If you play with a play maker like Giroux you need to be able to shoot. Read is tenacious and is a good shooter. If I had to bet he's going to hang onto that top line RW spot. I didn't get a chance to mention his presence in my Cage Match article last week but I really was wondering why he wasn't getting a shot on that line when clearly neither Schenn nor Voracek was working perfectly. I'm hoping Read sticks on that top line permanently.
Yes, yes and yes.
I think Voracek is great but he's not working on the line with Giroux. He doesn't shoot, he's not a go-getter or a real hard worker. Read, on the other hand, is the opposite.
I'll be REALLY surprised to see what they do with Read in a year and a half. My guess? They get rid of Voracek in a package for a D-man or Bobby Ryan and resign Read long term.
