In Tuesday's edition of Fan's Comment of the Day, one CBCSports.ca user gives his plan for the future of hockey: no NHL. Instead, he suggests a hockey 'Super League'.
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 Tuesday's Fan Comment of the Day from CBCSports.ca user WillieHuber:
 
"This is so easy. Given the existing professional hockey structure in Europe, set up a World Super League made up of NHL players and existing European players.

The Super League will have two divisions- one in Europe and one in Canada. The top European division will be made up of cities from Sweden, Finland, Russia, Germany, etc that have large arenas and populations. The Canadian division will be made up of current NHL cities, plus Hamilton, Quebec City, and Windsor (for Detroiters). The remaining European teams and Canadian minor league teams make up the second and third tiers of each division and we institute relegation and no salary caps.

Its better for hockey in Europe and it captures 75% of the North American market (Canada + Detroit). Between cable and opening the Euro television market, there will probably be more money for the Super League."
