Scenes From A Draft

Here is a photo essay from Okposo Net's trip to Montreal, with a few captions (click to enlarge):

It was all business as soon as the bloggers hit Montreal.

When we entered the arena, Tavares highlights were playing on the scoreboard.

Our vantage point before the selections began.

The assembled media.

Okposo Net hard at work.

Pre-draft rankings.

The crowd gathers.

Someone you may know. It was definitely "nervous time." Here comes the pick...

It's Tavares! He dons the Islander jersey for the first time!

Tavares' first interview as a New York Islander.

As close as we could get during the media scrum.

The man of the hour.

The proud Islanders crest.

We know these guys.

Lastly, a very blurry Calvin De Haan, taken at #12.

It was a great trip, and we're glad we could be a part of it. We look forward to John Tavares' Long Island introduction on July 8th.
