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.

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)

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The following is a list of the 11 players acquired by three teams when they traded away Cliff Lee in the last 5 years: Jason Knapp, Jason Donald, Carlos Carrasco, Lou Marson, Tyson Gillies, Phillippe Aumont, J.C. Ramirez, Justin Smoak, Josh Lueke, Blake Beaven and Matthew Lawson. None of those players is a major league All-Star. In fact, only two have a very good chance at being on any big-league roster when the season gets underway. The Phillies aren't likely to trade Cliff Lee any time soon.

THE CHESS GAME continues, or so it appears. Acquired in a trade at last Thursday's deadline, former Indiana Pacers swingman Danny Granger has yet to put on a 76ers uniform and it is unclear if he ever will. The holdup appears to be several things. Granger, who has battled knee problems that have drained him of his star status in the league, might rather play elsewhere; say, for a team contending for a championship. In order for that to happen, the Sixers would have to buy out the remainder of his $14 million contract.

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.

The reshaping of the Sixers took a dramatic turn Thursday. The team parted ways with starters and faces-of-the-franchise Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes, plus reserve Lavoy Allen, while acquiring three expiring contracts and five second-round picks in a series of moves before Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline. Turner and Allen were shipped to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for Danny Granger, who has an expiring contract, and a 2015 second-round pick. The Sixers also traded center Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers for forward Earl Clark, center Henry Sims, and two 2014 second-round draft picks - one from Cleveland and the other from the Memphis Grizzlies.

WHAT WILL today bring? Or what won't it bring? The NBA's trade deadline comes at 3 o'clock Eastern this afternoon, and, while the 76ers have been labeled as extremely active in discussions with various teams, there hasn't been a move made as of this writing. Veterans Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young, plus some draft picks, are the main bartering commodities general Sam Hinkie has to offer, but nothing seemed to be popping as of yesterday. Perhaps Hinkie expects too much in return, as some have said he's looking for a top-half, first-round draft pick.

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.

BROOKLYN - The rumors and reports will go on and on and on, probably almost daily until he is shipped elsewhere or the season mercifully comes to an end. Yesterday, a report by The Sporting News said the 76ers were actively shopping Evan Turner, saying the Phoenix Suns had interest in the fourth-year swingman. It is no secret that Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie is looking at and listening to any and all proposed deals when it comes to his team. Whether something happens with Turner or Thaddeus Young or Spencer Hawes won't be a shock, but, for now, nothing seems imminent.

PERHAPS YOU'VE seen the Geico TV ad featuring "the oldest trick in the book. " It reprises, comically, an ancient version of tricking someone with "look over there" where there's nothing to look at. It's misdirection. It's pretending. And it's like Pennsylvania politics. Take the issue called "paycheck protection. " This is a national conservative Republican effort ostensibly offered to help members of public-employee unions keep more of their pay. It would do this by banning deduction of union dues from government paychecks because taxpayer-paid government services are used to effect such deductions.
