Nathan Horton wants out of Florida?

Panthers winger Nathan Horton is apparently unhappy with the team and wants out of Florida, according to the Palm Beach Post.
Horton, 21, is set to become a restricted free agent this summer and the Post claims the Panthers could face problems re-signing him.

Horton's Boston-based agent, Paul Krapelka, said Horton's dissatisfaction stems mostly from the team's inability to build a winner.

"He's frustrated at not winning, like everybody else down there," Krapelka told the paper. "The unhappiness is a matter of frustration with the team.

"He may wear it on his sleeve more than other guys. But at no time have we ever asked he be traded."

Horton and Bobby Orr, who heads the agency Krapelka works for, met with Panthers coach and GM Jacques Martin two weeks ago to discuss Horton's situation.

According to the Post, Krapelka is believed to be attempting to orchestrate an offer sheet from another team that the Panthers could be unwilling to match. Martin had not heard of such a report.

Horton has recorded 15 goals and 23 assists for 38 points in 52 games so far this season with the Panthers.
