Perhaps you should clarify what you mean by short term? I'm assuming a 2-3 year contract? What if he get's injured? What if he plays poorly? It would significantly affect his ability to make even more money or even have a job in the NHL next time he is due for a contract.

If Luongo hits a FA market at 33 he will shoot for a long term big dollar contract regardless of the buyout. Not a two year deal so he can move to Florida. Really?

From all I heard he's going to play till he's 39 at an elite level. Now he's going to take a short term contract and turn down/risk millions more just to play for Florida?

I've heard it all now.
