It was discussed briefly in the GDT (article posted there as well). He likely had separate thoughts with the statement about "luck" limited to the recent acquisitions and not the trades of the two players:
"If someone would have told me when I signed here that Richards and Carter would be gone and Jagr, (new captain Chris) Pronger and Bryzgalov would be sitting in the same dressing room as me, I would have said, 'c'mon, now let's not push our luck too much,'
If the writer sensed derision or conflict in Briere's response, critical to Richards and/or Carter, he probably would have promoted it in the article.
Later in the article, Briere is quoted as saying
"I don't want to throw those guys under the bus," he said. "They were good teammates. I really have nothing bad to say against them as teammates, you know? For their careers, I think (the trade) might be a good thing for them, as well. All of a sudden now the pressure is on them to start performing. It's good for both sides. If everything turns out, it could be one of those trades where it worked out for the team and it worked out for the player."
