Until the NHL returns, we will continue to 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 Wednesday's fan's comment of the day from commenter Northboi in response to Tim Wharnsby's hockey pilgrimage:

"Why do most of us Canadian hockey fans think that it's NHL hockey or bust? It's embarrassing that our university hockey receives next to no coverage on a national level. I realize most of these rinks are old and cold but come on! We're Canadians. We have winter clothes. I'm going to look up schedules and definitely check out a few games in person.

"Maybe more of us will wake up and start supporting all levels of hockey in this country. $60 gets you a seasons pass to watch all U of MB mens and womens sports (including hockey and football). You can see 10 AHL games in prime seats for the price of 1 NHL ticket."
