Boyle Faces Old Team

from Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle,

Threatened with the possibility of getting dumped on a last-place team if he didn’t comply, Boyle waived his no-trade clause to come to San Jose, but he felt betrayed because he had agreed to a $40 million contract extension to stay in Tampa earlier in the year. So pardon Boyle if he doesn’t have the fondest of feelings for his former club, which he will face tonight at HP Pavilion.

“It was pretty ugly, to be honest,” Boyle said. “I’d just signed there for six years, they told me a lot of things, and then a lot of stuff was done behind my back.”

Said teammate Jeremy Roenick: “The wrist thing and the way that team treated Dan left a bad taste in his mouth. The spat he had with the owners - I think he really wants to win the Cup and shove somebody’s nose in it.”
