Ever seen Alex Ovechkin's commercial for Mr. Big chocolate bars or Eastern Motors? One fan wonders why Ovy doesn't share his endorsement income with NHL owners in today's Fan's Comment of the Day.
With the NHL lockout now in double-digit days, CBCSports.ca wants to help give fans a voice.

So until the game we love returns, we'll highlight one fan's take on the lockout each day from the posts we've received on Facebook, Twitter and the comments sections on CBCSports.ca.

Here is Monday's Fan Comment of the Day from Scott Van Slyck via Facebook:
 
"I had an epiphany today... the players want to share in all hockey related revenues... players, do you share your endorsement or commercial money with the owners?!? You're paid to do a job, you get a salary to play...

I'd love a share of my companies profits too but guess what? It doesn't work that way... take your salary and let the owners make their money off tickets, merchandise and concessions... otherwise be prepared to cough up your cash from Gillette..."
