Wow Malkin got beat out eh? Well I guess I'm voting for Giroux. Don't really care about Rinne really...

Very surprised Giroux beat out Malkin. I want a goalie on the cover, so Rinne gets my votes

Rinne gets my vote. It's time to have a goalie on the cover! Giroux can have it next year.

Claude. I still spite Pekka Rinne after the Preds/Wings series...
# 8 Chad0034 @ 05/29/12 04:04 PM
wow I thought Giroux was going to be a no-brainer, but it looks like a lot of people want Rinne on the cover. Claude gets my vote though.

Go Rinne make all goalies professional or not happy! Could be the first goalie on the cover since Vanbiesbrouck in 97. Would be pretty cool if he wins since he never gets enough credit in real life for how good he is.

I have to pick Giroux that Philadelphia jersey is SICK!

Pretty sure most of Canada is voting for Giroux. They're probably the ones who got him past Malkin.
