Luongo Hurt by Arbitration

from the Sun-Sentinel via the Mercury News,
The Panthers are in a quandary. Roberto Luongo's heart, the one that bleeds "Panthers," is bruised. Luongo says he's hurt, and you don't want your star goaltender, the man who is the only face of your franchise, the man who will determine how far you will go, to be hurt. "I just can't believe they're taking me to arbitration," Luongo said. "It's the last thing I thought would happen. They wanted to sign me for five years and I was so happy. Then they were only trying to sign me for two. Now one? To think they're taking me to arbitration, it's the route I expected the least." The Panthers feel they've been more than fair with Luongo. They offered him a three-year deal averaging $3.75 million a season, more than double the $1.8 million they had to qualify him at.
