One vote per day leads to much more genuine responses.
Giroux might win and you're complaining?

This basically comes down to a popularity contest, and the player with more fans is likely going to win. Out of the theoretical 900 people, there's bound to be a few who also have too much time on their hands and thus trump the other guy.

As a side bar; one of my pet peeves is the line "too much time on your hands." There's no such thing as having too much time on your hands, those statements are generally said by people who wish they had more free time. You can never have too much.

I know it's easy to let up and assume he'll win it all, but you never know what might happen.

So keep voting everyone!

When are the NHL Awards? Isn't that when the winner is going to be announced, not Monday or whenever it ends?

Yeah, they are going to be announced on June 20th at the NHL Awards.
It's kind of a stupid idea to make people wait that long, especially since they've been giving us updates and Rinne hasn't even sounded close.

June 20th is the NHL Awards and June 5th is when they're announcing the cover athlete.

I guess if they were to end the voting on the 4th and then wait until the 20th to announce the winner, all the hype would be gone...so it's better this way.


Edit: @jfb392, it says on the voting site that the winner will be announced on the 5th http://covervote.nhl.com/:b=chrome/#/ballot

Ah, could have sworn that they said that the announcement would be during the NHL Awards.
I missed the part saying that it'll be announced on the 5th.

Reading: who needs it!

I have a feeling Rinne isn't close since EA has only just said that Rinne is "closing in" on Giroux.

So I'm assuming they announce the winner on the 5th and they reveal the cover at the awards show?

Also some Preds fan says she's getting e-mailed percentages and that it's really close:

Do not believe. If that were true, I would think EA would have made light of the fact that he was only ahead by a hair, because that's a good way to get more people fired up. I have a feeling G is ahead by a large margin.

It could be true since yesterday

@EASPORTSNHL said this :


"@28CGiroux is leading but #Rinne is closing in"

Vote like he's behind. We're 2 days away from having Claude ****ing Giroux on the cover. Let's not screw this up.

"Closing in" could mean many things which is why I am skeptical. The lack of info and the stopping of updates also makes me think it's not really close enough to give out actual info.

Then again I could be wrong, but it seems really quiet compared to previous rounds, especially considering this is the final round.

Also, I'll give some votes for Giroux but I'm not going all out anymore. I just wanted Malkin out.

Last day!! Vote like your life depends on it

I would assume Preds fans want to finish strong today, so we all need to take some time off and vote.

The website still says the winner will be announced on June 5th. I'm guessing the cover, itself, will be revealed on the 20th. We better not have to wait...

It says on the website that the winner will be announced at the NHL Awards. If so that means were going to have to wait 2 weeks to hear the results ****

Keep voting for G though!! I already voted 50+ times today haha
