I look at him as a similar measuring stick to Clarke MacArthur. Paille in his first year in Buffalo has 19 goals.

My opinion of Read is Meehhh....he isnt a tem savior. I would rather get yournger players and draft picks over him.

he was deployed on all 3 top lines. He played a lot with Couturier in the shut down role, when others were struggling he moved to a top line role for some time with Giroux, and then finished the season playing more 2nd line situations with Schenn.

He's versatile... but you already knew that, since you are pretty "meh" on him, even though you weren't aware of who he played with/how he was used.

he got less than 50% starts in the Ozone, but still was a higher end ES goal scorer

he faced top QOC, because he was deployed defensively

he is not a dime a dozen player... not in today's market, and today's NHLer
