If you look at it specifically, you are probably right. However this move is not the first that is leading towards a softer team.
Assuming a healthy line-up (1) there is no more room for Prust in the top 9, (2) Halpern in Montreal does have an impact on Dumont and White's (both play with more energy and toughness than Halpern) status with the team and (3) Diaz deserves to play and once he is ready, 6’6” Tinordi will probably be the one who will end up in the AHL or the press box. You can also add the way Moen is playing since his concussion: he did change his game a little... he looks more careful out there.
Both Dumont and White are doing a good job in the FO circle so I am not sure what need Halpern answers.
