I mean, maybe the Flyers will trade Read, but it will be a hockey trade, not a cap trade.
The only way they trade Read is if they're out of the playoff picture by the deadline. It's pretty much a forgone conclusion that they can't afford his next deal, which figures to be around 5 million or so a year based on some of the UFA contracts handed out a couple of months ago.
