I'm thinking of signing him in a hockey pool, its a salary based pool so his $0.900 is very appealing especially since he ranks 33 amongst skaters in our point system. Really if he can be even half as productive he will be a good deal for me.

Advice is appreciated.
He's a college kid so he's going to eventually hit a dry spell. That considered he's going to be far more valuable in the first half of the season than the second half.

I'd also side it'd be pretty hard to remove him from the lineup now. Should Schenn come up and prove his worth though, it is Read who gets kicked out of the top 9.

I'd say anywhere from 30-45 points is a reasonable outcome for Read with 35-40 being the more likely result points wise. Should he stay in the top 9 all season.
