VOORHEES, N.J. - Daniel Briere looked at the stall to his immediate left Monday at the Philadelphia Flyers practice facility and saw Jaromir Jagr sitting there.
Across the way was goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.
Down the row were the stalls of Brayden Schenn, Max Talbot and Jacob Voracek and, on the other side of Jagr, Wayne Simmonds.
Those half-dozen players were brought in during a summer of remarkable upheaval for the Flyers, just a year removed from a trip to the Stanley Cup final. It was a summer in which they shipped out captain Mike Richards and star forward Jeff Carter in blockbuster trades, two guys who were the faces of the franchise.
"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,' " Briere said with a smile and a shake of his head.

Wait a second. Did anyone see what briere just did there ?
Which response, this one?
"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 so, I can see the unity of one thought but I gave him the benefit of the doubt that the mention of luck referred to the second part only, the recent acquisitions.
