After I posted this, I went back to HD and found InvisaFlow StealthFlow 28-1/2 in Downspout Extension. I am going to get up on the roof tomorrow and see if it will go through the hole, threw the insulation, and provide the flow path.
I will be back on the roof tomorrow and can see whether what you suggested will work. I am not sure that the French drain pipe will fit through the rectangular hole in the soffit or whether it will be strong enough to force through the insulation. I'm not sure what I picked up will work either. The insulation at this point seems to consist of some type of stiff heavy blanket, not just blown material. As always with these projects, nothing is ever as you would assume. I'll take a picture tomorrow. Today - I get to drive 7 hours (up and back) to spend time with my mother-in-law.
