I think they are pretty much the same player too. They averaged 27-28 adjusted ESP per season, they had one great season of selke recognition, they got the same ES icetime, and both played about 40% on the PK for teams 5% better than average.

Patey's advantage is that he did all that for 50% longer than Patterson did.

Patterson's advantage is that he did this for MUCH better teams and improved their already great ES GF:GA ratio (1.23 to 1.27). Patey was on horrible teams and didn't help their ES GF:GA ratio (0.83 to 0.70)
