Luongo Turns down Florida's first offer

Roberto Luongo turned down the Panthers first offer of $30 Million 5 year contract.

”I just want to make sure we’re a playoff team for many years to come,” Luongo told the Sun-Sentiel. ”I don’t want to spend another five years here just watching the playoffs on television.

”It is a great contract for me, but No. 1 is winning a Stanley Cup and having success in the playoffs. After that, money comes second.”

Luongo tells the paper that he is in no hurry to sign a contract and since he is a restricted free agent the Panthers have the right to match any offer he receives after this season.

Could he want less and want the panthers to use the money on some of the free agents this off season?
