NHL 13 Cover(Vote Kessel!)

Hello guys, and gals. Just saw on NHL.com that you can vote for who you think should be on the cover of NHL 13. Kessel is the only leaf on there so show your support and cast some votes.

http://covervote.nhl.com/:b=firefox11/#/ballot

Do er up!

EDIT: Link says firefox, hopefully it works for IE users and such, if not visit nhl.com and there should be a link for your to cast your ballot.

Isn't there a cover curse?

That applies to Madden, not any other EA titles.

What is it supposed to be? That the player will do badly the next season or something else?

the curse is called statistical regression towards the mean. the cover is awarded to a player who posted the best stats in the prior season. naturally, sustaining the same exceptional stats is rarely possible due to exceeding the "mean" performance a player can produce, thus a drop in stats is viewed as a " poorer" season. this correlation is why there is a percieved " curse".

Well the curse really only happens with madden I think because Stamkos did pretty damn well this season.

actually no. Most players get injured the next season or fall completely off the planet.

football is a rough sport, most of the people on the cover are wide recievers or runningbacks. you peak in performance, people notice you and you get targeted by headhunters. Same thing happened to crosby before the NHL cracked down on illegal hits. in football, there are no illegal hits, wear and tear is a lot worse than in hockey, harder to avoid contact too.

The Atlantic is impossible to pick. So many good choices.

Edit: Did not realize you can vote more than once in each division. Limit of 16
