Hockey fans across the country were looking forward to Saturday, Oct. 13. It was supposed to be the first Hockey Night in Canada of the regular 2012-2013 NHL season. (The first day of regular season games would have been Thursday, Oct. 11.)

But, as every fan worth their Habs (or Leafs or Canucks) jersey knows, the NHL season is currently postponed, as owners and players struggle to make progress in collective bargaining talks.

As CBC Sports' Justin Piercy points out, Canadian fans will be missing out on all sorts of fun: the rivalries, the all-Canadian matchups, even finding out where Roberto Luongo will end up.

One option for hockey fans is to head over to the Hockey Night in Canada website for the chance to vote every Saturday on which of five memorable games from different eras they'd like to see.

But we want to hear from you, members of the CBC Community. How do you feel about the missing games? Will your Saturday nights be the same without live NHL hockey?
