Well, we would.

We took him at 29, when it was a high risk, high reward option.
The risk is a lot lower now, and the reward at least as high....That means his draft/trade value would have increased significantly.
If your did not get Tom Lynch , I think Shai is worth what Adelaide get from Mitch McGowan.

If Shai keeps going the way he is going, someone will offer him a 4 year $2 m deal.

At the start of the year he was worth a pick in to the 40s or 50s.

He is now worth a pick inside the top 20. And his upside may be one of the highest of any player in the AFL.

Has done way more than Jed Anderson had done at the same age, and he went for a pick in the teens.

Going very early here it's been 4 games and Jed Anderson didn't go for a pick in the teens.

If i had a choice of pick #20 or Shai Bolton i would take Bolton

With the draft this year being very 'shallow' I wouldnt trade him to be honest

More likely he signs a decent contract and stays

Yeah their not bad , like you say he’s gone from being on base contract minimum wage, basically worth a token pick to now top 20/first rd pick off the back of one game..

Your valuing seems about spot on. Already wanted the dogs to have a look before this surge in form, but now I'd be really keen. If he does leave the Tigers though, it's almost certainly going to be WA.
More likely we'd go for Butler since he's struggling to force his way in, and were desperate for small forwards

Would rather keep him.
He’s not going to Freo, they told Ralph they weren’t interested even for peanuts last year.

Will sign another 2 year contract on average player payment terms.

Needs to continue to improve his defensive game to become a regular in our side.

He was pick 29 when we drafted him, aged 17. If he'd been 3 weeks younger he would have gone top 20 in the 2017 draft, no worries.

Doesn't matter because he'll sign a new deal with us.

Cool, try your luck in 6 years with a multimillion dollar offer.

Can we take Logue off you guys ? Compared to Bolton we should be able to get him for #72 as he has not had that 1 game yet

you make me laugh.

When it comes to trades, two things happen. First is that recent draftee lose value because draft picks are overrated and second when a player is out of contract the club loses value.

Bolton for a late first round and maybe a swap of late picks might be fair, but history says teams lose out on un-contracted player with less than 50 games. Not fair but it's the reality.

it comes down to games.

If Bolton is in the seconds he's gone but if he stays in the first he stays.
Agreed.

Reckon Richmond should off load Rioli and let Bolton take his spot in the best 22 (Rioli is too injury prone)

Big wrap for Bolton, I would probably offer our Crows pick for him, can't see him leaving Tiger land, the playing group there are probably the closest in the AFL
