Matt Read, who has looked very good so far.

As for the 500+ FOW, that really depends on how the Flyers want to use him. Jeff Carter was the Flyers best FO guy last year (54.7%) but only had 331 FOW last year because Richards (49.8%, 606 FOW) and Giroux (50%, 548 FOW) took the majority of the FOs (for whatever reason).
I think if he starts with the club 30-35 points is reasonable, maybe even 40.

Also, Wayne Simmonds is awesome. That is all. Big fan of his since the 09-10 season.
