    last time i counted, 1.275 million was less than 1.4 million.... shouldn't Boston have to accept tanabe's contract?

    Sure it works - read the CBA. It is working per the CBA agreement just signed between the NHL and NHLPA.

    The teams can walk away from an award - a player cannot.

    It's either a typo or just sloppy reporting on TSN's part - my guess is the latter.

    The threshold for walk-away rignts is NOT $1.4M - it is $1,042,173 (indexed to average salary inflation in future years).

    Mair ($675K) is below that threshold - Tanabe ($1.275M) is above.
