This was my point, as well...but apparently, since some Flyer fans think it's fair value, then we're crazy to expect anything else.

The fact is, Read isn't what the Ducks are looking for. If he was, then why would they use Bobby Ryan to acquire him when Ryan's much better. The only way trading Ryan makes any sense is if they improve their team, overall. Read, Mez, and a late first doesn't improve them. Even if you want to argue that the value is good (which I think is crazy), it still doesn't make any sense for the Ducks to make that trade.
