    Sarah doesnt even come close to Baiul or Lipinski in greatness and those two probably would barely make the top 30 all time. So I doubt Sarah would make the top 50. She would probably be roughly around someone like Butyrskaya (or lower). Putting Sarah Hughes in the top 10 all time makes about as much sense as putting Ina & Zimmerman as a top 10 pair team of all time.

    PJ's pairs picks!

    I have to agree with her on the majority of the list (especially the top 3).

    What are your thoughts?

    Not exactly what I'd expected, especially the order of the top 3 (and putting B/S ahead of S/P - didn't see that coming). I'm not sure why PJ has S/S on her list; she doesn't seem to like their programs much - or, I think, to really get what they're trying to accomplish.

    It's a pretty good list, overall.

    She lost me at: 1. Barbara Ann Scott.

    Does the CBC force her to have X number of Canadians on the list?

    This list is ridiculous IMO.

    I'm curious as to who your #1 pick would be. Barbara Ann Scott definitely deserves to be on the list, regardless of what ranking, purely based on her merit and ability during her era.

    Edited because I cannot read apparently!

    I agree with her top 3 pairs just not necessarily in that order.

    Pj should have titled her pieces PJ's my-time (instead of all-time) top ten. A serious undertaking of this would require hours of reviewing exisitng vids and reading of history.

    It would, indeed, be a fantasy competition if Sarah competed and managed other than a last place finish. And what would this fantasy competition be like---would it include figures, short and long and would it be judged under 6.0 or whatever came before that or cop. Figures defeated quite a few of the skaters we now laud.

    Personally, her highest scores not withstanding, I don't think Yu-na is among the greats and she doesn't seem headed in that direction either.

    And why? I agree Yuna is not the greatest. I think she needs more world titles. But I'm curious to why she's not among?

    I clicked on the link for Underhill and Martini, haven't watched that in a long, long time. They were good. I always thought it was a shame they weren't able to hang around the eligible ranks a little longer.

    Mostly a good list. Valova & Vasiliev and Totmianina & Marinin both deserve to be in the top 10 though. Shen & Zhou also should be much lower than #4.

    What better way to retire from eligible competition after such a devastating loss in Sarejevo than to go out on top in your own country. Their worlds win is my favourite pairs free skate ever.

    They were able to capitalise on their win with a fabulous professional career that lasted 13 years, too.

    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Barbara Ann Scott was an Olympic, World, European, North American, and National Champion. She was also the first lady to perform 2Lz in competition. She deserves #1.

    The rest, well whatever floats your boat, but I could have easily left off Yu-Na or Sarah Hughes and replaced them with the inventor of the layback spin or camel spin, who is also the lady that contributed the most to the technical elements of skating.

    PJ did it only because Sarah is a dual citizen

    She lost me at the Duchesnays, and no Krylova & Ovsiannikov but you include Davis & White? Really?! Denkova & Staviski, Usova & Zhulin, and even Navka & Kostomarov should've been here before a few towards the end of the list.

    LOL, Duchesnays and DavisWhite are only #9 and #10, although she had Sarah Hughes and so on in the top ladies.
    Her top 8 is realistic !

    I like some of her top tens but would take out Sarah Hughes from the women, I don't think with her limited longevity and technique she should make it.. and also would add Bourne & Kratz to the top ten - perhaps even replace McCall and Wilson or the other Canadians.. I totally agree with the top three in the pairs and the top ladies and dance but not really the rest..
