Jimmy and Pavs are the two Wing choices. More after the jump.
So the way the contest will go down is each team has two players to choose from. Once one player from each team has been picked, they'll go into 2nd round. From there the top 16 vote getters will advance and enter into a bracket for the final round.
The first round voting opened this morning and will end on April 11. 2nd round will be from the 12th to the 22nd and the final round will go from April 24th to June 6th.
So here's the link to the SBN article which I got this info from: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2012/3/29/2910683/nhl-13-cover-vote-ea-sports
And the actual NHL page where you can vote an unlimited number of times. http://covervote.nhl.com/:b=chrome/#/ballot
So now the question becomes: who do we pool our votes for? (Sadly TPH isn't an option otherwise this wouldn't even be a question) Since the first round is only between our two Wings we can take our time to decide. So to that end I'm hosting a poll which will end a week from now and after our horse has been decided we can start the vote spamming.
Even if you don't play or care about NHL games it's been forever since I've seen a Wing on the cover of an NHL game so please take the time out to vote at least once because you know some fanbase like say, Montreal's is going to put up a hell of a fight against.
And for the record, my votes with Dangles (sorry J-How!)
Pavs or Jimmy?
Pavel Datsyuk (30 votes)
Jimmy Howard (4 votes)
