You don't change a whole team and their prospect pool in one summer+30ish games.

I'm pretty sure you can expect things to change. I doubt Therrien and Bergevin are going to keep a team that can get beat up. Actually if we look at the guys Bergevin was interested in, Prust, Armstrong, Bouillon, Clowe (rumored to have discussed him with SJ), Sestito, Drewiske, they are all guys that can either scrap and/or are big (Bouillon is the only small one but he can hold his own and lay out people).
It'll be interesting to see what he does this summer.
