Id rather look elsewhere for a young defenseman. I still say Kulikov.
If he was, you'd never get him for Read.

I think he's likely to be a 3/4 defenseman with above average offensive skills--and he's a RH shot.

All of those things are valuable if you look at our blue-line long term. He doesn't solve the need for a #1D, but you can't do that around Read.
