Why doesn't IIHF give the TV rights to ESPN or ESPN2?

I do think a World Cup would be closer to that than the World Hockey Championship though.
If played mid-season, the World Cup would have as many declines as the World Championships. I think
to have 1-2 weeks off mid-season to heal injuries, rest, etc.
