Forgot Kent. Has to be tradebait, but his value has diminished significantly on the back of injuries and regression. If we somehow manage to offload Kent, it may give Kennedy a reprieve as a rookie, but unfortunately I don't see how that happens considering Goody is refusing to pick him despite unreal VFL form. Is he a chance for the JJ Liston Trophy?From here, I think it's pretty clear what will happen with most players.
Trenners - retires.
Hulett - delisted.
Mitch King - rookie/1 year/delisted
Spencil - will demand 2 years I think, will get a chance elsewhere if he doesn't get it
White - gone
Vanders - 1 year extension
Vince - 1 year extension
Filipovic - don't know enough about him
Frost - 2/3 years (his call)
Kennedy - gone
Bugg - 1 year
Garland - but nobody will take him. I'd love to see him prove everybody wrong, still
Wagner - see above, without the proving everybody wrong!
Wouldn't trade Kent, his value is as low as it'll ever be.Forgot Kent. Has to be tradebait, but his value has diminished significantly on the back of injuries and regression.

Not sure why we'd delist a first year ruck prospect in Filivopic.It seems like the following senior listed players will be going at the end of this year;
It sounds like Spencer and Frost might both be looking at other options, Col Garland could retire and Lamumba is thankfully gone already.
With Mitch White likely to join them on the way out from the rookie list, and Filipovic potentially in the line of sights as well, I am not sure how many more list changes we would want to make in one year.
Linked to Lever, and maybe we can pull something else out of the hat, but I doubt we want to be going to the draft looking to take 6-7 new kids. May as well keep some blokes for depth for another year, going to be more use if we have injuries than an 18 year old rookie. Hurts me to say it after this season but we probably need to give Vince another year purely as depth rather than taking one extra kid.
Yeh true, I forgot that this was Filipovic's first year. Probably not a lot of point drafting an 18 year old ruckman in the first place if you are only going to give them one year, so we should give him a little longer.
I would presume that only one of he & King survives for next season, though with Spencil potentially on the way out I may well be wrong...
I agree mate and so he should.I'd be surprised if we cut Vince, he'll probably just get a one year deal on minimum wage.
Hope so mate!!I wouldnt worry about those three guys
Deals should be done over the summer
All staying at Melbourne, including Garland.So a few important players of ours become free agents next year.
