Will we need to redo all of our hub backlinking because the URLs have changed?

I figure this is the push I need to get going and build my hub portfolio. I'm nervous just...

Is it as grande as it sounds? I don't have many hubs as of yet, and I don't have many views. One of my least viewed hubs (though the hub I'm most proud of) got picked for editor's choice, whatever that means, but it doesn't seem to have particularly changed the audience engagement with my hub. It...
