As for them saving the world from shadow, of course they might have done some good accidentally.
We have a quote from the author saying they are up there guarding. They quite obviously are not just sitting court. In addition from tEotW...

A winter of heavy raiding has been damn near unheard of since the Trolloc Wars, what would you have them do given the size of the border and low numbers of AS? Davien has the right of it in his post. We know Greens are up their fighting but pre-travelling it would be close to impossible to be in the right place at the right time to combat raids.
