I'm doing that pretty rough, of course, but late 1st round picks are somewhere around 50% success rate (maybe even lower than that?), 2nds are about 25%, and rounds 3-7 work out to about 11-13% on aggregate.
Leaves you between 15-20% of going oh-for-the-draft if you pick late in the 1st.
I don't even care about NHL players, NONE of those players played a single NHL game and as a collective they played maybe 50 AHL games (Ellington and Matson) and barely made an impact.
