We Didn't Get an NHL Season for Christmas; Thank God for the World Junior Championships

Posted by on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 2:43 PM

Yesterday was a sad day. It was supposed to be the day the Leafs played the Red Wings in the sixth annual Winter Classic, but nope—it was canceled back in November, and the NHL lockout continues. But there has been some action—the NHL and the NHL's Player's Association are going back and forth, which could mean they're getting closer and closer to finally agreeing on a proposal. It could also mean they are just going back and forth and will ultimately still not agree on anything. Sad face.

ANYWAY! With the NHL still MIA, some comfort can be found in the World Junior Championships, which are coming to an end this weekend. I know very little about the players, but they've still been fun to watch mostly because there is some NW pride (Seth Jones from the Portland Winterhawks is on Team USA), and there is a younger Subban (P.K.'s little brother Malcolm is goalie for Team Canada).

And speaking of Team USA and Team Canada, the two face off in a semifinal game tonight at 12:30 am PST. I'm totally gonna stay up for it. The whole TV schedule is here.

In other hockey news, there's this:

"My cat doesn't meow, he Lemieuxs." HA!

I miss hockey.

The NHL channel on Comcast is also showing the games. That's where I have been watching them. 631 HD, and I think 417 regular.

I have NHL Network on 419, and they are showing the game at 1am, and repeating it at 2:30 pm tomorrow.

Megan, you are hard core posting this. The World Juniors have been my fix for the last week.

@1 and 4: Yes! Everyone's right. I've been watching on the NHL Network, with Comcast cable. And if you don't have cable, go to Angry Beaver—they have really great poutine!

The WJCs are great and the Canada -U.S. game will have all the drama a hockey fan could ask for. Two very, VERY good teams: should be one hell of a match.

Wait, I mean BOO USA, Team Canada's gonna smear the ice with yer lousy, third-rate wannabes and Megan's gonna cryyyy! HAW HAW HAW HAW America sux!

When is the point that we give up on this season? I love hockey and have been so bummed this year with no NHL. But as more than half of the games have been cancelled, I now would think that a Stanley Cup champ coming from a severely shortened season is meaningless. To survive the cup playoffs, after a grueling season is what makes lifting the cup so impressive. Any champ this year should have an asterisk next to their name.

Good for the US. Can't believe Canada fell in the semi-finals again this year.
