NHL 13 Cover Vote: 15 Players Who'd Be Better Than Pekka Rinne/Claude Giroux

Back in the summer of 2011, the NFL gave fans the opportunity to decide who would grace the cover of the very popular "Madden" video game.

The idea ended up being a successful one, and the NHL has decided to do the same this year for "NHL 13," due out on September 11, 2012.

Two players from each NHL team were chosen, and the fans would submit their votes as to who they thought was most deserving of the cover.

After months of voting, only two remain, and those two are Philadelphia Flyers' winger Claude Giroux and Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne.

Giroux finished third in the league with 93 points, while Rinne led all goaltenders with 43 wins this past season.

Giroux is looking to become the first Flyer to make the cover since Eric Lindros in 1999, and Rinne could be the first goaltender on the cover since John Vanbiesbrouck in 1997.

As deserving as these two players may be, there are a few players out there that are more deserving of the coveted prize.

If there was not a fan vote for the cover, one of these 15 players may have been chosen instead.
