The New Jersey Devils and the Dallas Stars swung a four-player deal just before yesterday's NHL trade deadline, capping a day in which 17 trades were completed. In all, 35 players were involved. Dallas sent Joe Nieuwendyk and Jamie Langenbrunner to New Jersey for Jason Arnott, Randy McKay, and a first-round draft pick. Boston made three trades, as did the NHL's worst team, Atlanta. Columbus made two. Pittsburgh sent Darius Kasparaitis to Colorado; the New York Rangers acquired Tom Poti and Rem Murray from Edmonton for Mike York; the Montreal Canadiens ended their search for a backup goalie by acquiring Stephane Fiset from the Los Angeles Kings; and the New York Islanders picked up defenseman Darren Van Impe from the Florida Panthers.

INDIANAPOLIS - Over the past week, as today's trade deadline crept closer, 76ers president Rod Thorn has been pestered repeatedly by reporters as to whether his team would be an active participant. Usually his answer has been the same, saying that nothing major appears to be on the horizon. Speaking with Thorn yesterday afternoon, it was pretty much the same, although he did seem to get into a little more detail that makes you think the Sixers might do something before today ends.

If the statistics are any indication, the Eagles didn't have a lot of confidence in their depleted running backs corps yesterday. With Duce Staley missing the first game of his career because of a foot injury, the Eagles ran the ball only 18 times, with the tailbacks getting only 11 carries. The Eagles finished with 79 yards and a 4.4 yards-per-carry average yesterday, but 43 of those yards came from quarterback Donovan McNabb. Now, with Staley out indefinitely and possibly for the season, the Eagles are in a little bit of a jam. The NFL trade deadline is tomorrow at 4 p.m. Coach Andy Reid said he and Tom Modrak, director of football operations, would look at the game film and decide whether additional help was needed.

Who's left to audition for Phillies manager Jim Fregosi in the last two months of the season? Which prospects does he still have questions about? The none-too-surprising answer is nobody. That's why as tomorrow's trades-without-waivers deadline approaches, virtually all Phillies veterans, particularly Terry Mulholland and Benito Santiago, are considered to be available for the right prospects. Other than soon-to-be-promoted third baseman Scott Rolen, the cupboard is bare of players who could help next season.

The 76ers, who weren't especially eager to make a deal before last night's NBA trade deadline, walked away without making one. Did they come close? Sort of. A source close to the situation indicated that the Sixers shopped guard David Wingate, but were unable to drum up any interest. Wingate is currently on the injured list, recovering from soreness in both knees and is believed to have visited a doctor in the Baltimore area. Sixers general manager John Nash would not address a rumor that Wingate had fallen into disfavor with owner Harold Katz.

Make no mistake. New 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has made several eye-popping moves since being hired in May. And what he'll do before the NBA trade deadline at 3 p.m. Thursday will be another defining moment in his short tenure in Philadelphia. The former Houston Rockets executive wants first-round picks in exchange for Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes, and Thaddeus Young. That could be a major problem. Turner and Hawes are in the final seasons of their contracts. Young has another season left, followed by a player option in 2015-16.

The weakest division in the NBA suddenly looks a little stronger, with Antoine Walker back on the Celtics and Chris Webber with the Sixers. The NBA trade deadline passed yesterday with a total of 11 deals involving 35 players being agreed to in the final 24 hours before the cutoff. Baron Davis was traded from New Orleans to Golden State for Speedy Claxton and Dale Davis, Keith Van Horn went from Milwaukee to Dallas for Calvin Booth and Alan Henderson, and Houston acquired several veterans to add to the league's oldest roster.

As the 76ers finished their game-day shoot-around yesterday, the KeyArena clock read 12 noon, the NBA trade deadline on the West Coast. Amazingly, no one disappeared. Allen Iverson was still a Sixer. So was Aaron McKie. Ditto Eric Snow. Billy King, the Sixers' president and general manager, had feverishly worked the phones over much of the last month. He had fielded several calls in the last two days inquiring as to Iverson's availability in light of the all-star guard's rift with interim coach Chris Ford.

The NHL trade deadline is next week and Flyers fans are shaking the team like a snow globe and wondering if there is enough inside to make a decent blizzard once the postseason arrives. Does the team need to add a big defenseman to help evict the rebound and deflection snipers from the crease? Is there a goaltender on the team suitable for the long haul of the playoffs? As for the latter question, Marty Biron did nothing to end the discussion Saturday when he made a poor decision at the end of the game against Pittsburgh and the Flyers took a 5-4 loss in front of the largest regular-season home crowd in team history.

