With NHL negotiations making little progress, some fans at the Grey Cup had some fun taking a gentle shot at the state of the hockey league's labour deep freeze, as you can see above.

We posted this picture to Facebook and asked you for input on what the NHL could learn from the lack of CFL labour strife and Monday's fan's comment comes from CBC Sports Facebook fan Mark Hermann, who had this to say:

"Great sign, good for a laugh, but you can't compare the two sports entertainment businesses. One is operated on shoe-string budgets where the majority of the players have off-season employment, and fans really matter to owners and players , the other as we all know has billionaire owners and multimillionaire players - with egos to match - fans do not enter into the equation, as long as we keep buying their $15 burgers and $10 beer and $25 parking."
