People focus too much on positions and not on roles.

Pyatt is replacing Mitchell. Both players playing in the bottom-6 being relied on to inject a little bit of offense. Of course, Pyatt is much better at this than Mitchell.

Halpern is replacing Fedotenko. Both players, highly experienced, playing in the bottom-6 being relied on to play a strong defensive role and play on the PK. They're about equal in this sense. Halpern has the added benefit of being a center.
