Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo has failed to respond to a team-imposed deadline of 5 p.m. ET Tuesday on a four-year deal believed to worth as much as $16-million, Sportsnet has learned. The Panthers made the offer late last week and gave Luongo and his representation the weekend to consider the deal in an effort to avoid Wednesday morning's arbitration hearing. So, unless there is a sudden change of heart, the club-elected arbitration appears to be the next move. Sources tell Sportsnet Luongo will argue a case for just over $4 million for one year in an arbitration reward.
