Not lately. The last non-role player they drafted was Franzen in 2004. Their reputation was built in the 90's and for some reason, carried over. I don't think Abdelkater, Kindl, or Helm are anything spectacular. McCollum and Ferrraro were busts. And Brendan Smith might be the most overhyped prospect of all as he has just became an NHL regular at 24 after being listed as a top 50 prospect since he was drafted. A first round pick shouldn't take 6 years to make it to the NHL.
