Edit: Didn't know about Briere's injury so I guess Philly doesn't do it either.
If you're calling Read a prospect at 26, then no he's not the best forward prospect not named Wingels because there's a guy by the name of Logan Couture that's better than both of them.
Matt Read is a good player but the Flyers would get more value if they traded him to a team that would use him as a top six player. Unless the Sharks swung a deal to move out a top six forward, that wouldn't be here. And if they did that, that sort of defeats the purpose of adding forward depth.
