 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -General manager Jay Feaster made it very clear: the slumping Tampa Bay Lightning don't plan to make any major moves for now.
``I think the answers for right now have to come from within,'' Feaster said Saturday after Tampa Bay lost 4-2 to Philadelphia. ``Certainly until we get the resolution of the sale situation.''
The Lightning's current owner, Palace Sports and Entertainment, has been talking about a potential sale of the franchise to a group led by Los Angeles movie producer Oren Koules.
Tampa Bay (15-21-3) has lost nine of 11, and are six games under .500 for the first time since the end of the 2001-02 season.
Feaster again said the Lightning's ``Big 3'' of forwards Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis and Brad Richards will not be traded.
``That's a non-starter. That's not going to happen,'' Feaster said.
Tampa Bay coach John Tortorella agrees with Feaster's overall assessment.
``There's no help coming,'' Tortorella said. ``This is our mess. We have to figure it out.''
The Lightning open a four-game road trip Tuesday at Toronto. Tampa Bay is 3-13-1 away from home this season.
``It will be a tough,'' Tampa Bay center Brad Richards said. ``Our back is against the wall. It could be good for us. Us against the world mentality. You just wonder when the puck will bounce your way.''
