In today's edition, we have two fans with opposing views on who's to blame for the NHL lockout. Which opinion most closely resembles your own?
With the NHL officially cancelling games through Nov. 30, plus the Winter Classic, CBCSports.ca has been helping give fans a voice.

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.

First up, a comment from CBCSports.ca user SK_2012:

"Let's put this in perspective, the player as the employees and the owners are the employers. When the employees start dictating to the employers how things should be then you have a problem.

I say fire the losers and give contracts to the farm team players. Let the over-paid whiners sit out a season or two (make it three) while their replacements get the visibility.

Enough is enough, you are not happy then go play overseas or sit out a few seasons while your skills rot."


And here is the response from CBCSports.ca user Do Sumpin:

I'd love to have about 50 employees just like you. I could hire them for $30 an hour and a week later tell them they're only going to get $20 and everyone will just say "fine".

Remember, this is a lockout not a strike. If the company is making skads of money, why should you be expected to surrender your contract and take a lot less pay than you were promised?
