only top 5 picks are expected to be top liners or first pairing really. Most drafts alot of picks 6-15 don't really pan out into mega stars.

Kadri scoring 50+ points would be great if he can do it consistantly.
Almost no picks turn into mega stars. Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos are mega stars. Only a handful of mega stars. Then we drop down to huge stars, mediums stars, small stars, stars, very very good players, ...

50-60 point players aren't stars whatsoever.
