UPDATE: Jonathan Toews scheduled for The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, tonight.

wow 2 Blackhawks in a row, not sure I like that much, especially as a Flyers fan

Even though Kane was on it last year, I can't think of anybody better to put on the cover.

talk about bull****... where to begin?

With the faceoffs and new checking improvements I guess it made sense to go with a Center. Why not get the top one off of the champs. Besides the game sold like hot cakes with a drunk mullet wearing hooligan that beats up taxi drivers on the front cover. Toews from what I've seen doesn't carry himself like a scumbag off the ice so they shouldn't have that problem this year.

Also note under Overview it says EASHL Dynasties with a all new practice mode and a Banner Raising ceremony if you win a season or something (perhaps custom EASHL arenas?)

Definitely not a bad cover choice, but it is strange that they're going with 2 Blackhawks in a row.

It's so crazy seeing a typical, everyday kid from Winnipeg make it big like this. Makes me proud to be from here lol.

This is a huge let down. 2 blackhawks in a row?
i was hoping halak!

BTW, I wonder if this means there will be an Ultimate Team mode like in Madden and FIFA:

...because last year it was a blackhawk and there are 30 teams

Was expecting Ryan Miller this year, but that just may be the homer in me talking. Oh, well. No use complaining over software packaging.

Interesting that banner raising ceremonies are back. Wonder if they'll be used in Be a GM like in NHL 05-07 last-gen. No other sports game has done anything like that since. It'd be interesting to see something like this again:

same. was hoping to see some orange on the cover
 
# 13 knighthawksfan @ 06/14/10 07:37 PM
well I guess the blackhawks deserve it again. But whatever since the flyers were the suprise of the playoffs. Let's go flyers!!!!!!!!

There are few players I would've picked over Toews to be the cover athlete.

well you can't put Richie on the cover as he's liable to blindside someone in preseason into paralysis, and a lot of people hate Pronger so that's out of the question too.
 
# 16 NoDakHusker @ 06/14/10 07:53 PM
Good to see a former Sioux player on there

You do realize that Pronger was on the cover of NHL 2000?

Blaah I wanted Jordan Staal but that was a pipedream.. I thought it'd be Ryan Miller for sure.. they missed a grand oppurtunity to futher promote the game in the US..
 
# 19 Frost o9 @ 06/14/10 07:57 PM
If I can remember, Eric Lindros was on NHL99 so at least a Flyer has been on the cover. I don't like another Blackhawk on the cover, it's stupid that they picked a player from the same team again.

That line didn't even register with me because I already assumed Ultimate Team was what they were alluding to previously when a "mode borrowed from other games" (can't remember the exact phrasing) was mentioned recently.
Pretty big day altogether whether EA intended it or not.
