Default Dion Phaneuf is the NHL 09 cover athlete

http://www.pastapadre.com/2657/dion-...-cover-athlete

"The Calgary Sun has revealed that Dion Phaneuf of the Calgary Flames will be the cover athlete for NHL 09. The first news on the game was released the other day however the cover remained a mystery until now. Apparently EA Sports has chosen Phaneuf, a defenseman, to spotlight the improvements that have been made to checking and defensive plays.

As one of the top-scoring defencemen in the NHL, as well as being widely regarded as the league’s hardest hitter, Phaneuf was deemed the perfect choice for this year’s version of the game, which will feature more realistic checks and deeper defensive controls.

NHL 09 will also feature a new tutorial mode to teach players not only the game’s controls, but hockey strategies in general. Littman said it’s a way of helping newcomers get into the action without dumbing down the game for veteran players."

Phaneuf was a good choice but not the best, I am assuming they had this in the works before the cup was played out and they usually dont pick a player in the cup, 07 was Ovechkin this years was Stall, but as a homer I would have liked to see a Pen on the front of the game :( . I cant wait for the game to come out either way, hockey is a much more edge of your seat and better to watch game than any other sport and that goes for the video game as well, 09 should be off the wall!

they picked phanueff because he fits the new features towards the gameplay (more realistic hits; lifting sticks; better stick control and loos like there is a dump button(s) meaning i can now pull off the "murphy" dump), i thougt it would have been a good idea to put like datsyuk/zetterberg or crosby/malkin depending on who won the cup but i think phanueff is a good pick he is a good young defenseman

gamers in Russia and Sweden get native sons Ovechkin and Alfredsson.
Ovechkin was on NHL 07. Malkin hasn't been on a cover. and I see nothing wrong with Alfi in sweden.
