I remember reading an article focusing on the Olympics in like September '09 where Timonen mentioned that he doesn't skate during the Summer, but I'm sure he works out.

While Leino has been skating for a while, and most of the other players have already hit the ice, Timonen has barely laced up his skates.

"I've learned over the years that I don't really need to skate yet," he said. "I played with a bunch of friends yesterday and that was the first time I skated since last season."

"I'll wait until I get to Philadelphia in a couple of weeks," Timonen said.
