Bryz's contract, 1 cup guaranteed, 8 losing seasons.
Any other goalie and no guarantee of a Cup.
EDIT: Also, they didn't win the cup DESPITE Huet. He won half of their games. He didn't hurt them in the playoffs. He didn't hurt them in the regular season. His contract was big, yes, but it clearly was not hurting them, considering they won the Cup. And just because a player is traded/waived/whatever doesn't mean he isn't earning his contract. People get traded/waived for a number of reasons. He had a huge cap hit and they had a capable goalie behind him. Doesn't mean he didn't earn his contract (just look in the rafters at the United Center to see that banner that says 2009-10 Stanley Cup Champions).
