That's a massive difference. It works out to 120 extra offensive faceoffs in a season.

That's only because people were skeptical Pacioretty would rapidly recover from injury. Pacioretty's productivity in 2010-2011 is actually very similar to his production in 2011-2012.

Gionta could be a better winger than Cole, but he was injured. Happens.

AK46 was playing at a 32 goal pace on the Eller pace, as good as Cole played. He was then moved to the Gomez line where he produced nothing.

Cammalleri's production indeed declined to 9 goals in 38 games. He is simply not suited for defensive shutdown duty.
