WHILE THE Phillies' ruling triumvirate has given itself plenty of votes of confidence during the organization's 3-years-and-counting swan dive, it has yet to offer a compelling reason to believe that its long-term plan involves anything more comprehensive than a new scouting director and a click of the heels. Granted, the public equivocations of David Montgomery, Pat Gillick and Ruben Amaro Jr. are not definitive evidence of the absence of such a plan. They have their stadium and their cable contract, and thus little motivation to sell the public on their blueprint for the future.

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.

WASHINGTON - Shortly after nothing happened, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. promised something was going to happen. "I don't see a scenario right now where our roster is going to be the same roster in April that it is right now," Amaro said Thursday after baseball's non-waiver trade deadline expired without the Phillies making a single move. "It will change. It will need to change because we need to get better. " There are not many things you could get Phillies fans to agree with Amaro about during these dark days, but the idea that his last-place ball club needs to make changes is definitely one they'd be on board with.

NEW YORK - Just before ducking into the visiting radio booth yesterday morning - a half-hour before the matinee with the Mets and about 29 hours before today's trade deadline - Ruben Amaro Jr. spotted a couple of reporters. The Phillies general manager playfully raised his eyebrows and rubbed his hands together, as if he was hatching a secret plan. The details of that (imaginary?) plan is the great mystery, of course, as Amaro declined comment twice before his team wrapped up a three-game series at Citi Field.

SO THIS IS how it ends. With a whimper, not a bang. All summer long, and really, late in the spring, today was the day that it all could restart for the Phillies. They would trade that core they held onto for too long, pay off chunks of those big salaries Ruben Amaro Jr. awarded to the aging, homegrown guys and the long-in-tooth veterans he collected and valued like an antiques collector collects and values old lamps. And the refurbishing project long anticipated and long delayed would begin in earnest.

NEW YORK - If today is going to be a defining day in the life of this Phillies' organization, nobody has told the players. They dressed in silence yesterday afternoon, some of them fiddling with their smart phones, most of them making a quick exit to the bus. All 25 eventually boarded. Next stop: Washington. The Phillies Express rolled on. The truth is they are immune to it by now, this chatter about buyers and sellers and no-trade clauses. Most of them have been through enough losing Julys to understand that very little ever really changes.

RYAN HOWARD is leaving the Philadephia area. No, he hasn't been traded (as of this writing, although today is the trade deadline). But there is a sale pending on his house in Blue Bell. It's no secret the Phillies' first baseman is in the process of building a 17,500-square-foot mansion in Belleair Shore, Fla. Pictures of the beachfront mansion, which reportedly will have a "lazy river" and a bowling alley, make the 8,900-square-foot home in the Philly suburbs look like a shack.

NEW YORK - There were 47 hours until Thursday's trade deadline when Marlon Byrd emerged Tuesday evening for Phillies batting practice. He sang along to the Cure, announcing his presence even though he was not in the lineup. That, especially at this time of year, can signal a trade. "Really?" a coy Ryne Sandberg said. "No, no. Not at all. " Byrd, Sandberg said, fouled a ball off his left foot during his four-hit performance Monday. It was the second time in a few days the outfielder nicked that foot.

After a low, growling storm rolled through South Philly on Wednesday evening, bringing a temporary halt to the game between the Phillies and Giants, the end of the rain delay and the resumption of play was punctuated but not affected by several nearby lightning strikes and the loudest thunder of the night - not to mention most of the rain. That didn't impress the umpiring crew enough to signal for another delay, however - getting the Phillies' season into the books as quickly as possible is everyone's desire at this point - but it did provide a couple of handy metaphors for what has taken place in Citizens Bank Park and elsewhere this year.

JUST AS the Phillies once made a play for CC Sabathia and ended up with Joe Blanton one summer, and zeroed in on Roy Halladay before trading for Cliff Lee instead the next, major league teams with visions of David Price and Cole Hamels dancing in their heads will likely have to settle for a more gettable starting pitcher before next week's trade deadline. A.J. Burnett fits the description of that kind of very available and very useful starting pitcher. Burnett, 37, has postseason experience - he beat the Phillies in a World Series game 5 years ago. He has a somewhat manageable, short-term contract.
