Tanabe, Cloutier dispute buyouts

A bit more info over at Globe on Hockey.

The Kings have managed to get doctors' clearance for Cloutier to play (even though they don't want him to), but no one seems to have seen much of David Tanabe in recent months. His agent said today that he remains injured.

One of the things that has made this Tanabe saga so confusing is that we have heard nothing, NOTHING about his status. Usually when players have this type of injury, we hear things like "Tim Connolly has continued to see specialists about his lingering post-concussion problems, and he has been working out" or "Everything is fine with Matt Cullen except his vision is blurred. He is seeing a specialist to correct these vision problems". For seven months now, we have heard absolutely nothing about Tanabe aside from "he's still concussed".

Some members of the Caniac nation (and I might include myself in this lot) suspect that something other than "concussion" is going on.

That's why I asked his agent for a comment, but there wasn't a ton of clarification. I imagine at some point soon Tanabe will have to meet with doctors to clear this up.

During my recent interview with Hurricanes trainer, Pete Friesen, he told me that Tanabe had seen multiple specialists and had several MRI's, but nothing definitive could be found.

Regardless, Tanabe said that he continued to suffer from symptoms.

He needs to get to SUNY-Buffalo, they are the ones that helped Tim Connolly get back in the game (so he could get his knee injured).

The other thing that makes the Tanabe situation confusing is that no one seemed able to really pin down when and how he got concussed, just that it was during the game when the Leafs squandered a shutout when they gave away two goals in the last 85 seconds and Alexi Ponikarovsky missed an empty-net goal. My theory is that Tanabe's mind was literally blown upon witnessing Toronto's astoundingly inept play.
