When the Klitschkos finish, what happens to these guys:
David Haye - will come back to challenge whoever the next consensus Champion is. Will probably win, then retire again. Repeat until reflexes are gone.
Dereck Chisora - might grab a belt eventually but will essentially be a very good gatekeeper.
Tomasz Adamek - might bag a split decision for an alphabet title at some point but will more likely continue to fight losers in his hometown and fall short when a real challenge comes up.
Alexander Povetkin - will probably keep the WBA title for a while, fighting average opposition. Will eventually challenge the consensus Champion and lose.
David Price - will be in and around the top, probably win a belt at least once, but won't be a dominant force like the Klitschkos.
Tyson Fury - will get KOed before getting a proper title shot, although might be able to challenge someone with a dubious alphabet title before it happens. Will probably get more title shots on name recognition but will never hold a belt.

Very good analysis. I only believe that David Price will be next "Klitschko" in HW division. Prior to that he will lose to Wlad.

David Haye - wants money, should go back an fourth into boxing if the pay is right for the next 3 years, then retire for good.
Dereck Chisora - has hit his ceiling, B level, could stay around as a contender for some years and maybe pick up commonwealth and european belts.
Tomasz Adamek - a good fighter, also B level at HW, is up there on age and should retire within 3 years.
Alexander Povetkin - tremendous heart, should stay around the top for a few years on meaningfull fights.
David Price - raw, inexperienced version of Wlad K., will probably win a belt at some point, but won't be as sucessfull.
Tyson Fury - a question mark, nice upside, has shown good improvement, still at it, already had good results, could go all the way and win some title fights, not Klitschkos style though.
