Does Scott's signing suggest a different setup?

(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.
I don't think that's out of the question. I'm not really sure that Roy is the right two-way guy - rather have Ott.
A Scott - McCormick - Kaleta line in the grinder role, seven minutes a game, seems reasonable.
