LAST SUMMER, Paul Holmgren put all his eggs in one basket, going after Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, who both landed in Minnesota on dual $98 million deals. The Flyers had no apparent Plan B. This summer, Holmgren took a stab at the biggest free agent on the market. Apparently, his wait-and-see approach paid off. Somehow, Vincent Lecavalier will be a Flyer for the next five seasons. Lecavalier shocked the hockey world yesterday by choosing Philadelphia over Dallas, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, Boston, St. Louis, Washington, Anaheim, Vancouver and Calgary.

CHICAGO - When Rocky Wirtz took over the Chicago Blackhawks 6 years ago, they were among the worst teams in the NHL. Fast forward to yesterday, when the owner mingled with fans and friends hours after the Blackhawks flew home with the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons. It's been quite the turnaround, and the 60-year-old Wirtz thinks there is more to come. "I think we're going to see a lot of good years ahead of us," he said. It sure looks that way. Unlike in 2010, when the title-winning team underwent changes because of salary-cap issues, the Blackhawks will be able to bring back many of their top players next season when they try to become the first repeat Stanley Cup winner since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998.

JAROMIR JAGR is a scholar. At Tuesday's morning skate, Jagr twirled around the Wells Fargo Center ice for the first time since leaving Philadelphia last summer and took up his familiar post at the Bruins' white board. There, he diagrammed plays for linemates Chris Kelly and Carl Soderberg, something that was a welcomed staple during his 1-year stint with the Flyers. "Everything in his life revolves around hockey," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. Jaromir Jagr is also an economist.

HAVE ANY of the professional sports teams in Philadelphia suffered the fast free fall that the 76ers have over the past 11 months? During that time, the team came within one win of advancing to the Eastern Conference final, blew up the roster via buyout, free agency and trade, acquired a player whom many considered one of the top two centers in the NBA, lost that player for the season because of injury, failed to make the playoffs and now lost...

THE PLAYER who cost the organization much of its future in a trade last summer didn't play one game and recently had surgery on two deteriorating knees. He becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1. There is not much room under the salary cap, perhaps about $12-13 million, to try to make a splash in free agency. The draft pick will be just out of the top 10, in a draft that is filled with players who appear to be peripheral pieces, not ones to build a team around. There could be some front-office moves and now, as of Thursday morning, 76ers owner Josh Harris is heading a group to find a new head coach.

SIMON GAGNE is not old - by sport or society standards - at age 33. Yet, after 794 NHL games and 109 Stanley Cup playoff games, there are days when his body betrays him. He has endured at least four career concussions, groin injuries, a double hernia repair and a scary surgery to remove a 2-inch bony mass in his neck. "You wake up and you feel it," Gagne said. "You look at all of the stuff you have gone through - the playoffs, all the games you've had to play, all of the injuries, the surgeries.

DANNY BRIERE was not back in the Flyers lineup Thursday night against his hometown Ottawa Senators, still hampered by a concussion that caused him to miss his 10th consecutive game. Briere, 35, is likely to return Saturday in Buffalo, where he will have eight games remaining to salvage a career-worst season. They may be the last eight games of his tenure in Philadelphia. Briere has five goals and eight assists in 26 games. He missed time at the start of the season with a hairline fracture in his wrist, suffered in Germany during the NHL lockout.

It was exciting to see the Eagles make a big splash on the first day of NFL free agency, especially since it was Nnamdi Asomugha being thrown overboard. Hey, at least he made contact. The Eagles will pay Asomugha $4 million not to play for them in 2013 and that is the best bargain general manager Howie Roseman could have made. There are two ways to make your team better, and subtraction is the easy one. It is the addition part that gets tricky, as Asomugha's two-year display of ineffectiveness demonstrated.

The San Francisco 49ers have acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title last season, must pass a physical to complete the deal. The Ravens announced the trade Monday. Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. The 32-year-old Boldin had said he'd consider retirement rather than leave Baltimore. But going to the NFC champions might change his mind.

A DAY BEFORE Tuesday's start of free agency, two of the NFL's top wide receivers were traded. Baltimore sent Anquan Boldin to San Francisco, and Minnesota shipped Percy Harvin to Seattle. The 49ers acquired Boldin for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title, must pass a physical to complete the deal. Boldin, 32, had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers.
