Read isnt on a two-way deal, so he would probably go overseas

And btw, I'm not 100% sure on this, but if there's a lock-out, I'm pretty sure that players that are burried in the AHL on one-way NHL deals, such as Walker, would not be able to play in the AHL (unless they sign an AHL contract) since there would be no agreement in place between the NHL and AHL
Actually Read is on an ELC, which is a two way contract
