The 2023 Draft and Trade Targets Thread

That is massive over compensation for a team with possibly the best young midfield in the league already. They just need time for their kids to come on. If that compo is accurate, it basically ruins the first round of this this years draft and I'd be hoping we trade out into future if possible, as our picks after 5 (which becomes 7) become weak. 

Incentive for clubs to irresponsibly slash and burn a bad list.

It’s a ridiculous amount to be given them. They can now get Harley Reid and still manage to have 2 top 10 picks this year if they trade well. 
Picks 2 & 14 for pick 1. Still leaves them with pick 3, 11 and two future firsts. Crazy. Can you imagine they could pick up Reid, Duursma and O’Sullivan from this draft. 
 

With your point about trading out of this years draft and into next years- they( gettable)did have a quick run down of the top draft prospects for next year. 90% were midfielders. I’ve been very keen on us trading out our future first and getting pick 4. But given the capital other have to throw at that pick will push the cost up and given how compromised the pointing end of this draft has become we might be better to hold onto our future first.

With the likely midfield exodus of JJ, Harmes and Dunstan we need to invest there. 

I think it would be a good idea and wouldn't be surprised if we were after Xavier Duursma at Port.  He's been injured, hasn't been playing well and is behind Rozee, Butters, JHF, Wines and Drew, they also have Sinn who has hardly played.  I believe we rated him in his draft year and he showed early on that he can play.  He's stalled.

Port have to acquire Ratugolea, Zerk-Thatcher and Sweet and are reported to be chasing Soldo - all with limited draft assets.  They need some list turnover with their disappointing result yet again.  

Duursma is 23y2mo and is out of contract at the end of next year.  Might be a classic buy-low play I think.

While I don’t hate the idea of asking the question about Dursma I had been thinking of helping port out another way. They need draft capital for ZT. Zauva and street and only have pick 37&43. Could we ask for there  F1st and send them 23&32. Would give us 2 1st round picks in consecutive years.

Unless it’s used in a different deal I’d probably rather 23 and 32 now than wait a year to use 12-18.

Goalkicking mid , with poise, speed and accurate left foot yes please

I hope we get him and push up to the pick we need to secure him with our first pick. Most phantom drafts have him at 3-5 range

Absolute jet! just what we need

 

Would love to nab him and play him in that “quarter back” role that N Daicos plays for the Pies

Riley Beveridge reporting on SEN Crunch Time that the AFL are going to recommend an assistance package to North Melbourne of:

- End of first round pick in 2023

- End of first round pick in 2024

- End of second round pick in 2024

- No priority access to Riley Sanders 

** Pick 3 compensation for McKay is a separate issue. Will “likely happen” but won’t have anything to do with assistance package.

Wouldn't mind us having a look at Sydney's Logan McDonald. Hasn't done enough given he was a high pick initially but have felt the potential is there. Perhaps tie it into the possible Grundy trade. Would require us to add something to the pot.

How is his tank, speed, defensive pressure and how is his kicking? Is there a chance he can debut on the half forward line use athleticism to be hit up on a wing/running back into f50 space at some point next year after the bye? Think of a young and skinny Hipwood, although 8cm shorter. Hipwood played 10 games in his 2nd year and then 20 in his 3rd, kicking 11 and 30 respectively. 

Good point Dem I also have had private thoughts he could come on as a tall smart moving HFF in his development. Using all his footy skills in a different role till he fully grows to a key position role. 

It's not so stupid a question or indeed a proposition. Let's see how he develops in 2024 after another full pre season of muscle and weight.

This would be a good result as there has been quite a bit of talk they could get pick 11 as well - which would have set out second pick back even further than it already is!

Without reading the article I presume it infers we will trade for pick 10 from the Suns after the dogs nab pick 4 with 10 and 17.

What we do with 5, 10 and 13 is what is of interest to me. Either take 3 players or trade up using two of those picks are the two obvious choices.

10 + 13 for Cats pick 7?

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
