This is true, but you're being unduly harsh to him. The first year was his rookie year, and last year he was a 2.59 GAON guy, which isn't terrible and represented an improvement over the year before. He's still early in his career, and should improve defensively as he goes along.
He also suffers from linemates. His most common line last year? Playing with Asham and JVR (17.14%). A full 14% of his shifts was on the 1st and 2nd lines (which is over his head). 5.86% with Giroux and JVR, so on and so forth. Powe is a 4th liner, and needs to be played as such.
