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.

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 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.

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.

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.

MINNEAPOLIS - Chase Utley sat in the dugout at Miller Park in Milwaukee last week before pregame batting practice and was asked a rather simple question: "Eleven months ago, this team wasn't playing well and you wanted to stay here anyway, re-signing with the Phillies rather than testing free agency in a few short months," the reporter started. "You wanted to stick around. Has your stance changed?" "No," Utley said. "That's still the case. " Not surprisingly, Utley's stance hasn't changed in the last week, either.

Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon made news last week in Milwaukee when he said he would welcome a trade to a contender. Papelbon hasn't backed off those comments, but there is an addendum. He was asked Sunday how he would feel if he was still with the Phillies after the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. "I would be happy," Papelbon said before a 10-3 loss to the Washington Nationals at Citizens Bank Park. "I am pretty indifferent on the whole situation. " Papelbon, who has a 1.21 ERA and is 22 for 24 in save opportunities, said there are positives to staying or departing.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is in the same difficult situation as many of his counterparts in baseball, not knowing whether to buy or to sell by the July 31 trade deadline. The Phillies entered the weekend 61/2 games out of first place in the National League East and 51/2 games out of a wild-card spot with 98 games remaining. Amaro was encouraged by the three-game sweep over San Diego, but he understands it will take more to convince him that the Phillies are contending than defeating a Padres team that entered the weekend with the third-worst record in baseball.

IF YOU'RE LUCKY, you spend your peak seasons with the same team peaking with you, contending every year, winning a championship or two even. If you're really lucky, you're Jimmy Rollins, playing your entire career with that same team, chasing cool team records, assuring iconic status in your adopted town long after your playing days are over. And if you are neither of these . . . well, then, you're Cliff Lee. One of two things was going to happen for Cliff Lee this season. One was that he would play a key part in a surprising season by the Phillies and their veteran core.

When the Phillies were mustering up for another postseason run near the trade deadline in 2010, they needed to put a starting pitcher in the trade package to the Houston Astros for Roy Oswalt. The Astros were looking to get younger - and looking to shave some salary, which goes hand in hand - and the choices weren't all that many. Houston could go after J.A. Happ, Vance Worley, or Kyle Kendrick. That was the inventory in stock. Pages fall off the calendar, the Phillies eventually fell off the postseason parade at the end of the 2011 season, and two of the guys who were near the epicenter of that trade with the Astros took the mound Monday night in front of friends and family at Citizens Bank Park.

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.
