Who do we realistically target for a trade?

Recommended Posts

I know this Kind of Thread pops up all the time but, who should we target should Gaff stay in Perth?

McGovern, Dahlhaus, Hannebery?

I’m sure we will be targeting some fast mids/ forwards to help us out?

A back up ruck, should one be needed (touch wood). Not sure Pederson will be with us next year and Tmac should stay as a forward target.

I'm all for Dahlhaus.  Hard at it, quick. Not sure he will leave the digs though.

Can only be a free agent of some sort as we have no currency to trade with. No first rounders, no future picks (can’t trade two future picks in consecutive years), no surplus star players or star players wanting to leave. 

The list is limited. I would say Gaff is our target and beyond that we will to pick draft gems again and perhaps a backup ruck, although no ruck struggling to get a game at another club will want to come play for us (get a game ahead of Gawn will you?!)

That’s why I’m thinking an experienced VFL ruckman, they’d jump at the chance.

In order of my preference we have been ‘linked’ with the following so far this year: Gaff, Dahlhaus, Polec, Beams, Langdon, Taylor

We need outside pace and possibly another big defender.

When were we linked with Dahlhaus, Polec, Beams and Taylor?

Arent they just names thrown up for discussion? Hope you’re right though

Dahlhaus let Gus off the leásh. a couple of times yesterday which cost the dogs big time. May be a bit too unaccountable for us. Hîs good play is pretty good though.

perhaps at the right price.

Most media has speculated we ‘might’ be interested in him as he’s a free agent and we have no first rounder to trade to being in a player

(FWIW I tend to think he’s worth about what a Melksham or a Hibberd - or a Tyson? - might be worth, which is a mid to high second / low third round pick)

The thing about Dahlhaus is that he's been there before. If we can land him through FA and not take up too much of the cap, it'd be a coup if we can couple him with Gaff as well. All of a sudden in 2019 we have outside talent in Gaff, Dahlhaus, Fritsch, Hunt and even Stretch (who showed promising signs the other week).

For mine, outside of FAs in Gaff and Dahlhaus, I'd be really keen to get a mature aged ruckman (a plug and play) on the list to support Max.

Think outside the box...look for up and comers on the fringe at other clubs, don't just recycle the same names.

Trade our not getting a games or what we have surplus of & trade for needs...

Look to trade in to the first round with a package of players.

Would it be a waste of time, to have a talk to Zac Jones?

I would look at Jayden Short. Might get squeezed out of Richmond. 

Yep, I'd certainly be picking through Richmond's list for a zippy small forward. We really only have Jeffy that has genuine leg speed. If we could get a Richmond want-away for a 3rd rounder, I'd do it.

Gotta say the Gaff was brilliant on the weekend. Dahlhaus has potential, McGovern is a high quality defender as I don’t think Omac is going to make it. We don’t want Lever playing on the guerilla types, we need him playing with freedom to zone off, his best form at the Crows was always with Talila in the same team.

Not massive on Gaff, but he can do what 95% of our list appear incapable of doing, and that is hitting a target. Gaff definitely fits a need. I was leaning towards not trading for him, and ideally we wouldn't, but as the weeks go by, it wouldn't be the worst thing we could do. Thankfully we cannot trade 2 future firsts in a row, so I am confident we cannot stuff up our future (trading future first round picks away for blokes with ACL histories) anymore than we already have. If we do get Gaff and have to trade for him then I suspect it will be because we move on players - which I am 110% fine with (so long as we don't move on Brayshaw).

Make finals and players outside, will look at The MFC. 

How many midfielders would love to work with Max...

But we simply must get to September and make a statement.

On the contrary SWYL, players' who like a challenge would be turned off by this, as Max would be making it all too easy for them by continually palming it down their throats.

I think it’s been mentioned before, but I don’t believe you have to trade anything for a restricted free agent (just have to make him an offer which WC can elect to match thus effectively locking him in at WC) or unrestricted free agent. (I could be wrong though?)

"But Gaff’s status as a free agent has drawn greater interest this year – free agents can be recruited without a costly trade – although as a restricted free agent, the Eagles would have the option of matching any bid and forcing a trade should he choose to leave". - Sydney Morning Herald.

So we would not have to trade anything, unless Eagles are willing to match our offer at which point it would be upto us if we wanted to throw a trade into the mix which I would image we would not/could not. It all comes down to whether the Eagles can or want to match out offer. If they don’t, trading picks doesn’t come into it.

I think its been tragic we havent been able to develop another quality second string ruck at Casey in the time Max has beeen developing

should have 2 or 3 devloping prospects  in work at the moment Shoild be part of an overall strategy
