I, personally, dont think we would have, as our team is successful BECAUSE we are rolling the three scoring lines.
What ifs are rarely all that valuable... however, I'm not sure you can assume going for scoring is necessarily going to be more successful than going for stronger situational play. You also have the whole thing with the PP struggling this year, and that being a bit of an anchor on the team's scoring.

I also think the 2-1-1 line setup is more valuable come playoff time than it is during the regular season.
