I would say Guan xing,or Zhang Bao.
I don't think Guan Xing or Zhang Bao are better, I believe they are the least when it comes to military experience other than Gao Xiang. Guan Xing died of illness, what is that about? He's body is so weak that he died early. Zhang Bao died during a skirmish and is one of the cause of Zhuge Liang's death. I think they just carried their father's names, I wouldn't really say that they didn't do much though since they were there during the northern campaigns.
I vote for Liao Hua over Zhang Ni since he has over come more vicious trials than Zhang Ni but both of their achievements are better I would even say aggrandized during and before the three kingdoms era.
