Their shooting percentages are 7.0 and 7.4% for their careers.

Since these comparisons are in an all time sense, and the guy playing in a lower scoring period of time has a bunch more powerplay goals than the guy being sold as having the capability to run an entire powerplay.. I think that is pretty significant even if PP goals don't tell the whole story with regards to powerplay effectiveness.
