MDZ does have a higher potential to act as an offensive presence in the offensive zone than McDonagh or Moore. What I mean by that is, he can take on the role of being the 4th forward on the ice and abandon his defensive responsibility in favor of a chance to carry the puck down low and try and make a play whereas Moore and McD will always favor making 80-90 percent of their plays around the point give or take a few feet.
Skills wise, MDZ will do certain things that McD probably won't do (not because he can't but because it's not something McD cares to do), but in terms of skating, puck handling, and yes, passing, McD has the distinct advantage on MDZ.
