NHL 12 Cover

My only issue is that if you didn't know the cover was supposed to be Steven Stamkos, it'd be really hard to tell.

You can't see the name. Most people don't know the new jersey, and they really aren't going to know it without the big logo on the front.

It really looks like an awkward position for a cover shot. I'm fine with Stamkos as the cover, but they need a better picture.

Waht happens if Stamkos signs an offer sheet somewhere else?

Stamkos will probably be earning somewhere in the $6-7M range which would require teams to have possession and give up a multitude of first round picks for several years to come, including several 2nd round picks as well in compensation to Tampa.

As far as the cover goes, at first glance i thought it was one of the Sedins. I don't get all the lines across the image. It looks like a giant mess, almost like an artist sketching an image with pencil. It's really hard to make out who it is exactly. Maybe go for a shot that reveals the TB logo, and shows more of Stamkos's face without all the obstruction.

Cool to see Jonas on the cover, although it's always a little disappointing to know that the only time a Duck has ever been on the cover has been in Europe (This one with Hiller, then the Finnish cover usually has Teemu on it.)

And that picture of Jonas is from two seasons ago, but whatever you want to do EA :rolleyes:

I'm surprised Ice Cap hasn't left his comment about the Tampa Bay Maple Lightning cover yet, but overall I don't mind it. I'm thankful it isn't another Blackhawks player.

My biggest complaint is that it appears that the guys at EA Sports didn't get the memo about Tampa Bay's "actual" uniform updates.

It was me this time.

Just have to add one stripe and change the shoulder logo to put him on the Leafs. :P

People have been insinuating what they think I'm going to say a lot lately.

Well, it's not meant to upset you... just poke fun at you going off about Tampa Bay's "new" uniforms.

I wonder though, with the cover's aesthetics being inaccurate that does made me wonder how badly EA Sports will screw up the actual uniforms for the 2012 version. I mean, nothing will beat their phenomenal screw-up that was Madden NFL 2005, or how you had to enter the Reebok Edge code in NHL 08.
