Biron will retire in less than 3 years. There's no reason why a young backup can't take over his job in the next couple of years, though almost certainly not this year.

Barring injury or his losing interest in hockey, Lundqvist will play another 10 years, give or take a couple years, so obviously nobody will beat him out for the starting role, but Biron will need to be replaced much sooner than that.

And as far as Lundqvist goes, since goalies take 6-10 years post-draft to develop into being a starter, we should start taking stabs at goalies in later rounds. Maybe one of the goalies we draft in the next 3-5 years will pan out.
