Criteria of NHL games played of a player that has been drafted and developed successfully.

Forwards Defenseman Goaltenders
1997-2004 - 125-200 NHL Games required 51-100 NHL Games Played
2005-2006 - 80 NHL Games required 25-50 NHL Games Played
This is the problem with quantitative analysis of draft success. There is a big difference between playing 125 games in the NHL and being drafted and developed successfully. You can't quantify drafting success so simply. You have to analyze every pick, relative to the picks made immediately before and after that pick.
