Why is the Pittsburgh Penguins Defense so Bad?

The Penguins have new lineups for their first and second power plays. The first power play has the same players on it with one small twist. Evgeni Malkin will be on the point and James Neal will be moving up. The interesting thing is the Penguins second powerplay which practiced with Dustin Jeffrey and Paul Martin at point. The Penguins have had 8 defensemen on the roster all season...

Penguins take Neal off Point on powerplay, Replace him with Malkin, But that won't work either

Well the James Neal on the point idea that someone thought of went down in flames. So the Penguins decided, apparently, to replace him with Evgeni Malkin which makes no sense at all.

Boychuk saw on average 9 minutes playing time in the 16 games he played for Carolina last year and got to play all of 1 game with them this year.  My guess is that Dustin Jeffrey who was about to see time on Malkin’s...
