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.
It wasn't the shutdown work that killed Cammalleri last year, his even strength scoring was fine. It was the lack of powerplay scoring. The PP is Cammalleri's bread and butter, on even strength he isn't any better than Kostitsyn.
