He didn't really do anything.
Just from the days of DR, they hyped him as the center for Gabborik and Demitra as a 19-year old.
Turns out, it was just another 19-old. Not good enough for the top-6. Not defensive or good at draws enough for the 3rd line. So he wasted away on the 4th line. He got some time on the 3rd when there was injuries, but didn't do anything.
Toss in that Thelen, Pouliot, and Gillies were also busts, and any Wild 1st round draft pick from that era gets some hate.
