Ultimate cherry picking of data. Brodeur has 4 Vezinas or 40% of a decade. Throw in Theodore(2nd round), Miller(5th round) and Kiprusoff(5th round) who were wiggled out of consideration, the lost season, plus Thomas(9th round) and Lundqvist(7th round).
Effectively all Vezina winners from the last ten played seasons were viewed as having NHL potential. The round they were drafted fairly reflects how long they would take to reach their optimum NHL performance.
