So the Kings would be trading a first, two seconds, and a third for Read and a way your proposed deal is far closer
Well, considering where the Flyers and Kings will be picking, it's more like Bernier + high 2nd for Read + high 3rd...

But of course, you ignore context, as almost everyone on HFBoards does.

Basically Read's value is a draft round higher than Bernier's is what I pointed out.

EDIT: Nevermind. Figured it out.

It's really closer to three 2nds + 3rd for Read + 2nd.

As I said before, context is EXTREMELY important, but people in general just like ignoring it. You can float the picks around, but it's not like the Flyers are getting a top 15 pick out of this deal, which is something you would expect to pay for a 0.900m/year 25yo forward racking up 50 points a season while playing a speedy and defensively responsible game.
