Lecavalier, team deny trade rumors
But they will admit there was tension between the center and coach John Tortorella.

Bucs
Abraham demotion a wakeup call for all
Coincidence or not, the Bucs reacted to the shakeup with a big win.

Calm waters wrap up championships
The overall winners had been determined a day earlier so the only surprise on the closing day of the world disabled sailing championships was the weather. After a week of punishing winds and white-capped waves, the wind and waves moderated to provide a classic fall day of racing on Tampa Bay.

Outdoors
Daily fishing report
Water temperatures on flats in the North Suncoast area have taken a dive. This week the gauge read 65 degrees near Honeymoon Island. Though this is not necessarily too cold for good fishing, most fish need time to get over the shock of a 10-degree drop. Trout, redfish and especially snook will be slow to feed for a few days until they feel more comfortable.

Golf
Lots of cash, little fanfare
The Tour Championship brings the rich together, but not much else matters.

St. Petersburg Catholic and Osceola, a combined 14-3 this season, will face off in the Time Warner Bowl, which will be broadcast live on TV.
