Dan Boyle thinks that only a select group of owners that are pushing the lockout forward.
Only eight of 30 NHL owners need to vote against a CBA proposal for it to be vetoed, which fuels Boyle's suspicions. "I think when players make comments, sometimes it's directed towards 30 owners, but I think a lot of us feel that it's not across the board. It's a certain group of teams that are controlling 30 others," Boyle said. "It doesn't make any sense to me that eight teams can control the fate of 22 other ones." The NHL canceled the first two weeks of the regular season on Thursday.
