Knowing to play hockey and being able to play meaningful hockey at the NHL level are very different things. And I don't think your giving enough credit for high an attrition rate there is for those kinds of minor prospects.

Then there's the matter of being good enough at that kind of game that it registers above background for depth players. Mike Blunden can skate around and hit people, it doesn't make him meaningful for winning NHL hockey games.
