Of course the guy is a lot more than your ordinary 3rd liner and deserves a way higher contract then other 3rd liners. But since we have our top 6 set with long contracts (ok, obviously not Schenn) I dont think we can offer him more than a slightly better 3rd liner contract. I dont see him bumping anyone out of the top 6 that soon, not to mention couturier would probably be the guy who does it before him.
Plus, i would not compare his situation to Leinos, Read combined two great seasons doing what ever he was asked to, and playing which ever position needed to be played, Leino was just a one hit wonder that resulted from some good chemistry in the Briere Hartnel line... not to mention that Leino was older at the time when he signed with buffalo than Read will be next summer.
