wow, that was quick. i doubt he'll be the same player, by that i mean it'll probably take him a while to get back into things. before his injury he was arguably our most consistent/best forward.

Trust me, full-contact is the best way to handle this type of virus.

The Flyers prospect pool may not be the deepest - but they do have a lot of 13th forwards that fill in nicely (since picking up Gagne that is)

Zolnierczyk, Knuble, McGinn, Wellwood. Once Read comes back - say next week - the 4th line will be Rinaldo Fedotenko and ??? Talbot?

Forward Matt Read is also considered day-to-day. Read is recovering from torn rib cage muscles he suffered in the Flyers-Penguins game on Feb. 20, and was expected to be out of action for six weeks.

At the Carnival - he seemed fine. Of course, walking around is a long way from playing hockey. But he didn't seem like he was in pain. I told him I was glad he made it to the carnival despite his injury - he joked that they "make everyone come to this, even when injured."

That is a quck turnaround for that kind of injury but Roethlisberger did the same thing its more about pain tolerance then anything else.

Cortisone shots are Matt Read's friends today, I guess.

I get those frequently with my knees. The painkiller wears off for a day, and the shot doesn't really kick in for a week.

Pretty courageous on Read's part. Any injury to your ribs are no joke.

I have a bruised rib right now and even sitting up hurts. Can't imagine a torn rib muscle. Props to Read

I am getting tired of seeing this guy in every trade proposal. Friedman said teams respect him for playing through pain after coming back. Discussion should be around how much he gets extended for this summer.

He has been one of the best forwards at even strength (has as many points as Giroux ES) and if the second PP unit wasn't completely lost, his point totals would be up there.

"10. Boy, do teams love what Matt Read is doing right now, coming back to help the Flyers even though he is clearly in pain. Talk about gaining respect."

I would agree with you except I think Read would have big value at this deadline. Every playoff team could fit his salary into this and next years cap. His versatility is off the charts something every playoff team would want and is a big reason to keep him. He would be like Versteeg with a better contract which makes him more valuable with the cap dropping. Flyers gave a 1st and 3rd for Versteeg. I think they could receive more for Read. A 1st plus a good prospect isn't that crazy of a possibility, something like Clendening + 1st from Chicago. If that's the case you almost have to take it, especially with a due a big raise the same year the Flyers have to sign Giroux, B. Schenn, and Couturier plus replace Timonen.

I don't have a problem seeing his name out there, as long as it is valued fairly, but I agree that he could easily be a long-term piece. Re-sign Gagne for one year at something a little lower than he's making now ($2.5 or $3.0), and then use that money for Read's extension the following year.

I think Read should stay in general. Mainly because he's someone this club needs. Two-way forward, cheap price and reliable. I still think the big two that should be traded are Briere and Mez.

I wouldn't trade him, if we do it will turn out the same way that Sharp did. Guy was our best player before he got hurt, he bring so many elements to the table that it would be hard to replace.

It depends on what we got in return. I wouldn't trade him just to trade him, but if we are going after a #1 defender or something to that affect I would be cool with it. You have to give to get. Read has been awesome this year, but this team has big needs on the blueline. If the Flyers were to trade for a #1 defender, Read would be one of the people I would be willing to give up. Giroux, Vorcek, and Schenn I wouldn't. Couturier I would think about. Read and Simmonds I would be ok giving up.
