Assuming that Read's future is on the wing...this is what we're looking at when looking at the forward position long-term:

Holmstrom (24)
Giroux (23)
Schenn (19)
Couturier (18)

Read (25)
Nodl (24)
Testwuide (24)
Simmonds (22)
vanRiemsdyk (22)
Voracek (21)
Akeson (21)
Wellwood (21)
Ranford (19)
I don't know. To me, if Akeson is getting bigger and everything else, he could even make the team. Ranford could make it in the next few seasons. Read is just a guy that I think could possibly fit in with us this year. He's the oldest of our prospects you mentioned and he seems like the best choice if a spot is available. It will all come down to training camp and preseason for these guys, so we'll just have to wait and see.
