Giroux 7.5-8
Read 3-3.5
Schenn 3.5
Couts 2

Pretty easily doable. Not saying Read will definitely resign, but it certainly isn't an Umberger situation.
Read could easily get more that. I think that is a good ballpark, but if he tops 50 points this season I think that number goes more to $4-$4.5 (unless he simply wants to stay in Philly and takes a discount). If he puts up 50+ points he may be one of the most sought after UFAs the next offseason outside of the obvious big name guys (should they make it).
