Busy in Philly

One of the big prizes ended up in Philadelphia as the Flyers are getting overhauled. Daniel Briere signed an 8-year deal worth $52 million. He'll be fitted in somewhere with some new faces.

The Flyers also added a couple more faces via the trade routes. The Flyers shipped defenseman Joni Pitkanen and forward Geoff Sanderson to the Oilers for Jason Smith and Joffrey Lupul.

As you can see, the Flyers added some quality talent through trades and signings. The big question is less about skill now and more about chemistry. There's a lot of new faces, some good... most of them, expensive. Here's a look at what the roster will be like at this point:

Mike Knuble

Daniel Briere

Simon Gagne

Scott Hartnell

Jeff Carter

Joffrey Lupul

Scott Upshall

Mike Richards

Sami Kapanen

Ben Eager

R.J. Umberger

Stefan Ruzicka

Kimmo Timonen

Randy Jones

Jason Smith

Derian Hatcher

Lasse Kukkonen

Braydon Coburn

Martin Biron

Antero Niitymaki

There's a lot of potential in this line-up, but how will they mingle?
