There are no clues as to when Bournival or Gallagher will join the Habs. Under 3 years would be surprising.

And obviously anything can happen ; one two or the three of them could never make the NHL for us (lets hope not. unlikely for Leblanc, not so unlikely for the others), one two or the three of them could astonishingly become stars very fast (a la Subban).
Halpern is hardly locked for years, but I don't mind having that Moore/Halpern/Metro type vet playing center on the 4th line.

Gomez's salary drops to an average of 5 mill per over the final 2 years, so after next season I could see us moving him if Eller and Leblanc are ready.

Then our center situation in 2012/2013 and beyond would be:

Plekanec
Eller
Leblanc
