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.
But on top of that he had the attitude that he didn't need to do anything more while he was here. I think that's what really sells him as the punching bag.
