Stopped caring after I read that...

Who cares if you're not into video games or the NHL series? Help our subban out and take the 15 seconds to vote or tweet.
But hf is full of cynical old men and young people that think dismissing young culture makes them intelligent or mature, and they are WAY too cool for that

lol they would be such retards to think bergeron could sale more than subban... so yeah voting has been useless... I guess last year they did it in purpose to keep subban out.. for the first cover of the new generation systems...

But seriously... what a load of crap. Lol...

The reason why they put that clause there is to protect themselves more so than ignore the voting.. Say Bergeron won and had a few run ins with the law in the summer for instance than they wouldn't want to be associated with that player.. That's purely speculative though, they probably do want Subban on the cover over Bergeron.. He has more star appeal

Yeah, but also generates more hate! I could see many Bruins and Sens fan not buying the game just because it has Subban on it!

Who is most likely to have their run-ins with the law, Bergeron or Subban?

This, exactly. I mean, honestly, only EA knows just how much stock they put into the whole cover vote thing, but a clause like that just means they're not bound to use the winner of the vote in the case of a Dany Heatley incident or what have you.

I tend to agree with overlords that it's more for promotion than anything, but whatever. I retweeted Subban's thing for a chance to win that puck, why the heck not.

I suspect that's simply a morals clause in the event a winner pulls a "Tiger Woods".

No idea. Both people seem to be extremely well spoken and intelligent men. I've never heard a bad thing about either person off the ice. They'd be two of the last people I'd expect to get in trouble with the law.

I was just using that as an example haha.. TBH they seem like two of the most straight up off ice people in league.. Subban doesn't even really drink as far as I know or anything like that

Subban once again is trailing Bergeron somehow. Even if this is all rigged by EA if I can help prevent a Bruin from getting the cover I will. Keep voting!

Unless EA is only counting the votes on the NHL.com, that's ********. EA said Subban was trailing Doughty as well, but Subban ended up winning. I have a feeling they are only basing that on who is winning on the NHL.com ballot, and not on twitter. I'm almost positive Subban is beating Bergeron on twitter.

Honestly, if Bergeron is on the cover of the game, ill just buy the game digitally. I don't want that gross spoked B anywhere in my house.

They'll say whatever gets more re-tweets to come in, promoting their product. Subban voters will dwarf anybody else right now, so what would keep them voting and getting the NHL 15 hashtag out there?

1) Telling them that Subban is winning

2) Telling them that Subban is losing


I wonder...

I wish EA would just have a bunch of different covers that you could chose from... but of course they would never ever pass up on all of this free advertisement.
