I agree with your general point but I don't think it is that bleak. I think you could easily argue that Kane, Parise and even Kessel are high-end elite forwards*. At the very least they have had a season or 2 or more where they produced like high-end elite forwards*.
*I guess part of the problem with these conversations is we all probably have different definitions of what a "high-end elite forward" is.
