Exactly. Look at the contract structure of the team and insert the youth where the contract aren't renewed.

Best for Leblanc to emerge as a leader of the younglins in the likes of Gallagher and Galchenuyk. These are the three that will replace Gomez, Gionta and Bourque.

And it may be as early as the 2013-14 season.
