If I wasn't forced to make a choice, I would say none.

Oduya at 3m seems a little bit steep too (despite the fact that the Devils signed him to that contract)

Lemieux was probably the best of them, in that he added something to the team, even if he clearly wasn't the same player he'd been during his first stay. I remember being thrilled when that trade was announced.
Sykora has been decent, considering his salary and the fact that not much was expected.
But I'd like to see Lou give up on the ex-Devil thing for a while.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Edit: didn't see TheMazz's post, but that's exactly how I feel about Souray potentially being a mentor for Larsson or even Fayne.

Somebody's gotta be the hero... Why not me?

Anyway, if I had to pick someone, I'd go with one of the following:
- Oduya, though I'm not sure if I want him at his current cap hit ($3.5M)
- Gomez, but only if the Habs buy him out and he's willing to play here for $1M or less. I do NOT want to trade for Scott Gomez.
- If the goaltending situation changes, bring back Clemmensen. He's not really any better than anyone else out there, but he is a known entity as far as the Devils are concerned. His current cap hit of $1.2 million is reasonable as well.
- Steve Sullivan, assuming he doesn't retire after this year. I will freely admit, though, that this is purely a nostalgia pick.
I'm not sold on Souray, and I definitely don't want any part of Arnott, Langenbrunner, or Madden.

IT IS VERY HARD TO WIN ONE STANLEY CUP, FORGET ABOUT THREE... and maybe it's high time some of you actually APPRECIATED THAT instead of treating it like it's some flipping birthright because for some random reason you rooted for the damn Devils!!!!!
