It sounds to me the real issue is that Pens fans are too deeply in love with 71. Understandable. But I bet you guys regret it as the years go by and two-way teams like Chicago, LA and Boston keep grinding out cups.
But it doesn't make sense.

Is the upgrade defensively from AP to, say, Orpik, worth the downgrade at center from Malkin to Berglund?

No, it's not. It might be an incremental improvement defensively, but weakens the Penguins up front, where they are already thin.
