We won't be able to afford everyone. The general consensus is that it will come down to a choice between McDonald and Stewart. There won't be a problem with Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, Berglund, Cole or Russell.

As for the other poster who mentioned Don Meehan being Petros agent, I don't think that is a significant factor. He represents Backes as well, and we didn't have any issues getting him signed until 2016 at $4.5m. Ultimately the player decides how far he wants to push things for a few extra bucks.
