Vote for Evgeni Malkin for NHL 13 cover! (EDIT: Malkin out, Vote for Pekka Rinne!)

http://covervote.nhl.com/:b=ie8/#/ballot

Mario Lemieux is the only Penguin to ever be on the cover of an NHL game.



From what I heard, Sidney Crosby has been asked to be the cover athlete for previous NHL games but he declined.

Do you want a Flyer on the cover? Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell are on the ballot for the final 16.

Vote for Geno!!!

EDIT: Malkin's out. Vote for Pekka Rinne!

Malkin advances to round 2 along with Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell, and Anze Kopitar. It looks like they have it set up like the playoffs. (1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc.)

#1 Claude Giroux

#2 Scott Hartnell

#3 Evgeni Malkin

#4 Anze Kopitar.

So if it goes like the playoffs, round 2 cover voting would be.

Giroux vs. Kopitar
Hartnell vs. Malkin

Round 2 voting starts May 11, even if you don't play the game or don't play video games at all, at least put in a vote for Malkin.

Vote for Geno!!!

The cool thing is when you vote you can just hit re-vote and do it over. Takes literally about 6 seconds to re-vote.

It's not even that hard to register either.

is it bad that I kind of want Perron or Oshie to win because I have absolutely no clue what they look like? If I saw a blues skater I'd just assume its Pietrangelo or Backes

For the love of God the cover is an evil curse to begin with, and it's cover 13.

Giroux deserves this honor! VOTE GIROUX! Let Geno focus on the real.

You can, but you have to have the right size, right kind of paper, etc. for it to look legit.

I think they should make a custom NHL cover for Malkin as a Gamestop promotion (in Pittsburgh only) if he loses since this is based on fan votes.

They did that in Canada for NHL 12.

Hmmm... I dunno... are you saying the curse is broken? That 13 doesn't matter?

Maybe if they change the numbering... NHL 71. Has possibilities. I'm still on the fence about this.

To me it has bad karma written all over it. We fell short this year, it's the number 13, it's 2012.

Hard to imagine how the world won't end.

the curse ended at the lockout. 2005 was the last year anyone faltered because of getting the cover when Naslund was on it.

OK... i guess I'll relent. But what if year 13 is the year the curse is reborn?

Next round of voting is up. Malkin is one of the last 8 and he's facing Hartnell. If he wins, he'll probably be going against Giroux next. Gotta stop those Flyers from winning this at least.

You can also vote an unlimited number of times it looks like.

I want Geno to grace the cover, but I don't think it's going to happen, especially with the way EA made the match ups...

EA should have had Hartnell and Giroux face off against each other instead of have the possibility of 2 of the last 4 players be Flyers...Also, why EA made both remaining goalies face off against each other with 8 players left is idiotic...In my opinion, EA is making this go the way they want/intended for it to go from the time the conceived this idea. Conspiracy

A Penguin and a King against two dirty, rotten Flyers?
