Well it is broke so we should fix it IMO. Our 1/2 line LW position is broken and I think Read is a good solution. We all keep talking about how we need that 30 goal scorer for G and I think Read could be that guy. He will definetely have more value on the 1st line if he puts up good numbers and its easier to replace Read on the 3rd line than it is to go out and get a 30 goal scorer for the 1st line.

Edit: Blinds beat me to it.
