Same way I felt. They don't include us in the highlight video with the Pens for the playoffs and now Giroux isn't even on the one of the all star teams!

Only way to take revenge on the NHL is clearly winning the cup and making them broadcast our team as much as they have to!

Does anyone know how many French-Canadians have been on the cover?

Which centre would you exclude for Roo to be included?

He was on the ballot as a RW, too.

In the end its just a video game. Glad he won it but next year hopefully he's bringing home some additional hardware.
But had the infamous taxi thing(I actually thought he was a year earlier, so that was a mistake on my part). Kane is the only cover athlete to win the cup though. Neither Toews nor Stamkos teams won the cup.

I'm sorry I didn't know they had a representative on the cover as well.

I don't know how a player can be on a list for two positions (he's not the only one -- just an odd circumstance), but he ended up 3rd in both categories.

Then how is it a curse? What, was the cover supposed to give Toews and Stamkos magic pixie dust that would ensure that they win the Cup? I'm pretty sure the cover had nothing to do with Boston or LA winning the Cup the past couple of years instead of CHI/TB.

I can't believe Pens fans are saying they aren't buying the game because Giroux is on the cover. That is ridiculous. Just take the cover off. Lol. What a bunch of babies.

If Malkin won I was going to throw out the cover and scribble him out on the disc with permanent marker.

I wouldn't have even done that. Who cares? It has nothing to do with anything and it's not like the player gets any extra benefit from you buying the game. I suppose if Malkin got money for every copy sold I could see an ardent opponent of Malkin not buying it, but otherwise it is stupid. If you are like me you won't even see the cover because it is always on a shelf except for when I am taking the game out or putting it away. Find something else to complain about. lol

It wasn't really the cover I was worried about, but the game disc. Seeing Malkin's face every time I wanted to play another game would drive me to suicide.

You know, it really doesn't matter. An annual console game that gets updated every year and the last one is forgotten as the new one comes out. It's more of a novelty factor than anything if Giroux or anyone else did get on the cover.
