While it's not a huge deal, I can't fathom to understand why Crosby or Malkin or Letang haven't been spotlighted on the cover of the game.


Doesn''t make much sense to me. But the game sucks anyways. I bet if 2K sports was still around, Sid or Geno would have made the cover :pop:



Im all for Bobrovsky, dude is nasty! And I love to see goaltenders on the cover of vidyagames! :fist:

Crosby either wants too much money (doubtful) or just isn't interested in being featured, it looks like.

There are many an esteemed CUP alums on this board who are no doubt disturbed by the above.


Ok so...the author throws a fit about something that clearly shouldn't have been said and that is understandable....but then he turns right around and offers up something childish and ignorant too...posting the father's employment phone number. Seriously ridiculous IMO. On all fronts.

Flyers fans look forward to being internet vigilantes and we look forward to game two of the second round. Sounds just about perfect.

Yeah, how does Wayne Simmonds get picked for that. So many better hockey players. He's pretty good, but nowhere near star status. Wait. Controversial comment coming. Did the fact he's 'african american' have anything to do with it? Serious question. It can't be because of him as a player, so what else? Someone try to provide a justification.

Nevermind. I thought Simmonds got the cover already and that it was decided by the company.

Voting is still going on. Still doesn't make sense why he beat Malkin, though. My guess, if it's decided by the fans as I now find out, is that there is a whole lot of anti-Penguin sentiment out there.

Flyers fans always rally the troops when there's any way that one of their players can beat a Penguin. It's laughable, honestly. They are the lowest form of sports fans there is. I usually read GDT of other teams, just to get a better 'feel' for the game--the Flyers' are always filled with nonsense and very, very little hockey insight.

Actually, the company did pick Simmonds to even be in the voting. That I do not agree with.

I was reading HFBoards going into the Isles series and am now during the Sens series. I did see a lot of anti-Pens talk from fans of other teams. Guys coming onto Isles and Sens forums to give their support. It's kinda surprising to me, in a way. Like, what the people want from us, other than showing their jealousy we have a good team. I think we have one of the coolest and most likable groups of players around.

I agree. When it comes to the Pens tho for whatever reason more than any other good team fans and analyst all act like highschoolers complaining about the popular kids.

Screw the Flyers! This happened because they have nothing else to do during the playoffs. Those Phony Phriggin' Phans are Phuming because they are not playing right now. Bobrovsky should win, he has every right to be on it. However, I would like to have a Pen representin'.

Again just download and print a custom cover and you can have whoever you want on the front of the game if it bothers you that much. Some of the custom covers that get made are better than the one that is actually on the game in the first place.

fun fact, the only player on the current Star-calibur Pens roster to grace the cover is Jarome Iginla

side note: he scored 41 goals that year in the pre-lockout era

NHL 14 is going to be the exact same thing as 13, 12, 11, 10 and 09 with an updated roster and a new menu skin.

Always thought the C and the A were cool on those Flames jerseys.

Yeah, I love the omage to Atlanta with the "A", but man that alternate logo from that era was awful.

Not as bad as the Gorton fisherman.

No, NHL 14 will be just the same as the past four years....

However...they will sprinkle in a few new "modes"..... I'm sure they'll bring back Winter Classic Modes with options to play in all the various cities.


They do this to cover up the fact that they've not really improved the game enough to make a difference and only the serious gamer's notice and will give a damn.

They need competition in order to earn praise. They can shove all those "awards" somewhere in their crotch.... I'd swear their programmers have never played hockey before.

I think the improvements in 09 or 10 actually made it better and they've actually been going backwards(albeit slightly, no real major changes) since then. I have no interest in buying another NHL game though. I'm thinking 15 maybe, I last bought 12. My new plan is to alternate every 3-4 years with FIFA, NBA, NHL games, getting one each year.

Simmonds can barely skate let alone be considered an elite talent.
