He certainly has some leverage considering it would look like a massive failure on DWs part if we didn't sign him and we essentially threw away some solid prospects and McGinn for essentially Galiardi. I'm sure he knows that, but I also hope he talked to some of the "core" players here who have taken hometown discounts to give DW the ability to bring in fresh faces.
