So I really cant see how they can keep Read. Unless you want to let a top 6 forward go in a salary dump deal as well
They can resign him if they use Prongers LTIR. Say he gets 4 million your lineup could look like this next year.

My Custom Lineup
Scott Hartnell ($4.750m) / Claude Giroux ($7.500m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Braydon Schenn ($3.000m) / Sean Couturier ($2.750m) / Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m)
Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Scott Laughton ($1.107m) / Zac Rinaldo ($0.750m)
Michael Raffl ($0.793m) / Nick Cousins ($0.894m) / Jay Rosehill ($0.675m)
Matt Read ($4.000m)
Mark Streit ($5.250m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m) / Braydon Coburn ($4.500m)
Top Pairing Defender ($5.000m) / Erik Gustafsson ($1.250m)
Mark Alt ($0.900m)
Chris Pronger ($4.941m)
Steve Mason ($3.000m)
Backup Goalie ($0.900m)
Buyout: Oskars Bartulis ($0.100m)
Buyout: Ilya Bryzgalov ($0.000m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $69,317,689; BONUSES: $292,500
CAP SPACE (23-man roster):- $4,725,189

I dont know why the lines came out that way, but just look at the players. In all honesty we actually need to try to trade Coburn and Grossmann for some Cheaper alternatives. We cant keep paying our 4th defenseman 4.5 and our 5th defenseman 3.5. I like both of them but if they could be traded for some younger guys with less expensive contracts it should be an option.

I put Alt and Cousins in there because that is likely what guys in that position will be paid, not because I think that is who should be in those positions

Edit: I am not arguing to keep Read, I am just pointing out that it could be done. Also it is starting to annoy me to see people say we can keep him and then say we should sign some forward for 4.5 million a year
