I wouldn't be too worried. Simmonds will be a pretty much immediate fan favourite is my guess.
If Schenn comes in and actually takes a roster spot right away he will have to deal with comparisons to Richards, but as long as it's comparisons to Richards rookie season I wouldn't worry too much.
Fans were pretty irritated when Upshall was dealt, but quickly came around on Carcillo's side.
I would actually worry more about guys like Giroux or JvR. Will they be able to step up, especially JvR needs to show that he can play like he did towards the end of this season for an extended period of time. If he comes out cold like last year, I could see fans and media coming down pretty hard on him unfortunately.
