Should Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole line be broken up for scoring depth?

Bourque and Plekanec shouldnt play together.
Plekanec is suited to play a shutdown role, which is absolutely not the strongest part of Bourque's game.
Gionta is also a question mark at this stage, and at 33, he shouldnt be relied on either, regarding the most difficult matchups. And since the only other options (for wingers) are Pacioretty and Cole, you have no choice but to split them up.
Having a good exploitation line is fine and cool, but when you dont have any true trio ready to matchup against the best players of the opponent, its one step forwards and two step backs.
There is a lot of good reasons if none of the teams are using such a setup when they're short on good wingers.
