Thlen was ranked #8 and the second d man. Drated at 12.

Sheppard another top 10

Belle in 2005 was listed in the top 50 prospects,
AJ Thelen ranked over Marc Staal at one point.
O'Sullivan at #8
In 2006 Voloshenko was ranked our #1 prospect.

If by blue chip you mean AO and Crosby then no. But do some research and you will find that they were indeed ranked pretty high.

Cam Barker was once ranked the #9 ahead of Giroux at 21.Things change.
