It means he was a good hockey player.

Success in the pros means he was good here?

No but I don’t think he was bad here, especially if we consider that he was surrounded with bad teammates. I don’t remember who exactly he got paired with but looking back at the D back then he most likely was dragging around some anchor to his right. There’s also only so much the D can do when the forwards can’t score or drive possession very well. Towards the end Tony Lucia was one of the top scorers on the team (and one of the hardest workers imo) whereas he was (I think?) a fourth liner back when the Wheeler goal happened. Just goes to show what happened to the forward depth after 2008.
