Let's do the same with forwards who scored 500+ points because that's the minimum one can expect of a consistent top-6 player over the course of his career.

1994: -
1995: Sykora
1996: Briere
1997: Hossa
1998: Tanguay, Gagne
1999: Havlat
2000: -
2001: -
2002: -

So that's 6 players in those 9 years. Almost half the time, not a single player drafted from 12 to 30 becomes a 500-point producer over the course of his career.

Note that 500 points is not that huge. That would be an average of only 42 points per season for a dozen years from the age of 21 to 33.

That's not a spectacular career. That's just... ok.
