"10. Boy, do teams love what Matt Read is doing right now, coming back to help the Flyers even though he is clearly in pain. Talk about gaining respect."
I don't have a problem seeing his name out there, as long as it is valued fairly, but I agree that he could easily be a long-term piece. Re-sign Gagne for one year at something a little lower than he's making now ($2.5 or $3.0), and then use that money for Read's extension the following year.
