Pick 'Em: Bringing Back One 2009‑10 Cap

Following last spring's early exit from the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Washington Capitals (unsurprisingly) saw a bit more roster turnover than they had in recent summers, as a number of seasoned NHL veterans made way for younger (and cheaper) talent. The departures drained the team of depth and left some holes (and certainly some question marks) in the lineup, most notably down the middle, on the blueline and in net, as the team committed to evaluating the kids.

More than one-third of the way through the season, each of those potential "trouble spots" on the depth chart have been realized in varying degrees and many of those same questions and concerns persist. Whether or not they will be addressed from within or from outside the organization (or not at all) remains to be seen, of course, but our question for today is this: If you could bring back one of the following now-former Capitals from the 2009-10 team (and his salary would be of no concern), whom would it be?
