I remember reading about one of the Habs re-signing with the Habs on TSN, and there was a small snipit in that article about Gainey also signing Sergi Samsonov and I really thought that the Habs were going to rock that year... so, my vote goes to Sergei "Smurf" Samsonov.
Besides him, I can think of a lot of players that came here only to suck, leave, and hit their stride elsewhere. The Polish Princess comes to mind. Swiss Cheese Aebischer was a bitter disapointment, too. I liked both Radek Bonk and Mike Johnson but thought they'd play a bigger role on the squad. Then there was Janne Niinimaa whom I remember as a hulky physical defenceman from his Oiler days and... we didn't get that version of Niinimaa.
