Read is also done physically maturing at 25 years old, and was excellent his short time in the AHL. Holmgren called him "by far the best Phantom." Having a player go the AHL for a few games at the end of a season and then playing in NHL the next season is some thing this team has done in the past and may happen again.

I too would like an explanation as to why Betts is being thrown under he bus. Did his faceoffs really fall off that much? Did he stop becoming a big part of the PK and I just didn't see it? Is it because of his nagging shoulder? I still see him as a valuable 4th liner and PKer but I must be in the minority. What did he miss last year? maybe 10 or games wasn't it? I see Talbot as the Lappy or Powe replacement not the Betts replacement.
