His contract had a clause stating that he would receive 3 million this year if he was to play in all 82 games this season. With Shelley's suspension, this was impossible to fit under the cap at the beginning of the year. Since he started off the year in the AHL, his cap hit is now somewhere around 1.6 million, which is clearly more manageable.

Read is leading all rookies in scoring and has looked great thus far. Couturier has been one of our strongest defensive forwards, killing penalties and playing during most key defensive segments. Barring a major fall off from either one, they should be here to stay, especially Couturier, who is not eligible for the AHL this season.
