Wow. Maybe 3 yrs at 3 mil per, but 3.625 for 4 years is going to look pretty bad in a few years when the league has figured him out.

Put him on the free agent market and he probably gets 5 million a year. Very happy to lock him up at that number.

This is hysterical, thanks for making my night. What a joke.

The Flyers have been in supposed cap trouble since 2008 I thought? You people need to learn and do some research before making such baseless comments, we are FINE cap wise. Ive been hearing this for 6 years, the only cap casualty deal weve made was Upshall, and if it wasnt for his questionable off ice personality, he still wouldnt have been dealt.

Oh really, what is it that they need to figure out? It's pretty obvious what kind of player Matt read is. Other teams dont have to go out and hire a private investigator to try and stop Matt read.

Boyd Gordon who is no comparison at all to Matt Read got 3mil/year 3 years. Matt Read is worth a heck of a lot more than him

At first, this kinda looks like an overpayment but in a year or two, I think it'll be seen as a pretty good deal. Still though, it's probably a little more than the Flyers can really afford... it's not like they're lacking forward options in the first place.

What's the deal with Read not making it to NHL till age of 25? Just seems odd for such a good versatile top 6-9 forward to wait so long. I only ask cause I did not follow him coming up.

Boyd Gordon got that contract because Edmonton has to overpay to get people to go there, not exactly a fair comparison

He played four years and Bemidji State. Not sure why he waited so long to sign though, I think he wanted to finish his degree. Supposedly teams were going after him during his sophomore year in college and he knew he was going to sign wih they flyers his junior year but waited to finish

How is it an overpayment for a guy who plays in literally ALL situations, scores 50 points and is an UFA to be? 3.65? I honestly hope you are joking.

He played out his junior eligibility until he went to college. He then played all 4 years of college before signing with the Flyers as a UFA. Classic definition of a late bloomer.

You have a point. It's a players market regardless, he would have gotten that money plus some from another team

I honestly hope you can read. I said at first it looks like an overpayment, not that it was one. Sorry that the slightest negative opinion of the signing hurts your feelings.

The thing is that absolutely nothing at any point of this deal screams overpayment. Hes already a 50 point player playing on the 3rd line with minimal PP time. Not to mention that hes probably our best defensive forward besides Couturier.

He just has less of a track record than most UFAs who get this kind of contract. That's all I'm saying.

I'm the biggest non-Flyer fan Read homer there is to be honest. I've followed him since he played in the Frozen Four at Bemidji State, and I've advocated on HFboards numerous times for my team to trade for him.

That said, there's still some risk with this signing. But it's not bad by any means.

True, I think he gets about 4.25-4.5 on the open market. While I think the contract is good, I'm still not sure if it was right for the Flyers to resign him unless they make some moves next offseason

When did Matt Read become a goalie or one dimensional forward that teams game plan against? He plays an effective role because he's smart, really quick, and never stops moving.

What's to figure out, anyway? It's not like this is The Mighty Ducks and Julie the Cat is going to study his breakaway moves rendering him utterly useless.

I have to be honest, this is one of the most ******** posts I may have ever seen here. Bickel just got $4m over 4 years because he was good in the playoffs, yet Read's been good for 2 years and plays well in every position and in every situation and gets less and all the sudden he's going to be figured out? I hope teams start game planning for Read so Giroux, Voracek, Lecavalier, etc can shred them to pieces while their following Read around waiting to stop his triple deke.

Like who, Clarkson, Clowe, Bickell? Those contracts are ridiculous. You seem to know a lot about Read but I really dont see any risk in this signing at all. Read is what he is, and 3.65 is a GREAT number after the contracts weve been seeing lately.

It wouldn't be an offseason without the flyers making some kind of move. Espicially with the draft in Philly this year, flyers fans better be ready

I just want to apologize to any NJD fans to whom I've made a trap reference. I now understand how annoying that is.

ITT: Flyers are in cap hell, this deal is good/ok/bad.

In regards to the cap, no, seriously, we're fine. We're always fine and will always be fine.

Read...I don't know how people can chastise this deal with what's transpired this offseason. I'm sure there are quite a few players signed this offseason at a higher cap hit people would rather have Read over. Read is a great two way player who is extremely versatile, plays hard, and has a good hockey sense. This is not going to bite the Flyers in a few years, it isn't a bad deal, just stop.

Only because of the assine rules placed in the new CBA that allowed them to buy out two huge mistakes, how would the team be looking this year if Briere and Bryzgalov were still on the roster?

Does it really matter? Even if it was the old CBA, they could have waived Bryzgalov and eaten his Caphit. There is always a way to shed cap space and the Flyers always figure it out. Believe it or not the Flyers do have people that are smarter than us when it comes to this stuff

is the gm of your team too stupid to dump a bad contract or two? or can't they afford it? I get it the Flyers are the Yankees and you're a Royals fan.

The rule is only asinine from your point of view
