7 PPGA in 77:14 SHTOI (~11 min per GA, ~81.9% PK%)

And keep in mind that Suter gets to play with Shea Weber, while Green pairs with Jeff Schultz or Scott Hannan. This is reflected by Suter's +0.078 Qualteam and Green's -0.018. Suter faces slightly tougher competition than Green, but both players are within .025 of neutral QoC.

The stats show that Green actually ends up making more defensive plays than Suter, is a better penalty killer, though gives up some more goals at evens strength (though he doesn't get the benefit of playing with Shea Weber). And given the relative disparity between their offensive games, Green is absolutely ahead of Suter.
