It's officially draft month! For June, we will look back at some of the draft classes to see how the Habs front offices of the past did with their selections. It's too early to examine some of Kent Hughes' first few draft classes. The 2015 class will be the subject of our seventh look at the history.

The 2015 NHL Entry Draft was at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida. The complexion of the NHL changed forever that night, as the Edmonton Oilers selected Connor McDavid with the first-overall pick. It is one of the best drafts of the decade, as other players in the top ten included Jack Eichel, Dylan Strome, Mitch Marner, Mikko Rantanen, Zach Werenski, and Timo Meier. The Canadiens had a good 2014-15 season, leaving them with the 26th overall pick.

I wish I could've skipped this draft class for Habs fans' sake, as it's a collection of some disappointing selections. The good news is that their drafting got better in the coming years.
