True. Depth to me means easily interchangeable people. Not two good ones. Depth just in juniors or is the there depth in jrs and seniors. If people want to say there is no depth in seniors now and just depth in juniors than that should be stated. Julia at jr worlds was better than sotnikova and tuktamisheva at senior worlds and because they are all eligible seniors next season that means there is some depth in seniors. It's not like Julia didn't make the senior GPF with Tuktamisheva but had to withdraw due to a concussion. The former world silver medalist is also some depth. She's not at that quality now but she beat Tuktamisheva in the worlds short and was 3 points back of sotnikova! So if tuktamisheva and sotnkova can't easily be replaced by skaters of equal or greater caliber there is no depth and they aren't really improvements and the team might just as well be announced now. Or just bring back doronina!
