Dylan Shiel

Hope we're one of the first in line. Gun. Outside pace, breakaway pace from the stoppages and ball magnet. Would compliment our midfield beautifully.

If Hogan goes we need to chase him, Whitfield or Kelly and throw some more $ at Gaff.

Yup. We need to turn the Hogan pick or picks into a ready made star.

I'll be shot down for this, but I don't rate him as highly as others.  Has good pace and is a good accumulator, but he isn't a real good user of the footy and, to me, isn't the best at running both ways.

Carlton, Essendon, Saints, Hawks etc will be front of the queue.  I haven't seen us mentioned at all when his name comes up.  That doesn't mean we won't have a crack, but I'd say that if he's asking for over a million a season that it might put us out of the running from the start.

If Hogan goes, THEN ITS ALL IN FOR SHIEL

If Freo give Hogan $1mil a year for 5 years, then Shiel is worth the same. Shiel would walk into us as the best (or equal best player with Maxy and Clarry) 

whatever we get for Hogan  (say Freo 1st pick 2018 and future 1st pick 2019)  we give to GWS for Shiel

its operation Shiel if Hogan goes

Agree with you Wise. Whitfield is the one I would like. Unlikely though

He isn’t worth 1.2, but he still is a bloody good player

He can’t kick and doesn’t do the defensive stuff. He looks flashy when he runs through the middle but he doesn’t do the hard stuff we value so he won’t be coming to us

He's asking for mega dollars and to ask for that coin you need to be a top 10-20 player in the Comp to justify your wage. We are better off chasing better value elsewhere or paying for real quality. Gaff at 900k might be worth it for example.

Agree with all of those posters above.  I won't quote you all!

Clubs like Carlton, Essendon and St. Kilda will happily overpay for him as he is a good midfielder who they believe will put them over the top.  Will he?  Maybe, maybe not.  But I don't think he is a gun of the competition who is worth over a million a season.  Lesser clubs will still pay that because they are desperate to add someone of his talent, but we don't need to do that.

Kelly and Whitfield are the ones, I agree Shiel is overrated, he butchered the ball this year, especially in front of goal. Let him milk other clubs salary caps

We need to service our needs like we did in the Lever trade, needed a intecept defensive player so we went out and got one.

I'd take Kelly over Whitfield but both the type of player we need, that would be a cherry on top type outcome.

Shiel wouldn't be servicing an immediate need like Lever, just stockpiling a need we already have.

For an apparent gun he certainly butchers it a lot whenever I see him. Not saying he’s not but we need an elite user.

Gone to Hawks or Carl I feel anyway, Haw if he wants success, Carl if he wants what they're offering him.

Did anybody who says he's  a gun actually look closely at him at all?

Gee for the price he is asking no thank you, his an alright player but not great player.

Is Kelly up for trade this year?

Not sure why this guy isn’t generating more discussion? Word is we are into Shiel up to our ears and will be right up the front of the bus for his signature if the right cards fall our way (especially if Hogan goes).

Exactly what we need. Blistering outside run and link up midfielder with good skills and a bit of healthy arrogance to boot. 

Would love to see him in red and blue.
