I am a big fan of Read as well but he is not as important as Voracek, Simmonds, or Hartnell. Read's value will decrease tremendously once he gets a new deal. Not that he is a bad player, but he is a steal at 900k.
And he still has another year at 900K. I never said top pairing, but wouldn't hurt to try to trade a PMD from someone's rankings (also one that hasn't been in the NHL much). I keep thinking of Rundblad or something like him. We would have to trade some higher end guys to get players that are already proven.
