The NHL cover vote is rigged just like every cover vote ! How can Lundqvist lose against Rinne ? I have no idea...

Either Nashville's 3 fans voted a million times each, or this is rigged. Don't get me wrong, I love Rinne. I voted for him. But there is no way Nashville fans outweighed New York fans.

The last I saw, yesterday morning, Datsyuk was up 10k to only 2k for Tavares. Wtf happened?

Atta' boy Pekka! I guess Ranger fans were too busy watching their series to vote. Nashville fans had plenty of time to stuff the ballot box since their team was already eliminated.

Giroux or Rinne better win, but I have a feeling it's gonna come down to Malkin and Tavares with Malkin taking the cover.

I hope you're right. I want to have someone from my team on the cover for once!

I may have a slightly biased perspective, but if Datsyuk never makes it on the cover of NHL it should be a crime. Fantastic player and a good person too.

I may use this for a custom cover if Rinne doesn't win:

Spoiler


Real nice mock-up from nashvillepredators.com

Should be Marty Brodeur on the cover when he wins his 4th cup and retires on a high in just over 2 weeks time

If would be a huge upset if Rinne wins. I'm surprised he's managed to make it this far.
