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.

NEW YORK - If Ruben Amaro Jr. was still on the fence about being a buyer or seller, then Trade Deadline Eve should have helped sway the thinking of the Phillies general manager. Amaro's problem: No general manager in baseball history has ever been able to trade his entire team in one day, and club president David Montgomery and his silent partners probably are willing to eat some of those beefy contracts, but they'd never be willing to swallow the entire $180 million cow. So instead, Amaro hopped on the team charter after the Phillies' latest embarrassing effort - a mind-numbing, 11-2 loss to the New York Mets at Citi Field - and headed for Washington, where this wretched season will continue Thursday night after the 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline has passed.

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 FIRST significant step of the Phillies' rebuilding project that underwent a major facelift in the last week began seven months ago, when franchise icon Jimmy Rollins was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers a week before Christmas. Rollins arrives back at Citizens Bank Park for the first time since the deal tonight. The former MVP, franchise hit king, and longtime ignitor atop the Phillies' lineup is likely in line for a roaring, standing ovation at the 12-year-old ballpark. Despite a rough first season in LA - his .216 batting average is tied for the worst in baseball among 111 qualifying hitters - Rollins has maintained his starting job at shortstop, apparently because the Dodgers value his defense, veteran leadership and experience in a pennant race.

The Phillies already cashed in by far their biggest trade chip in Cole Hamels, but they could still make a lesser move or two before the trade deadline at 4 p.m. Friday. Ben Revere is the most likely candidate to find a new home on the final day for non-waiver trades. The 27-year-old outfielder entered Thursday night's series opener against the Atlanta Braves hitting a team-best .298, and a contending club might find him valuable as a complementary piece for the stretch run. Speaking before Thursday's game at Citizens Bank Park, Revere said he hadn't heard any news of a trade involving him. He has heard his name mentioned as a possible trade chip since the beginning of the season.

When the July 31 trade deadline passed without the Phillies making a single move last season, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. was openly ridiculed. He was accused by rival executives of asking too much for his players, a charge he vehemently denied. "We were not looking for exorbitant paybacks," Amaro said. "We were looking for players that would help us, but I think we were very reasonable in the discussions that we had. Frankly, I don't think the clubs were aggressive enough for the talent we have on our club.

SECONDS AFTER Odubel Herrera sent a walkoff base hit into centerfield, Jonathan Papelbon was the first Phillie to embrace the 23-year-old outfielder in between first and second base, tackling him to the ground with a WWE-style maneuver and playfully punching him in the back. The outspoken reliever took home the win yesterday in the Phillies' 5-4 series finale victory over the Tampa Bay Rays, tossing two shutout innings after replacing Ken Giles in the top of the ninth. Papelbon allowed just one hit, walking one and striking out one. Over the past few weeks, the 34-year-old righty has made it abundantly clear that he would like to be moved to a contender before the July 31 trade deadline.

A week ago Monday, during his now-infamous pre-All-Star Game sound-off regarding his desire to be traded, Jonathan Papelbon was asked if he had pondered the possibility he might be stuck with the Phillies. "Of course," he said that afternoon in Cincinnati. "That thought definitely goes through my mind. Like I said, man, it's one step at a time. I can't think that far ahead. " But as the July 31 trade deadline nears, the possibility lingers that the veteran closer might remain with baseball's worst team until at least the offseason.

Ben Revere isn't like his teammate Jonathan Papelbon, who is openly trying to get out of town, but the Phillies outfielder understands that his address could be changing by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The 27-year-old Revere is hitting a team-leading .299 after going 2 for 4 Sunday in an 8-7 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Since June 3, he leads the majors with a .367 average. Revere is one Phillies trade commodity who has drawn interest. As the deadline moved closer, he was candid when asked before the game if he thinks about the possibility of being traded.

CINCINNATI - Jonathan Papelbon has long voiced his desire to pitch for a contender. That's why, he repeated on Monday, he signed the richest-ever contract for a relief pitcher in November 2011 to join the Phillies, then coming off a 102-win season and boasting a rotation headlined by Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels. On Monday afternoon he found himself in a room with 33 other National League all-stars, every one of them in a better team situation than the outspoken all-star closer for baseball's worst club.

THERE'S AN OLD "Saturday Night Live" skit in which Jon Lovitz, playing Mephistopheles as a defendant on "The People's Court," explains how he could have tricked an 18-year-old beautician into surrendering her soul to him, "by observing only the letter of the agreement. " "I'll give somebody eternal youth," he says. "Then have them sentenced to life imprisonment. " "It's standard . . . I'm the devil. " If Cole Hamels is still a Phillie on Aug. 1, it will be far from a life sentence and his deal will be far from devilish.

SAN FRANCISCO - As the final days before the crucial July 31 trade deadline wear on, the Phillies' front office will continue to discuss, internally, the times at which their tradable assets would garner the most value. For instance, it's conceivable Jonathan Papelbon could prove easier to trade in the winter, when the then-35-year-old closer is likely to be pitching on a one year, $13 million deal. The less salary remaining on Ryan Howard's albatross of a contract, the better chance the Phillies could find a taker for the first baseman, who turns 36 in November.

LOS ANGELES - Severino Gonzalez returns to the rotation tonight and David Buchanan will be back on Saturday. Both are trying to establish themselves as big-league pitchers. Cesar Hernandez, Freddy Galvis and Maikel Franco continue to make the most of their own, first, full-fledged major league opportunities. That's really the point of a last-place team in the middle of an organizational rebuild, giving young players the opportunity to play and seeing whether any of them have staying power.
