In that particular scenario it doesn't, but if you were dealing with a team that is going to be in cap trouble next year it makes some sense.
My point for keeping Read this season is he can fill pretty much any role. With the schedule jam packed, injuries are going to happen. Read can handle 1st, 2nd, or 3rd line minutes, PK, PP, he can play LW, RW, or even center. With Briere hurt, Read could fill in for him and there wouldn't be much drop off if any at all.
I'm sure Homer has something up his sleeve, so we shall see what will happen.
