Since you get a larger number of Main Gauche procs with the dagger, you do get more energy from Combat Potency. That cuts into the loss from each MG hitting softer and, one would guess, is what lead to Blizzard removing the 45% buff for it.
However; it does not make up the difference (from what I'm seeing, equal ilvl 2.6s weapons do anywhere from 1-3% more dps). It also contributes to more frantic play since combat already suffers from energy overflow. Would be nice if they could nudge both problems in the right direction, but my guess is they will just leave it be.
I just picked up normal this week, would that be better to use over then?
