    What about Moir-Khohlova team?
    Or Khohlova-Scalli?
    Dream-team Moir-Silvershtein ;)
    But honestly i think M-V and T-D are both "Dream teams"

    Yes. After she skated with Arseniy Markov. And after Kulikova, Novikov skated with Olga Orlova.

    I loved Punsalen & Swallow's Olympic & World free in 1998. They were undermarked.

    I think they were. It was a really lovely programe. I liked it much more than Lob/Ave. I also liked Moniotte & Lavanchy's free that year.

    If OP had included 1988, I could list Wilson & McCall who are IMO a clear #1 or 2 of all time (depending on where you place Torvill & Dean). I loved loved loved this team. If not for politics, it would be interesting to see what medals this team could have won.

    I thought they were badly undermarked in 1998 which surprises me because I'm not a fan of them at all. But I would've had them 3rd in the golden waltz CD, 6th in the Argentine tango CD, 5th in the Jive OD, and 3rd in the FD. I'm not sure what the overall placement would've been though with my placements.

    I agree. I also was not a fan of theirs but when I first saw this at the Olympics I was really into it.
    It's strange when you watch skaters that you have never really liked before then they do a programe that you love & you look back at their other programes & start to warm to them.

    (Re Punsalen/Swallow) I agree...I never saw them undermarked but I definitely saw them overmarked. They were not a top 10 at Worlds team. JMO of course.
