Does Scott's signing suggest a different setup?

So, I've made clear the past couple weeks that I thought we would run a 3 scoring line, 1 checking line offensive setup, with Kaleta and Gerbe as 2/3 of a 4th line checking line.

However, does this move suggest maybe we won't? I think maybe it's possible we will run with 2 pure offensive line (1 top line and 1 easy matchups line), a 2-way offensive line that sees checking assignments (see: Drury's line 05-07), and a traditional, 4th line hitting and grinding line.

(Without additions [which I don't predict])
Top offensive line: Vanek-Hodgson-Leino
Easy matchups line: Foligno-Ennis-Stafford
2-way line: Gerbe-Roy/Other center-Pominville
Grinder line: Tropp, McCormick, Kaleta, Scott, etc.

Biggest problem I see is the already discussed one of Leino. I'd prefer someone not just better, but bigger (Ryan zomg) there.
