    Kane and Toews share the NHL 16 cover with the Stanley Cup!! thoughts??

    Both Chicago teammates have already been on an NHL cover previously. Kane for 2010, and Toews for 2011.

    I'd rather see two other people on the cover that have not been on it already.
    I get what they are doing though it ties in with "play together win together." and there
    is no better way of winning than the Stanley cup.

    I'm shocked people are actually complaining about the cover. It's the cover of a video game, that's all. If you don't like it, print out one of the millions of custom covers that comes out for the games and put that over the real cover. Problem solved.

    Edit -- Those rating this Dumb and Disliking it -- Try checking some of my other posts in this thread (post #19 below, for example), they literally outline how to get a high-quality cover for yourself. No need to rate this needlessly ;)

    I don't like it! I don't really care actually but I think other athletes deserve it. Both Kane and Toews have been on it previously. I much prefer this one...

    It looks alright I guess. It makes sense from a marketing standpoint and doesn't look bad, but having two players on the cover really diminishes the effects they can use. (Look at it, all they use for effects is light behind them.) I'm not by any means complaining that neither deserve to be on the cover, because both would be fine, it just doesn't look all that great. Besides, Kane already made it on a cover, it would have been great to see a Toews only cover imo.

    Just why? Why EA, why? You could have put Duncan Keith on the cover and I would be fine with it. You know that if Tampa won the Stanley Cup they would have not put a picture of Stamkos and Johnson lifting it. Plus both Kane and Toews have been on the cover and in back-to-back years. Why not use someone who legitimately deserved it like Benn, Tavares, Keith, Backstrom, Price, even Tanner Glass would have been slightly better for the cover. EA hopped on the bandwagon big time here.

    But seriously, I think it is a marketing thing. They are trying to rebound from the disaster that NHL 15 was so they are going to use the team that has the most fans and use two players for the cover. You know that they want to rebound from the disaster that NHL 15 was.

    Toews was on the cover of NHL 11.

    It's laughable. These guys have already been on an EA cover and that picture makes it even more ridiculous. Well, if I am crazy enough to buy NHL 16 (which is probable), it will be face down on the shelf the whole year. No wonder why there was no cover vote this year. What a ridiculous cover.

    Well put.

    Ok don't kill me here I wasn't a fan of the NHL franchise until 12. ;) (Toews would still be better though, and more deserving this year. Keith would be too.)

    Everyone knows about that stuff, but then since it's regular paper instead of the special stuff it doesn't look as nice, either.

    Still looks better than the real one lol

    I was not thrilled about the cover choice but then again, I don't buy a video game to look at the art cover. Ill get over it.

    If it sells titles, EA would probably do it.

    Take it to Kinkos/FedEX/whatever they call themselves today and get a high-res print on stock paper, they're less than a buck and it looks like a real game cover. I've done it for some of my 'GameStop' cases. Perfectly acceptable.

    I feel like EA could have done a better version