Luke Schenn says he has been comfortable with all of his defensive partners this season, but the Flyers defenseman seems to have developed a quick chemistry with his latest blue-line mate, Andrew MacDonald. Heading into Tuesday night's win over Chicago, Schenn had been paired with MacDonald for five games since his partner was acquired from the New York Islanders before the trade deadline. Schenn is a physical, stay-at-home defenseman, while MacDonald is a smooth skater and a puck carrier.

TORONTO - Say what you will about Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, but the man truly believes in the team he has assembled. Need proof? Consider this: With his job possibly hanging in the balance - if the Flyers miss the playoffs for a second straight year, one wonders if the big boss, Ed Snider, will remain patient - Holmgren only tweaked his roster at the trade deadline. In separate deals, he acquired Andrew MacDonald from the Islanders and dealt Andrej Meszaros to Boston.

ANDREW MACDONALD knew it was coming. After rejecting a 4-year, $16 million contract offer earlier this season, it was only a matter of time before Islanders general manager Garth Snow would find MacDonald a new home. MacDonald just didn't know it would happen Tuesday, a day before the NHL's trade deadline. Or that the call would come while he was enjoying his pregame nap in Winnipeg. Snow woke him up. MacDonald rushed to pack a bag and sprinted to Winnipeg's airport to catch a connecting flight to Philadelphia - where he played his first game as a Flyer in last night's 6-4 victory against the Washington Capitals.

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.

OKLAHOMA CITY - Aside from their decision in June's NBA draft, perhaps the biggest question surrounding the 76ers is: What will they do with Thaddeus Young? Will the team keep the seven-year veteran to provide leadership on a rebuilding team? Or will the Sixers try to package him with one of their newly acquired second-round picks in an offseason trade? Those are legitimate questions, but the answer might not be totally out of the 6-foot-8 power forward's control. Young has averaged 24.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 4 steals in the five games since the trade deadline passed on Feb. 20. If he continues to play at that level, one can only assume that his trade value will be higher than what the Sixers got in return for Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes.

WASHINGTON - General manager Paul Holmgren says he will upgrade the Flyers' defense if the right deal comes along. He is running out of time. The trade deadline is Wednesday at 3 p.m., and the Flyers could use some help on their back end. Winnipeg's Dustin Byfuglien, the Islanders' Andrew MacDonald, Buffalo's Christian Ehrhoff, and Dallas' Trevor Daley are among the defensemen reportedly available. Byfuglien is the most intriguing. Listed as 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds (though there are reports he is much heavier)

Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee's careers became intertwined in 2009 when Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. pursued both of them at the trade deadline.

THE ANSWER, sadly, is none. The question: Which of Philadelphia's four major sports teams is closest to winning a championship? It's an annual question, one that reached a ferocious crescendo around 2008, when it had been 25 years since the city's last title. The Sixers provided the championship that began the drought; then, inexplicably, dismantled themselves. For a generation, the teams went through cycles of respectability, of competitiveness. They built three new arenas and spent nearly as many millions on talent, but, until 2008, still nothing: Three Stanley Cup finals for the Flyers; a World Series glimpse for the 1993 Phillies; an NBA Finals for the 2000-01 Sixers; a Super Bowl for the 2004 Eagles.

HOURS AFTER the Olympic torch in Sochi was stifled on Sunday, the NHL lifted its 16-day roster freeze - despite the fact that quite a few of its players were scrambling back to North America for the season to re-start tonight. The Flyers, who return to action on Thursday night against visiting San Jose, will play just three games before next Wednesday's trade deadline. Yet, if you're hoping for a major transaction to bolster the Flyers into a Stanley Cup contender, general manager Paul Holmgren warned to not hold your breath.

With the trade deadline passed, little suspense remains for the 76ers over their final 26 games. All that's left is a steady slog toward their reckoning with the Ping-Pong balls at the NBA draft lottery in May. Nevertheless, a degree of intrigue surrounded Sunday's practice as the basketball world awaited word on whether Danny Granger would suit up for the Sixers. It's a question that is just as important to the playoff contenders rumored to have interest in the former all-star as it is to the Sixers, who host the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night.
