A look back at a trade period that brought four new players to the Saints.
TIME will be the ultimate determining factor, but all of the early signs suggest St Kilda’s last two trade periods have been extremely productive.
The science of list management is littered with examples of misfortune and mistakes and the Saints are not exempt from this unfortunate reality, although it would appear Ameet Bains and his team’s shrewd work since the end of 2013 has begun to pay dividends already.
The 2013 Trade Period was when St Kilda’s list re-shaping truly began to take full effect.
From this trade period onwards, St Kilda’s direction was unequivocal.
In years to come, the 2013 Trade Period will be seen as the moment the Saints began their climb.
