Well, like someone said after me, his cap hit counts. Obviously, Schenn and JVR are better players, but to acquire Weber or Suter, you definitely have to give up one of them.

The fact about Read is that his trade value would be way under what he's worth imo, and I would try not to put him in a package deal. And, even if he's in his prime in terms of age, he's not at his best yet, since it's his first year in the NHL. The guy will learn a lot and in 3-4 years, he could very well be an incredible player. He's a lock for our top 6.
