Besides all that, he wasn't a very effective scorer as a forward.
The issue isn't PP scoring for the Sharks, it is 5on5 which means a PMD. They are in a mini-slump on the PP but their overall PP numbers are very good and probably the only reason that they aren't in the league cellar.
Their are some logical holes in your analysis.
Bergeron would be the 12th forward, but there could still be six defensemen. He'll just play "defenseman" on the power play.
