I do care about a contest where Wayne Simmonds beats John Tavares.

To each their own. Personally I hope Sergei Bobrovsky wins the whole thing so EA is forced to re-evaluate their cover process.

I wouldn't have any problem with Bobrovsky winning. Hell, he might win the Vezina. Why is that a bad choice?

I'm guessing cause the casual fan is probably somewhat unfamiliar with him or not a household name really but I'd have no problem with Bob if JT gets knocked out.. I don't even play the game so it doesn't matter to me just would cool to have JT on the cover of a video game.

Absolutely. There is NOTHING sell-able about Bobrovsky. A Russian Goalie from the Columbus Blue Jackets that non of your casual hockey fan friends know anything about is going to be the face of your game?

Honestly, it isn't going to work out well for them unless Datsyuk, Tavares or Broduer win the polls.

I agree, that's why I'm not voting. It's so dumb.

It's dumb when you don't vote for your own player and the ***** about him losing.

It amazes me that the sentiment earlier was that this contest was rigged, thus it was dumb to vote. People all over HF thought it was a forgone conclusion to move on because of it. Now JT is losing and all of a sudden this is a "joke" that Simmonds might win, and they still aren't going to vote anyway. If you don't care about the vote, then so be it, it's your choice. But I agree that you shouldn't be whining about who wins the vote if you aren't voting.

Who is whining?

I have never voted, never will vote.

Think it's a dumb way to pick a cover regardless of who wins.

In any event, you won't hear any complaints from me if and when tavares losses.

Wasn't talking about you 2. I've been reading on other parts around HF and I don't get why people are mad that JT is losing, but still say they won't vote because they say it's rigged. If it was rigged they would they really want JT to lose?

Why are people getting so up in arms about a silly video game cover? It's going to be a long off-season......

Does it matter though. People do not buy the game because of who is on the cover. Maybe a very small handful of people who are collectors would buy it for the cover.
In all honesty they will sell the same amount of games no matter who is on the cover
