If a side could get him fit for a long enough period he'd be a bargain pick up as he can definitely play.

Hawthorn would surely be interested and could be handy for North if Thompson retires.

It'll be interesting to see what Lachie does come season's end, who was the last player to play at 4 different clubs over his career? I'm guessing that it would be Ben Hudson?

Still up in the air??? I wonder if we will give him a contract... With 4 good picks and atm 3 spots to fill on the list ( 2 1st rounds & 2nd rounds ) looking slim.. Only possible is if they delist a contracted player like St Kilda did today

I'm leaning to him staying now. If either party wanted out then surely we would have done a sweetheart deal during trade week to get him to whereever he wanted to go for pick 90. While he has dropped off a bit there is always someone looking for key position depth.

You have to look on the other side then, why haven't they signed him up?

They would have put discussions off until after the trade period because we didn't know our salary cap position. If TK trade had fallen through then we might have had to find $800k from somewhere and Henderson would have been a casualty for sure.

We currently have 3 position vacant on our main list, with good draft picks. Don't get me wrong I want to resign him but each day goes pass it's not looking good for him
