The players have been vocal throughout the lockout and a lot of the time they’ve either expressed their support of the union or bashed the league’s positions. However, with the hope of us getting a full 82-game season all-but completely gone, Dan Boyle expressed his frustration with the whole process.
That wouldn’t be an uncommon sentiment if it was coming from a fan, but for a player to speak out against both sides is rare.
Boyle is 36, so his impressive career is winding down and he only has two seasons left on his six-year, $40 million contract with the San Jose Sharks.
Of course, there are plenty of other players that are putting the blame squarely at the owners’ feet.
