2010 Draft Party Fan Reaction Video

Here is a video showing another vantage point of the fan response to picking Nino Niederreiter with the #5 overall draft choice at the 2010 coliseum draft party.

You'll notice some people making noise and being excited, but many people were sitting in their seats with little response, positive or negative. I was surprised by the pick, and apparently so were the majority of fans in attendance. One thing most Islanders fans have come to expect from the Garth Snow Regime, is that they are willing to go after their guy no matter what anyone else thinks.

As I've said numerous times, only time will deliver the verdict regarding which team did the best job in this year's draft. I appreciate them drafting some bigger guys though. I hope it means that they see and are trying to address the same issues I see about team size and strength on the puck.

Check out the year before, when they drafted John Tavares with the #1 overall pick. It was one of the most intense moments I've ever experienced at the coliseum.
