Not wanting to alter a winning formula - the Flyers lead the NHL with 40 victories - general manager Paul Holmgren did not make any major moves at the NHL trade deadline on Monday afternoon. The players, predictably, liked the fact Holmgren did not deal anyone off the current roster. "We've been playing extremely well all year, and we're pretty confident with the group of guys that's in here," center Blair Betts said after a tough practice in Voorhees. "There's a lot of good chemistry, and sometimes, you just don't want to mess with it. " Holmgren did make a minor deal just before the 3 p.m. deadline, acquiring 6-foot-5, 228-pound left winger Tom Sestito from Columbus for two prospects, forwards Michael Chaput and Greg Moore (seven goals for Adirondack)

The Flyers and the Toronto Maple Leafs no doubt will spend the next several days exchanging recriminations. Meanwhile, concussion-plagued Eric Lindros sits, untraded. The NHL trade deadline is March 13. Where does Lindros go, and where do the Flyers go, from here? Probably nowhere new, in the short term. Lindros adviser Gord Kirke said there would be no change, for now, in Lindros' position that he wants to be traded only to his hometown Leafs. And last night, Carl Lindros, Eric's agent and father, added, "It's not over yet. " Even Flyers general manager Bob Clarke - who denounced Kirke and Leafs coach/general manager Pat Quinn with gusto yesterday - would not close the door on a deal with the Leafs, because he knows that until Lindros expands his list of acceptable destinations, there will be only one suitor.

John LeClair and Simon Gagne joined the team as scheduled, and both should play tonight for the Flyers against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Officially, Flyers coach Bill Barber hasn't said LeClair and Gagne will play, but that has been the clear indication from others around the team. And the Flyers yesterday returned to the Phantoms Derek Plante and Michel Picard, who were called up during the flurry of injuries. LeClair has been out since Dec. 8 with what turned out to be a postsurgical staph infection in his back.

It's a good thing Ryan Potulny was nominated for the Hobey Baker Award this season, because he won't be around for his senior season at the University of Minnesota. The 6-foot, 192-pound junior center, a third-round draft pick of the Flyers in 2003, agreed to a two-year contract worth $1.6 million yesterday. The 21-year-old Potulny won't win the Hobey Baker Award, either. Even though he made the original cut list, he was not among the finalists announced this week: Denver defenseman Matt Carle, Boston College forward Chris Collins and Wisconsin goaltender Brian Elliott.

It's that fun-filled time again in hockey. With the March 13 NHL trade deadline approaching, the rumor mills are churning. One rumor yesterday, according to agents and NHL front-office staffers, involved Flyers goalie Brian Boucher. Atlanta general manager Don Waddell is looking for a goalie. He hasn't been able to land Nikolai Khabibulin from Phoenix. But Waddell has spoken to Flyers GM Bob Clarke about Boucher, according to a source in the Thrashers' organization. Clarke said no. Boucher's name reportedly is popping up in several places, including Montreal.

A dozen years, that's how many times Marty Brodeur has won 30 or more games. Without question, the New Jersey Devils' goalie has been the best of his generation . . . Ottawa's recent acquisition of forward Cory Stillman and defenseman Mike Commodore looks like a steal, with Joe Corvo and Patrick Eaves going to Carolina. Stillman played important roles in Tampa Bay's and Carolina's winning Stanley Cup titles. Great move by the Senators. Even though Stillman and Commodore will be unrestricted free agents at season's end, these two guys could make a difference if the Sens get things turned around.

The New York Rangers solved their problems at center in a big way yesterday, signing Scott Gomez and Chris Drury away from Eastern Conference rivals on the first day of free agency. Just hours after the summer shopping season opened, the Rangers landed two of the biggest-name available centers - plucking Gomez from Atlantic Division-foe New Jersey and Drury from the Buffalo Sabres, the team that knocked New York out in the second round of this spring's Stanley Cup playoffs. Gomez signed a 7-year deal with the Rangers worth $51.5 million - including $10 million next season.

Michael Peca finally will get a chance to play hockey this season. Could Eric Lindros be far behind? Peca, the unsigned Buffalo Sabres restricted free agent, has agreed to represent Canada at next month's World Hockey Championships in Hanover, Germany. Now, Team Canada executive Lanny McDonald is turning his attention to Lindros, also a restricted free agent who rejected an $8.5 million qualifying offer from the Flyers last summer and has missed the season demanding a trade.

He seldom does it, but when he does, it seems the Flyers almost always score. Defenseman Eric Desjardins zoomed down the right side late in the third period of the Flyers' 6-3 victory over the Maple Leafs last night. Desjardins' pass from deep in the corner to Mikael Renberg at the crease was perfect, and Renberg netted it for the goal that gave the Flyers a 5-3 lead with 5:19 left, providing breathing room in what had been an up-and-down game. Teammates say Desjardins, who doesn't have a tremendous point shot, could score a lot more points if he weren't so responsible.

