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.

NEW YORK - Cole Hamels deserved better and he deserves better. After the Phillies put up 22 runs in their previous two games, the offense reverted to its 2015 form in the series finale Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. That meant no run support for the veteran lefthander who, by now, is used to that grim scenario. Hamels was also betrayed by his defense on this otherwise beautiful day in the Bronx. The box score said he allowed five earned runs on eight hits in five innings during the Phillies' 10-2 loss to the New York Yankees.

LESS THAN 48 hours before his scheduled start came up last week, Cole Hamels was scratched. He had a minor hamstring injury, an ailment that was insignificant enough that he was able to throw his normal, in-between starts bullpen session without issue on Sunday, two days after that scheduled start. But Hamels had some fun with his teammates during the period of uncertainty, clearing out his locker. Perhaps they'd think he was traded, Hamels thought, trying a prank to lighten the mood on a team in the middle of a weeklong losing streak.

ON THE DAY he was supposed to take the mound against baseball's best team, only to have his start scratched with a minor right hamstring injury, Cole Hamels said he felt "really good. " He will not go on the disabled list. His eyes nearly rolled out of his head when he was asked - twice - about that possibility yesterday afternoon. Hamels plans to throw his regular, in-between starts bullpen session tomorrow with an eye on rejoining the Phillies' rotation Wednesday afternoon at Yankees Stadium.

COLE HAMELS will take the mound at Citizens Bank Park tonight. But the ticking clock on his Phillies career is growing louder by the day. Major League Baseball's trade deadline is two months from Sunday and the Phillies own the prize of the market. That is, of course, if they decide to trade Hamels at all. "Our hope is, within the time frame his contract is over, that we're back contending again," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said earlier this month about Hamels, whose current contract can keep him in a Phillies uniform through 2019.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Pat Gillick sat back in his chair and considered the hypothetical dilemma. You can have Cole Hamels on your team for as many as 5 more years, including this season. If you wanted to be able to compete as soon as, say, 2017, would you be in better shape with a 33-year-old Hamels on your roster, atop your rotation, or instead with the possible collection of prospects you might get back for him in a trade? "That's a hard question to answer - and I'm not trying to dodge it," Gillick said.

WHILE THERE have been a lot of changes concerning the 76ers this season, no position has been as tumultuous as point guard. Tony Wroten started the season at the position while Michael Carter-Williams recovered from offseason shoulder surgery. When MCW came back, Wroten became his backup until he suffered a season-ending torn ACL. Carter-Williams, of course, was dealt at the NBA trade deadline. Others have manned the position at one time or another, including Alexey Shved, Tim Frazier and Larry Drew.

OKLAHOMA CITY - Another opponent, another model for coach Brett Brown. In the Oklahoma City Thunder, Brown sees an organization he wants his team to emulate. One that has used drafts, free agency and trades wisely to become one of the perennial powers in the rugged Western Conference. Eight of the players on the current roster were gotten by draft, six by trade and one through free agency. Much of the roster that faced the 76ers last night at Chesapeake Energy Arena was gotten just as recently as the trade deadline.

Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds doesn't want first-year general manager Ron Hextall to make any deals before the 3 p.m. trade deadline Monday. Truth be told, Hextall can't make any major moves unless he unloads some hefty salaries because the Flyers are close to the $69 million salary-cap limit. "I like the team we have," Simmonds said. "We've been playing pretty well. . . . Everyone likes each other, and if we can succeed, as is, I think that would be great. But I'm not the general manager, and I can't say what goes on. " The Flyers, crippled by a 9-17-6 road record, have 19 games left and are six points behind Boston for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

BEFORE THE Sixers were turned on their ear yesterday with the trades of Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels, the players went through a workout in preparation for the final 29 games of the season. Despite all the guarded anticipation of the trade deadline, coach Brett Brown was pleased with the way his team shoved all distracting thoughts off to the side. "They just had as good a practice as they've had all year," said Brown. "They are together. Everybody understands the awkwardness of today.
