It does when we're talking about the power play, especially since neither are more impressive than the other when talking about stick skills or shot. McDonagh is a better skater (by far) but that doesn't matter much when it comes to the PP. His skating and ability to gain the zone (which is a byproduct partly of the skating) is excellent and superior to Del Zotto's and that's what gets him many of his ES points.