As tomorrow's 3 p.m. NHL trade deadline nears, it becomes increasingly difficult to decipher fact from fantasy. Fact: The Flyers have some interest in a variety of defensemen and forwards. Fantasy: The Flyers are willing to trade Mikael Renberg to Toronto for goalie Felix Potvin. Fact: Tampa Bay general manager Phil Esposito called Flyers GM Bob Clarke late last week to ask whether he'd be interested in Dino Ciccarelli, who met with Esposito on Wednesday to discuss his future, if any, with the Lightning.

Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds doesn't want first-year general manager Ron Hextall to make any deals before the 3 p.m. trade deadline Monday. Truth be told, Hextall can't make any major moves unless he unloads some hefty salaries because the Flyers are close to the $69 million salary-cap limit. "I like the team we have," Simmonds said. "We've been playing pretty well. . . . Everyone likes each other, and if we can succeed, as is, I think that would be great. But I'm not the general manager, and I can't say what goes on. " The Flyers, crippled by a 9-17-6 road record, have 19 games left and are six points behind Boston for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

WHEN PAUL HOLMGREN hung up his phone for the final time on Wednesday afternoon, business having been concluded at the NHL trade deadline, there was an overwhelming feeling of contentment in the Flyers' front office. The thinking was that this crop has earned the right to enter the final 6-week sprint toward the Stanley Cup playoffs as an already-assembled band of brothers. Why fix something that isn't broke? The Flyers had won six of their seven games before the deadline. They already have set a franchise record for most third-period comebacks (11)

HOMER IS on the clock. Two weeks after Sam Hinkie gutted most of the remaining fiber of the woeful 76ers, 3 weeks after Ruben Amaro Jr. flew to Florida with his fingers and toes crossed, it is Paul Holmgren's turn to restore our lost confidence - or relinquish any that remains. Howie Roseman? He made some nice re-signings last week, but his next big splash will come with the NFL draft in early May. This week belongs to the Flyers general manager who, like Amaro, has been toasted and roasted by fans over a tenure that is now in its eighth season.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren continued to work the phones Monday, looking for ways to improve his surging team before Wednesday's 3 p.m. trade deadline. That said, Holmgren is happy with the team he has assembled. The Flyers have gone 31-17-6 since their franchise-worst 1-7 start and are on their best roll of the season. They overcame a 4-2 third-period deficit Sunday in Washington and jolted the Capitals in overtime, 5-4, to register their sixth win in the last seven games.

THIS SEASON wasn't much fun in New York for slumping forward Marian Gaborik. He wasn't scoring goals the way he was used to, and he and his Rangers teammates found themselves in an unexpected fight just to get into the playoffs. So in a swift move Wednesday, just before the NHL trade deadline, Gaborik was shipped to the Columbus Blue Jackets in the biggest deal of the day. Gaborik was traded for center Derick Brassard, injured right wing Derek Dorsett, defenseman John Moore and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft.

PAUL HOLMGREN is not very fond of the NHL's trade deadline. Last year, on Feb. 27, hockey's annual frenzy came and went without the Flyers actively participating. The Flyers general manager made his moves in the weeks prior, adding Nick Grossmann and Pavel Kubina. The year before last, on Feb. 28, 2011, the Flyers barely snuck a trade under the 3 o'clock wire with Tom Sestito joining the crew from Columbus. For as much as there is a perception of the Flyers making franchise-altering trades at the deadline, there have only been two since 2000: Dan Carcillo for Scottie Upshall in 2009 and nearly an entire draft's worth of picks in 2002 for playoff rental Adam Oates.

THE NEW YORK Rangers certainly had interest in top forward Rick Nash, they just weren't going to break up a successful team to pry him away from the Columbus Blue Jackets. After weeks of speculation and rumor, the Eastern Conference leaders stood pat yesterday and let the NHL trade deadline pass without meeting the high demands of the Blue Jackets - a club that is last in the league that was trying to score a huge return in exchange for its captain. "They've played very well," Rangers general manager Glen Sather said of his club.

SAN JOSE - When the Flyers' skates hit the ice at HP Pavilion today at noon local time, the final trade calls of the season will be trickling into league headquarters across the country in New York. You can bet that the NHL Network will have the Flyers' full attention as they gear up in their dressing room in the bowels of the arena, with some players having broken a sweat before even making it to the ice. And some players in the Flyers' room will look sluggish, having had a restless night of sleep on the eve of hockey's annual Monday holiday.

The players always know first. They don't always say it as clearly as Kimmo Timonen did Saturday afternoon, but they always know whether their team has what it takes to compete for a championship. The Flyers' 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers signified more than two points for the Eastern Conference's top team. It was a game that underscored the gap between these two teams. More than that, this gap almost certainly means the Flyers, as constituted, are not contending for the Stanley Cup this year.
