Kessel not in EA sports 'Cover Vote' for NHL 13

Please merge if this is being discussed somewhere I can't find, but I just went to vote on the NHL 13 cover athlete and was pretty pissed to find Hartnell, Seguin, and Suban on there without Kessel being included. I'm not sure if there was a vote in order to get these 16 finalists, and most of them make sense, but common.. I feel like this is a little BS considering the year he just had as well..

There were preliminary votes. They had two options for each team. Kessel and Bozak for us IIRC. I guess he didn't make it through, oh well!

Oh alright. I just would have been really surprised if he was never considered at all. LOL at Bozak on the cover.

they should really do US and Canadian covers like they do with soccer games... one player appears on both but then one player is American exclusive and one is Canadian exclusive.

Lol @ Subban, Hartnell and Seguin. Good players, but seriously? Maybe Seguin will be on there one day, and a very, very slight chance that Subban will, but Hartnell? Come on.

Yeah, didn't they do that for the UFC video games? I remember they had GSP on the Canadian cover and Forrest Griffin on the U.S. cover or something like that when the first game came out

But then again, Kessel would be ironic on the Canadian cover because he's an American player himself, and guys like Hartnell and Seguin are Canadians playing for U.S. teams.

In the previous round of voting Kessel went up against Seguin and didn't get enough votes to move on.

Yeah, they did for the UFC game. for some reason I'm thinking they've done it for an MLB game as well. Just seem to remember something like that,but I could be way off hahaha.

Jose Bautista was on the cover of MLB 12 The Show which was sold in Canada and Adrian Gonzalez was on the cover of the version sold in the United States.

I think it'd be hilariously awesome if Hartnell was on the cover. That being said I think the most derserving are Malkin, Giroux or Lundqvist.

My mistake, I accidentally lumped him in there since Seguin and Hartnell play for American teams

they should just make a system to determine who should be the cover athlete by determining who is the most worthy. Obviously, MVP candidates are all worthy and also 2 or 3 popular guys that put up good numbers too.

List for this year, for me: Malkin, Stamkos, Lundqvist, Crosby, Giroux.

All of those guys are worthy of it, so then eliminate any that have been on the cover before(Stamkos), and anyone who is a little ***** about it(Crosby). Leaves you with Malkin, Lundqvist, Giroux. Pick one and go with it, you can't go wrong.

To me a game that adds gameplay elements from what a competitor had 8 years ago is unacceptable and its still not on par from games that long ago. Thats how bad NHL 12 is imo
