Read is a UFA, not an RFA like Kadri. There's nothing stopping him from walking away to the highest bidder next July. I've been saying it since last season, but I wouldn't fault the guy at all for signing for the maximum that he could get. This is likely to be the only big money deal he'll get as an NHL player. At some point, he has to think about his long term financial security.
