Open Thread: How will team chemistry be affected by departures?

I have been thinking a lot about next season over the past few days and one of the things I woke up thinking about this morning was Gonzaga's overall team chemistry for next season.  Looking at this list of players that are no longer with the team, it is easy to see that we might see a very different team in 2010-11:

Matt Bouldin (Four years in the program)
Will Foster (Four)
Andy Poling (One-and-a-half...ish)
Grant Gibbs (Two)
GJ Vilarino (One)
Bol Kong (One)

Regardless of how many minutes each player has logged, there is no doubt that losing this many guys affects how a team will function on and off the court. 

My question to all of you is A) How much of an effect do you think these losses will have and B) Who, in your mind, will step up and be this team's leader?  Is it the most talented guy in Elias Harris, is it the most seasoned guy in Steven Gray or is it guys like Meech and Rob who seem to be the most vocal and energetic on the court. 

The thread is completely open for discussion and I look forward to hearing some quality views as I think this could be a major issue to watch as we move towards the start of the 2010-11 season.
