08:26 AM ET 12.28 | Should the 2012-13 NHL season evaporate, one date to which fans can look forward is May 3 -- the start of the IIHF World Championship in Helsinki and Stockholm. The United States, which no doubt could have the likes of Zach Parise, Ryan Suter and Ryan Miller among other NHL stars, is in a preliminary group in Helsinki to start the May tournament. ... [Said Miller in an email:] "I hope many of USA hockey's players will see it the same way and be available. I know I would love to be considered to play." "Hockey Canada wants NHL hockey to start ASAP, but if there is no season, Canada will start preparation early to send the best players to Sweden for the men's world championships," Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson told ESPN.com via email Thursday.

Love the announcer.

I've been watching a full slate of hockey these last few days, between the Spengler Cup, the World Juniors and streaming the odd EU and KHL game. I'm getting my fix pretty good now. I must admit, not having to endure the Leafs inept play night after night on our nations sports stations is indeed a Christmas miracle.

It wouldn't have worked in the clip though Spiny.....Kane doesn't have any. I'm sure Schneider knew that.

Yup maybe Timmy will come out of his hibernation to drag the US to Gold.

by "hibernation"...do you mean living in a bunker in Idaho with enough canned goods and ammo to survive the almost certain apocalypse?

As long as he stays out of cabs in Boston, he should be fine
