It would definitely be a bit of a gamble given how early both of these player's careers are. Read will probably regress, although I do like him and Leddy has shown flashes that are sure to become more and more consistent given time to develop. Seems about equal value, but it would definitely be a gamble as either player could stagnant, regress or explode.
Looks like a solid deal, imo. Valuewise it's skewed towards Philly, but the Hawks get a serviceable 2C and the Flyers a young PMD. If the Flyers added a pick/prospect/low tier defenseman it could work out.
21 tear old 37 point Defenseman who is improving defensively is pretty darn good value for 26(?) Read who finally broke out
Read didn't "finally break out." This was his first year in the NHL because he played his full four years in college and was never drafted. That said, I doubt the Blackhawks would trade Leddy for Read, and there's no chance in hell the Flyers would entertain moving Schenn in a deal for Leddy.
