I think you can combine players and say whether or not it replaces a guy. Why can't you? Simmonds and Schenn scored almost double the points that Richards has scored in their time here in Philly and they are bringing a lot of the same aspects of their game. Neither one alone has "replaced" him, but I'd rather have Schenn and Simmonds than Richards.

Schenn and Simmonds alone are both lesser players than Richards, but it isn't like they are scrubs. There is nothing wrong with saying that two players replace a single player (especially when they are players that were traded for each other).
