As a tip of the proverbial hockey helmet to the game's overall development the past four years, the cover athletes should be the Sedin twins. Because each one looks exactly the same as the last one.

I really hope it's either Rinne or Datsyuk that wins though.

Hartnellmania is running wild!

Obviously I'm voting for Scott Hartnell and Claude Giroux. Then after that i'm not sure.

If you want games to sell in the US..... they'll have to put Lundy on. Giroux hurt his image with that last game. He had an amazing series vs. Pitt, but no one will care.

I'm proud to see Pekka Rinne make it this far, but I have a feeling he will get crushed versus King Henrik.

It only makes sense for Datsyuk to be on the cover. He wears the #13.

...I said the same thing about Kopitar in 2011.
