A quick rundown.....

BiS is true ONLY IF you have all the other pieces in place. Also... realize that t9 and t10 gear have the same defense value! Quick example: t9 chest has defense.... t10 doesn't!
Looking at your armory.... a couple things.
-Keep hold of Essence of Gossamer. It's still a nice trink. I use it if I'm dealing with packs of trash to take some bite out of hits
-Inevitable defeat is still a damn good DK tanking weapon. I would keep that and use it until you get a drop from ICC. Trust me... you're aren't going to find much of sh!t that has the awesome combo of str/agi/stam/expertise that Inevitable Defeat has. Go ahead.... look all you want. I've looked.
-Monarch Crab.... the way you have it gemmed up... it'll be hard to beat with any trinket less than one of the frost emblem ones like Corroded Key. Keep it. Anyone who scoffs at it's low gear score... kindly point out to them that it's +114 stam, +34 def.... and has a cooldown that gives higher dodge than Ick's Rotting Thumb
-Switch out Sigil of Awareness for Sigil of Virulence. I know... Insolence gives dodge. Read it carefully: "each time you use Rune Strike, you have a chance...". BLAH! One... you NEED to use Rune Strike, meaning.... "I hope I can get a dodge or parry!" and dodge is nerfed in ICC.... and Two... it ONLY GIVES YOU A CHANCE for a proc. Frankly.... that sucks. Virulence procs often and on your big hits. When it does... you can watch your threat/dps climb.
I'm not going to nitpick gear beyond that. Now.....
Your build. IF you want to keep Inevitable Defeat.... frost might not be the best way to go. It's your call. You really should run with a build you truly feel comfortable playing. Confidence > all. Well.. not really... but it counts for a lot. If you want to go with a 2H.... look at a blood spec. If you like frost.... at least think about DW as the talent tree has changed significantly to support this style.
Trade skills..... are the icing. Gratz.
Just for reference.... here's what I'm currently running with : Draecos of <Kickin Back>
No one tanks in a void.........
