If Bobrovsky got more votes than Marty I don't know what to believe. I could see Tavares or Datsyuk beating out Marty before a relatively unknown player like Bobrovsky. The votes supposedly took place before he won the Vezina.

That seems kind of pointless, especially when it's more or less obvious who won.

I think if Bob had won, they would have announced it in conjunction with his Vezina. It would have been the perfect opportunity.

Marty has it in the bag...especially since it's the Devils who confirmed the announcement date, not EA. Obviously the Devils are in the loop because their guy won.

Giguere was the original Goodyear lol. He probably is the same weight or close enough as Marty but looked ten times bigger in net.

Holy crap! I just saw this, too.


That long??????

Somebody should just leak out who the damn winner is NOW and do the OFFICIAL announcement on the 28th. I'm sick of this. This is starting to feel as annoying as the Kovy-Contract fiasco.

I thought it was leaked as EA had the Marty cover all over the place at E3? I'm just waiting for the awesome video reveals at this point. And you can even clearly see more work was done to stylize the E3 Marty cover from the initial mock up of the two covers they had on the vote page.

Anyone know if they stop taking preorders at one point? The Devils should def jump on this and offer some kind of deluxe package like a copy of nhl14, a ticket to a game and some other small items. I would pay for that!

Haha, those days are gone. I never preordered an nhl game though, so any advice on who offers the best goodies I'm all ears.

Maybe the Devils asked EA to delay the announcement so they can do some special offer/pre-order on draft day?

If anything, I thought it might be the other way around. They had Barry Sanders announce at the NFL Draft that he was the next Madden cover; Last year, Sanders was among the veterans that announced 2nd round selections for teams. We know Marty will be at the Draft for Anthony, so we might get a similar setup if Marty won.

The "obvious" is that Marty obviously won the cover vote, otherwise the Devils wouldn't be hawking it on Twitter for 10 days leading up to the announcement. You don't see the Blue Jackets with any sort of countdown going on...

Plus, the Devils revealed that June 28 would be the date of the announcement even before EA did. Obviously they had some inside knowledge of it because they were notified Brodeur won.

Brodeur knows by now if he won. thats fact. he has to make time to go in and do the thankyou video etc. Devils twitter is making a big deal. the E3 'leak'. The twitter numbers. the campaign. the Bobs KHL fiasco.

I dont like calling it in the bag, id rather just wait till its official.... but it looks good

@VoteBrodeur 15m

Cover vote winner announced Friday, June 28 at 6 PM. Devils have a season ticket holder draft party that night from 5:30 to 8. Coincidence?

It's only for season ticket holders who chose it as one of their renewal bonuses.



For previous seasons, the Devils held a draft party and equipment sale on the day of the draft, but since the draft is in NJ this year, they can't hold it on the actual day of the draft because there's going to be too much going on at the Rock, so they scheduled it for the Friday before.

I chose this renewal bonus solely for the equipment sale, but there isn't going to be one this year unfortunately. Below are the details I got via email:

Quote:
As part of your 2013-14 Season Ticket renewal benefits, you chose to attend the “Devils Draft Party”. While all Season Ticket Holders will receive tickets to the actual Draft on Sunday, June 30th, only those of you who selected the Devils Draft Party, are invited to join us for this exclusive event on Friday, June 28th at Prudential Center.

At this event, you will hear stories from Devils Alumni about their own personal “draft day experiences” and all the emotion that was involved on their big night entering into the NHL. You will then be brought on to the official 2013 NHL Draft stage, where we will take an individual photo of you and your guests holding a red Devils jersey! We are thrilled to provide you with this once in a lifetime opportunity to take a photo as if you were the first round pick, on the same Draft stage where the actual prospects will take their photos on Sunday. We will post your photos online and they will be available to be printed or shared through social media with all of your friends.

This event will run from 5:30pm – 8:00pm, and we will be assigning specific time slots once we have a confirmed RSVP number. You may bring as many people as tickets on your Season Ticket Account. Please RSVP for this event by no later than Friday, June 21st. Discounted $5 parking will be available in the Ford Lincoln VIP Garage (Based on Availability). We can’t wait to share in these special Draft weekend experiences with you!

Thanks,
Your Fan Experience Team
