No one really appreciates how good of a player he is. I think it's a combination of a bunch of factors:

1. Not a flashy player in the slightest
2. NJ Devil
3. NCAA player
4. 6th? round draft pick
5. Came out of no where
6. Incredibly dull name. Sounds like the lame kid in high school that everyone knew but no one cared to talk to.
Right handed shot.

Seriously. That makes him so much more attractive for a 6th defenseman spot, unless all the guys ahead of him are RHs already. It actually wouldn't shock me at all if Greene and Fayne both made the roster. The United States' defensive lineup is a bit scraggly.
