I don't disagree. I don't think anyone is undervaluing Matt Read. I think we have his value right where it should be for our young forwards:

Giroux > Couturier > Schenn > Voracek > Simmonds > Read > Laughton > Cousins (IMO)
Exactly. Read is a good little player, very versatile, skilled and fast. But IF the premise is that we need to put a forward with, for example, Mez, in a deal for Nash or Ryan, Read would go before the others in that order. That's all. He's 6th in that list, which puts him on the 3rd line and therefore more expendable than some others.
