Unfortunately Read will be a Salary Cap casualty regardless so it would behoove us to move him while he has value and a low cap hit. He's already 27, which while not old at all, isn't as nice as guys like Giroux, Simmonds, Schenn, Laughton, and Coots, all of whom still have potential to improve, while I think we have basically seen the best of (while still good) Read that we will see.

I really like Read but I just don't see him taking a discount on his first opportunity to get paid to stay in Philadelphia. He was an excellent find by the front office and really helped out offensively and cost wise but unfortunately now that we are in a salary cap world this is a move that financially and logistically needs to happen, be it for Bernier or whoever.
