SI.com's Brian Cazeneuve has some special wishes for 2013 to bestow upon notable NHL players and people:

On behalf of all hockey fans, here's hoping for the day when they can shake hands on a mission completed -- if not a job well done, then at least a negotiation finalized. And beyond that, here's to labor peace for a game that deserves better than three work stoppages in less than two decades. Every time the NHL seems to build momentum off a few exciting seasons that feature emerging stars, successful large markets, unsung heroes, and all the things that make for compelling drama, the league and union aim a slapper right at their own skates. For the good of the game, may they co-exist in peace and prosperity for the foreseeable future.
