With it looking likely that Coniglio will re-sign with GWS, attention will turn to Whitfield who will be a free agent next year. Will definitely receive more money from other clubs with GWS having to pay the likes of Kelly, Cameron and Coniglio big money. Whitfield is arguably GWS best player and would be a huge priority, however, I wonder if money can tempt him? And if GWS get whiff that he is likely to leave they may prefer to trade him out this year for a kings ransom as opposed to the FA compo they'd receive next year. FWIW I think he'll also stay at GWS. Cameron, Kelly, Coniglio and Whitfield would be the core 4 at GWS that they'd want to keep as with those four players on the list they should be able to compete for the top 4 for the next 5 years.
