I think its going to be Leblanc unless Gallagher shows he's greatly superior. Leblanc is a bit more seasoned and probably more NHL ready as a result. The team will also want to win to start the season well instead of trying out prospects so they will pick the more seasoned replacement.

Makes me really wish they'd sign PK in a hurry before the current CBA expires.
Hopefully there are amnesty buyouts.
