and for only 900k. So both he and Dumont sign for substantially less than what the arbitration hearings awarded them. Looks like both Chicago and Boston made reasonably smart business decisions, and it looks like Nashville, and now Raleigh have made equally smart ones.
I like Tanabe on some level, and certainly for 900k, he's a worthwhile "project."
We've been down this road before... Our top 6 are all somewhere between "better" and "significantly better" than Tanabe. Yes, even Sopel. Wanna pay 1 million for a Weaver replacement? Wanna interrupt the progress of Petiot? Tanabe's got the potential to be Joe Corvo - both good and bad parts. No disrespect to his upside skillz, but that's not a good fit for the Kings.
