A few words from the new owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Jeff Vinik. He confirms that GM Brian Lawton and head coach Rick Tocchet have both been fired. More on this as information becomes available.

Tampa Bay Lightning loses to Pittsburgh Penguins 4-1

And while a tongue-lashing from GM Brian Lawton is making all the news, I can safely say Club Two Minutes is alive and well after some of the referee antics during this one. Captain Vincent Lecavalier extended his goalless streak to 14 games, and left wing Alex Tanguay increased his to 10. The Bolts will be off until Thursday, and expect potential changes to the roster makeup before then...

Captain Vinny Lecavalier sticking with Tampa Bay Lightning, GM Brian Lawton says

"Though Lecavalier's agent Kent Hughes said Saturday he had not spoken to Lawton, he welcomed the sentiment he has been trying to get out of Tampa Bay for a while." So my question is this: if Lawton truly has no intentions of trading Vinny, then why didn't he bother giving private assurances of that fact to Vinny and his agent when they asked for them? My guess - and it is only a guess - is that it's because Lawton is unable to find any takers for Lecavalier and his contract extension at this time, so he can say something like that and probably mean it. That doesn't mean that Vinny won't be traded if another team is interested after all, though.

Koules still calling the Shots (TBO)

Breaking from Erik at the Trib: Koules to remain in control of the Lightning, and Lawton in control as GM. More to come I would assume, and from other sources, regarding Len Barrie and the fate of team captain Vincent Lecavalier
