Macinnis did it too, but not as well.
MacInnis generally was the main passer on the PP. Teams would try to negate his shot, which would open up passing lanes that wouldn't be open to other players. MacInnis' teams consistently had strong powerplays, even when he switched teams and as other players were sorted in and out. Suter was certainly no PP slouch though.

The biggest advantage that MacInnis has over Leetch when it comes to powerplay contributions, once again, is longevity.
