No it can't. It does not drain near that much, not with a maxed Flow Capacitors skill, stacked Flow capacitors consoles and even using Equipment that enhances flow capacitors.
Go read the many threads on the Plasmonic Leech and how its already been discussed at length by the PvP/PvE community and the Devs, learn how its was nerfed to balanced to not over stack and stop spreading false information and causing other players to freakout over something that is not true.
tested it with a fleet mate just a few minutes ago and it does give +16 to all power levels and it can drain -16 to all power levels, So i don't know where you get your facts from but perhaps you should test it yourself.
And even If your opponent protects himself against power drain you still get the +16 to all levels, For comparison you can even get +16 to engines from dumping 22500 skill points into the engine power skill.
Hell you can dump all 99000 skill points into your power levels and still won't get the same benefit.
But hey lets have a mid-tier console that can surpass all your power skills because that makes perfect sense.
