Bruins exercise walk-away option on Tanabe arbitration
The Boston Bruins have exercised their "walk-away" option on the arbitration award to defenseman David Tanabe, it was announced today by Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli. Tanabe becomes an unrestricted free agent able to sign with any NHL team.

Tanabe was awarded a one-year, $1.275 million contract by arbitrator Edwin H. Benn during an August 3, 2006 hearing. In accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Bruins had 48 hours from the time of that decision to accept the award and sign Tanabe to the one-year contract at that amount, or exercise a "walk-away" option and render Tanabe an unrestricted free agent.

"This is one of the difficult decisions that must be made while managing a salary cap," said Chiarelli. "We have made two significant additions to our defensive corps this off-season and we are very comfortable with the depth we have at that position."

Tanabe, 26, has played six NHL seasons with Carolina, Phoenix and Boston. He was acquired by the Bruins from Phoenix in a November 11, 2005 trade for Dave Scatchard and had four goals and 12 assists for 16 points with 48 penalty minutes in 54 Boston games last season. His six-year NHL totals are 24 goals and 70 assists for 94 points with 193 PIM in 371 career NHL games.
