If that's what you consider "busted".....

So your point is by the same stage they tended to have 20 or less more NHL games played than Kadri?

To summarize, as stated, Kadri is falling right within the norm for the range he is selected in.

Define "successful".

He played 54 games in the NHL and looks to have spent another 20 on the NHL IR.

Saying that he made the NHL team is bragging him up?
Like the rest, he's played a handful more NHL games than Kadri at the same stage and had lower production (despite being picked higher). Holding him up as an example against someone who has posted nearly identical everything is just humourous.

It seems to be expected, based on how the majority of teams who promote their successful 1st rounders, that most 1st round picks are expected to make the NHL by their 3rd year post draft.
Sure it's "beneficial". What it is not is normal.
