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

There are many assumptions you make for your question to be valid.
The most obvious being: you assume the 2.5 line will be as productive as last year right off the bench. It's certainly not impossible, but I certainly don't expect Cole to be as effective, for one. If the line ain't as effective, your question is moot.
Second assumption is forgetting the injuries that plagues our forwards last year. Including head injury in Cammalleri's case. Well start the season with healthy Gionta and Bourque, so it's not unexpected to have additional winger depth than last year, which makes your question obsolete.
I don't think having our scoring contentedness in a single line was that bad of a thing; our losing deficiencies came from elsewhere. Had we had a more experienced and less injury ridden defensive, swap Campoli with Hamrlik, and we would have been far from last place.
