    Since the create page and edit page in the Salesforce is the same program, I don't think it is possible to remove component from "create" page as long as you need to keep it in the "edit" page. In other words, if you remove the component away from create page, then you can not see it in the edit page. – Cray Kao May 17 '16 at 6:51

Cray Kao's comment is correct. The console determines which sidebars to use at the time the tab is created based on the type of tab it is. So when you create a new Lead, it determines which page layout is associated with the record type (if any) of the Lead and generates all the sidebars at that time. There isn't a declarative way to avoid this sidebar from showing up on the creation page without removing it entirely.

You could use the Console Toolkit to hide it, however. It would still be there if a user wanted to make it appear manually, but it would be hidden by default. One way that comes to mind is creating a custom console component and using an event listener for the OPEN_TAB event, then hiding sidebars when that event happens for the pages you want. It could look something like this (pseudo-code):

var listenerFunction = function(result) { 
    //if for some reason we don't get a return value
    if(!result) { return; } 
    //Check if the new tab is a Lead, then close the right sidebar
    if(result.objectId.substring(0,3) == '00Q') { 
        sforce.console.setSidebarVisible( false, result.id, "sforce.console.Region.RIGHT");

sforce.console.addEventListener( "sforce.console.ConsoleEvent.OPEN_TAB", listenerFunction);
