Philly gets a young puck mover with a lot of potential and a third pairing dmen. Tanev would be better but I would think Vancouver would throw in Ballard as a salary dump instead.
I find this deal interesting from a Vancouver POV. Not sure if Toronto would be up for it, but Read and Grossman are useful pieces for Van. Could any Philly fans give a bit more of a scouting report on Read? I know he is a good two way player and PKer, but is he more of a shooter or a passer? Did he play centre much, and how effectively? I imagine he isn't very physical due to his size?
