He's my favorite player. He does everything well and rarely makes mistakes. Works hard and goes about his work quietly yet efficiently. That contract is nice, too. He's 27 now, so we have him locked up through most of his prime.

StandingCow 10-02-2013 09:45 PM

He has been fantastic, even when the team looks bad he still manages to look pretty good.

Great re-signing.

Jtown 10-02-2013 10:12 PM

With that cap hit he can do no wrong

Roo Mad Bro 10-02-2013 10:21 PM

Thought he was one of the better skaters tonight.

Sniped 10-03-2013 11:22 AM

Vinny and him were the best 2 forwards on the ice, glad we got Read locked up! Proving to be a sound player in all aspects of the game.

Fearless Leaf* 10-04-2013 04:48 PM

Mr.underrated, love his game.

FreshPerspective 11-25-2013 03:09 PM

Since somebody mentioned Matt Read needs to be appreciated again in the other Read thread

***BUMP***

Thanks! My favorite Flyer! Anyone else notice he is also hitting much more this season?

OriginJM 11-25-2013 03:23 PM

NHL forever, this time i'm 100% sure

Wixztor 11-25-2013 03:29 PM

Perpetually looks like he's been an NHL:er since he was 18 years old. It boggles my mind how he does pretty much everything right night in and night out. Really, really glad we got to keep him.

Thinking about Matt Read at work.

He's really really good, and unless im misreading [heheh, mis-read-ing] he's on pace for more than 20 this year

What a deal.

RJ8812* 03-19-2014 03:50 PM

Read is the 2nd most important forward on this team

What a deal.

He's sitting on 19 goals with 14 games left, unless of an injury he should get it.

Voracek (18), Hartnell (18), & Schenn (17) should all pass that mark as well.

I'd rank him either 3rd or 4th.

FlyersFanz 03-19-2014 04:23 PM

Read and Couts are the shutdown guys on the PK...when they are out there you know the player is covered and the puck gets cleared.

not me

Other than Giroux, Read is the only other forward that plays PK & PP. Without him in the line-up, there's a noticeable gap

Can we make the title of the thread "Matt Read - WOW!!" you know, kind of like this one? http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...ight=matt+read

Matt Read - WOW!!
Is Philly drunk? Signing this guy who is unproven and a midget to a 3 yr one-way deal at avg $900,000K is absolutely absurd and a terrible move by the GM. This joke of over-paying for college free agents is hilarious!! Team scouting departments should be fired for this. The anomaly that Martin St. Louis, Ed Belfour, Adam Oates and more recent Chris Kunitz have been are extreme examples and if a player isn't drafted and noticed early in their career in this age of technology, then hes not worth the crazy deal. Tyler Bozak and Matt Gilroy were seen as immediate saviors and have been busts SO FAR!! All teams are doing is making their AHL team a lot stronger (hopefully) and producing 4th line NHL'ers at best. With phillys strong prospect group and signing this midget to a 3 year one-way deal will create more headaches than anything else. Absolutely flabbergasted!!! Holmgren is a moron....get a goalie already!! Bridesmade again is all I can say!

Its a one way deal so they are burning 900k/year (ALL CAP SPACE) on a guy that has no pedigree and has been an unknown all this time. To boot, hes 25. One can hope he turns into something decent, high side -steve reinprecht (and thats a stretch) - low side $3M bust.

That thread is a classic, I love how they had to lock it because people kept bumping it during his rookie year. :laugh:

The OP's name being knowitall made it a million times better too

King Forsberg 03-20-2014 12:06 PM

Remember when it looked like Read would be a cap casualty after this season was up? Or when LA was demanding him for Bernier? Thank God we don't have to worry about that anymore. He and Couturier have become absolute building blocks for this team.

NHLfreak1 03-22-2014 01:00 AM

Schenn and Couterier have gotten far more attention and praise, mostly due to their age, but Matt Read has been quietly outplaying both of them handily.

KaraLupin 04-26-2014 04:28 PM

Mentor to young Akeson?

FlyersFan61290 04-26-2014 04:47 PM

More like inexperienced Akeson. He'll be 24 this June (9 days before I turn 24 in fact). He's already older then Couts and B Schenn, only 6 months younger then Luke and a yr younger then Jake.

He's a good fit age wise with the team, hopefully they all help him out. I don't really see that as a problem though considering he's such good friends with G.

Tedeward 05-03-2014 01:07 PM

This guy had 22 goals this year. 18 Even Strength (2nd on team) and 4 SHG (2nd in NHL). It may be just me but I think that if Read got an elevated/more offensive role on the team, he could put up ~30 goals. Obviously we would need to find a replacement for him on the 3rd line, but I think he has so much unseen talent.
