Edit: the only depth spot we really lose is stewarts which I don't think he fits in our system under hitch and Ryan can generate offense on his own.
Third line goes from Schwartz-Steen-Stewart to D'Agostini-Sobotka-Tarasenko, which means we lost a lot of depth scoring.

An Oshie level defender will be worse than Shattenkirk IMO, so the only true upgrade for next season would be Bobby Ryan, but with the combined offense that we lose, he doesn't make up for it.
