Since he's turned pro he's had one month where he's shown any kind of offense (last November).
He doesn't bring enough other stuff to the table to make up for zero offensive game.
You're going to throw away a perfectly good NHLer on a hunch that Read is better?
Forgot Nodl's one good offensive month, Read has had NONE.
I know you like Read's offensive potential, but what if he's just another preseason flare out?
Then you just got rid of a third line winger for somebody who couldn't cut it. If you waive Nodl just to put Read in his place, Read better drop 50 because he's definitely not going to be as defensively responsible as Nodl while chipping in offensively.
I'm a huge Read fan, but until Read has proven anything more than a few preseason games of offense, he has no right to suddenly be deemed better than Nodl.
Note that he's also a couple years older than Nodl, and a hefty chunk of the forwards on our roster for that matter.
