my second vote.

If I could have voted by discipline I'd have gone:

Men: Fernandez
Ladies: Kostner (and considering how much I've disliked her in the past, this is saying something)
Pairs: S/S
Dance: D/W

Patrick Chan was undefeated in 2011 as well. D/W may be the only undefeated team of the year, but they aren't the only undefeated skaters of the year.

I voted D/W for their almost absolute perfection. Others on my list would be S/S, Dai, Jeremy and Mao. I also love seeing Javier's improvement under Orser, and Jason B's and Joshua F's rising star performances. Kudos to Nan Song and Akiko Suzuki for their accomplishments and to Hanyu for his prodigious talent.

Aside from his amazing skates at Canadian Nationals and Worlds Chan while "undefeated" b/c he's so "unbeatable" has put out some fairly sloppy performances this year. In that respect, "the team" of D/W have overall performed far and away much better than Chan -- no comparison.

I voted D/W because of the absolute pure joy I felt watching their long program this season. It never fails to lift me up. Their exhuberance and enthusiasm for this program just blows me away. I know they're technically good, but that's not what gets to me. This program transcends sport and technique, for me anyway. Thanks, Meryl and Charlie.
