I'm sure atleast one young guy will emerge, but even if they don't you can resign Vannanen.
No way Parent has a higher ceiling than Carle. If Parent ever breaks 15 points in a season, I'll eat my laptop. Carle's already shown he can go over 40 not to mention he actually knows what to do with the puck in the offensive zone (checked out Parent's "shot" lately?).

Sbisa is an 18 year-old kid, but to say he has higher potential than a guy who's already had NHL success and so far has been playing like a legit No.3 for us is pushing it. Lots of things could still go wrong.
