Dan Boyle didn't need to pack any bitterness for this latest return to the city where he won the 2004 Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The owners who all but forced him to waive his no-trade clause are no longer in control. And one of the two -- Len Barrie -- is under criminal investigation for fraud involving his British Columbia development and has been evicted from his mansion near Victoria.

"There was definitely some resentment, some anger," Boyle said Wednesday, recalling his first trip back to Tampa about six months after his July 4, 2008, trade to the Sharks. "But if I look across now, there's not one guy I can be mad at."
