We've got other guys that can replace him defensively and it can work better.
You don't stop improving because something you're doing is working moderately well.
Really? Who are these players?
If Couturier improves offensively & Laughton can even somewhat lighten up the defensive load than your problems will be solved, you'll still squeeze a little more production out of Read & still have him in a role he's clearly better than any other option on the roster.
Couturier & Read will always draw the tougher assignments on this club no matter what changes. They are like our Bergeron & Marchand in that sense.
