I'm assuming he's referring to the fact that pretty much anybody can put up points on the PP. Points at ES are much harder to come by, and require more skill.

Also, PP points are largely driven by opportunity, where some players get mounds of PP time and other next to none, while all decent players get within a certain range of ES minutes.
