They will be much less incline to trade him if his 900k salary was extended for three more years.
Again, agree. We definitely don't need a 3 mil bottom six guy and it doesn't look like we can afford another 3 mil top six guy when we have Toffoli. Especially a player of Read's size and of Read's age...for 3 mil we can probably re-sign Penner, proven playoff performer of excellent size. I don't like trading for a guy and tripling his salary when he looks to be of an age where e has no more vertical upside. That kind of money we give to Voynov or In the future Toffoli.
