Some are calling the 2015 NHL Draft class the best in years and Don Cherry agrees.

Cherry was joined by franchise centres Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel, plus consensus top-10 picks Dylan Strome, Noah Hanifin, Mitch Marner and Lawson Crouse.
“I’ve been doing this a long time and we’ve had a lot of guys on. These guys are the best we’ve ever had on,” Cherry said of this year’s guests.
Cherry is notoriously biased towards Canadian players, so there was a nice moment of levity when American Eichel presented Cherry with a gift — a USA Hockey shirt.
