I know cream legbar eggs are very blue, I have also heard of something called a sapphire something? I don't know much about them but my guess is that their eggs would be pretty blue.

It's not the breed, it's the particular line of the breed. (Ameraucanas, Araucanas, Legbars) My Legbars lay a true, pastel blue and my Blue wheaten Ameraucana lays a more saturated true blue, but much less often. Some of the newer Reese line Legbars, and many Ameraucana lines lay eggs with more green.
The true show breeders will work on type and form first, and egg color later. Some people do cull heavily for egg color though, but their birds may not be as close to SOP.
All depends on what is most important to you.
