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).
Especially when Simmonds has more points than Richards since the trade by himself. Richards brings better D but Simmer brought more net pressence and a bigger body. And we have yet to see the best of Schenn.
