As a Leafs fan, I'm disappointed that Leafs Nation didn't rally to vote in Tyler Bozak as a joke.

Kessel doesn't deserve to be on the cover...i'd vote him if he was there but he doesn't deserve it at all. If anyone from the leafs was covering nhl13 it should be Joffrey Lupul...that guy made me a real fan of his this year

Also throw in the online pass b.s. that EA has in virtually every single one of their games now.

Picked up a used copy for $40, played Be A GM for a few months (needless to say, I didn't spend an extra $10 for the online pass, so I could play a bunch of kids online that spent an extra $25 for the stat boosting packs...), "Wow! Talk about glitches and freezing!". Stop playing for a couple of months, finally a patch is released fixing those problems. A couple of months later, another patch comes out. Install it, go to load my Be a GM game, it freezes. Try every single other save, all of them freeze.

WTF!? Turn off my internet connection so I don't connect to EA's servers, go to load the game, it runs fine. Try every other save, they run fine. Think it's a freak accident, enable internet again. Go to load, it freezes.

It's honestly bad enough a company that's as big as EA complains about software piracy and whatnot, but NOW they are sabotaging people that don't give an extra $10 to them, all because of crap like "Well, the resale market is like piracy! We don't get any money out of it!"

EA's gone to hell, and I'm not buying any of their sports games anymore.

EA Sports NHL cover: IT'S SERIOUS ****ING BUSINESS

I'm less concerned with who's on the cover and more concerned with whether or not EA actually manages to put out a game that doesn't basically amount to NHL 10 v4.0

Why are they even doing this fan vote? Just seems like stupid pandering to the fans. Just make a good game, I couldn't care less if you put some beer league hockey player on the cover.

Why doesn't he deserve it?

I think he had a career year and took his game to the next level, he's only going to get better as well. Phil Kessel is a superstar.

That's exactly what it is, it's good marketing, the fans buy the games so get them involved and excited = sales.

Woahh talk about bitter overacting gremlins.. jeez, my point was that I found it crazy he was not included in the vote (based on his actual play on the ice in the sport this year..) This was before I knew there was a vote made beforehand. My problem was that I thought Kessel should be getting some recognition around the league for the year that he had.

And to counter your sarcastic statement btw just for fun, making a cover of any type of sports video game (without fan vote) means you are likely a tremendous player, which for your team is "SERIOUS ****ING BUSINESS"..
