not only Da Costa, but Paul Thompson as well we are probably not going to get.
I am not going to be happy if either of those guys goes to a division rival. I will get one last look at em both this week. I am going to the frozen 4 regional in Manchester.

He will be playing tonight:

Read flew to Philadelphia American Hockey League affiliate Adirondack Phantoms in Glens Falls, New York on Wednesday. He is expected to be in uniform Thursday and will spend the rest of this season with the Phantoms. His free-agent contract begins at the start of the 2011-12 season.

DURHAM — When Paul Thompson arrived on campus a year ahead of schedule, his long-term goal was to become a sniper for the University of New Hampshire hockey team.

"When I committed here, especially junior and senior year," he said, "I wanted to be one of the go-to guys."

The Derry native wasn't necessarily expecting to become one of the top scorers in the country, worthy of being named Hockey East player of the year and a Hobey Baker Award finalist.

One just naturally followed the other.

"I didn't envision that," Thompson said, "but it's something you kind of hope for."

Thompson turned his dream of playing for UNH into reality, and is on the verge of completing a career year in which he leads the Wildcats in goals (28) and points (52). He also ranks second nationally in game-winning goals (7) and power-play goals (12).

"He's always been a goal scorer," said coach Dick Umile. "Some people, no matter how hard they try, will not become a goal scorer. They can create offense, pass the puck and get after it — but they can't finish it. He can finish."

But yeah I think that article that MSE put up put it best. Especially at the end.

It's Chay Genoway from University of North Dakota. No harm no foul, though. Especially if the Wild can land him instead.

As for Read, the guy can play. I think Flyer fans will like him. He's got a bit of skill but still carries some sandpaper in his game. As has been mentioned, he's a great leader and you won't see him taking a shift off. Believe me, you could do a lot worse for a bottom sixer. Hope he works out for you guys. Being a WCHA fan and with the Wild having him in for a few camps, we've seen a lot of Read.

There is another article about him at Stromgren's Blog, including quotes of him and his coach:

Quote:
“I’m very proud of Matt and how patient he was through this whole signing process,” Bemidji State head coach Tom Serratore said. “He led us into the first season in the WCHA and the first season in the Sanford Center. He accomplished a lot of things at BSU and now it’s great to see he is fortunate enough to sign with one of the most successful, most visible franchises in the National Hockey League.”

[...]

“He will be just fine in the NHL,” Serratore said. “Even though it’s a big jump, he has the maturity, talent and is an extremely competitive player. His game is going to transfer nice and he will be able to pick things up quickly. He has the intangibles other players don’t have.”

I was 23 when I graduated (5 years of college). So what if he's a bit older?

He's Canadian, he played a season in the OPJHL (Ontario Junior A), another season in the USHL (US Junior A) and went to Bemidji State shortly after he became 21.

Luukko, who we drafted last offseason, will be 20 for his freshman season at Vermont.

I wonder if Read knew Jeff Carter growing up, he's from Ilderton, a little town just north of London and they are only a year apart?

"Matt Read, the highly regarded Bemidji (Minn.) State forward who recently signed a one-way deal with the Flyers that starts in 2011-12, made his Phantoms debut Friday. Read's three-year deal is worth $2.7 million, and he has a good chance to be in the Flyers' lineup next season."

Whats everyone think about that, i had no idea he was that highly regarded. I think it be near impossible to make our top 9 next year

Read scored the game winner if I read it correctly

Mod edit:

Quote:
Matt Read made his professional hockey debut Friday night.

Playing for the Adirondack Phantoms, the former Bemidji State player nearly scored his first professional goal in the Phantoms 2-1 win over the Hershey Bears in Glens Falls, N.Y.

Read appeared to tip in a shot from Cullen Eddy early in the third period for a goal, but the goal summary was later changed and credited to Eddy.

Read, BSU’s senior captain last season, was making his debut after signing a three-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday. The Phantoms are the minor league affiliate of the Flyers and are based in Glens Falls.
Saturday:

5:05: Matt Read gets the rebound goal, his first professional goal, on a Cullen Eddy shot to give the Phantoms a 3-2 lead.

Chosen third star

Flyers offered 1-way contract because others were offering 2-way contracts?

Flyers have cash

Exactly, and this one of the ways, besides investing in scouting, that the cap doesn't affect you.

If Read never plays a game for the Flyers, who cares? Plenty of teams think he will, and if he doesn't, he'll be one of the highest paid Phantoms until Walker and Leighton leave!

The salary cap was a windfall for high revenue teams. Philly spend $65M on payroll before the lockout and still made money. Forcing them down to $50M was just an enforced profit.

Spend away!
