I don't think that will be the case--at least not because of Tyutin's play. Renney said he thought he played Tyutin too much last season--Tyutin was playing around 20+ minutes due to all the injuries. If anything, the key to reducing Roszival's minutes is to get him off the power play (since there are now other alternatives who are right-handed shots). Malik will continue to play his minutes too--he was signed to soak up minutes on the blueline. Hopefully, the difference will be that Ward will take some of the key minutes Roszival was "forced" to play.
