Briere Puts On His Flyer Sweater

fromm Shawn P. Roarke at NHL.com,

Daniel Briere was handed his new No. 48 Philadelphia Flyers jersey late in Thursday’s press conference at the Flyers Skate Zone practice facility here. Smiling proudly, he held it up for the obligatory welcome-to-your-new-team press-conference photo.
“Finally,” he said with a heartfelt sigh before pulling it over his head for the first time to officially begin life as the centerpiece of the Philadelphia Flyers’ latest renaissance.
Briere, one of the most coveted prizes in this summer’s free-agency class, signed a big-money, eight-year deal with the Flyers just hours after the free-agent market opened 11 days ago. Since agreeing to that deal, he has been waiting eagerly to pull on his new franchise’s cherished black-and-orange sweater.
