The key question is how important to the show is Michael Scott. I think over the past few years Michael has actually become a drain on the show. I was sad to see him go, but think the show can grow from where it was. You have 3 characters who could take a more prominent role in Jim, Andy, and Dwight.
As long as they don't give it to someone in house (the Jim fiasco) the show should be good. It will need a different dynamic but it I think it can be very successful.
