I'm thinking Pittsburgh and Los Angeles with Detroit behind those two. Buffalo and Minnesota can throw a lot of money at him, and while I do think the Devils have the best shot at retaining him, I'm not so sure of their long term stability, especially since nobody knows what is going to happen in net once Brodeur retires (which is going to happen sooner than later).
We don't know what's going to happen when Marty retires, but I don't think they're in danger of becoming a second rate organization when he does. Besides, according to HF he's been done for the last two years.
