That line was the only line who didn't use the dump and chase that much. They could drift away from the system because of their consistent production.
Cole got most of his goal coming off the rush and skating past defenders cutting to the net. Desharnais is good with the puck and you often see him gain the zone by himself. Pacioretty often feeds off that and plays similar to Cole.
So no, I don't think the new system will doom our scoring line. One thing that is obvious is that they'll garner much more attention from the opponents, so I do expect them to have a harder time to do what they did last year, specially Desharnais.
