"Transplanted plum tree" - pruning

I have a Victoria Plum that usually gives a large crop. Unfortunately, it had to be uprooted and moved today. It is about 15 to 20 years old so could well not survive. It did retain quite a reasonable amount of roots.

Does anyone have any advice on the best way to prune it and when?

Stone fruits are normally pruned in the summer this may help

I've been reading up and apparently I shouldn't prune it as it needs its leaves to grow new roots. But it will need watering well for a couple of years. I will need to trim some branches where it has been damaged but other than that, I'll just thin it a little, water well if dry and hope for the best. I'll probably remove most of the blossom this year if it flowers.
