Actually, as you yourself have articulated, we can. We can also renege on our commitment to either Broomy or Murray or both.
I quite comfortably stand by what you quoted above - without one of those two highly unlikely circumstances above coming to pass we're stuck with only adding three players via the draft(s) at this point in time.

If anyone is actually hoping that we might reneg on the undertaking to rookie Murray and Broomhead (who are both still contracted for 2019) then that would be an exercise in folly from where I sit, as doing so would land us squarely in a legal and/or public relations ****storm (not to mention potentially pissing $200-$300k down the drain for each of them and still likely having that bulk of that sum count towards our 2019 TPP).

Don't get me wrong - I'd love to have the Murray situation sorted and have another live pick in one of the draft(s), but it's pretty clear at this point that we'll have to wait until Murray is banned (if that does actually happen).

Murray is a possibility due to his situation, but i strongly doubt the club would renege on such a commitment to Broomhead once that had been arranged, and he or another club didn't offer an alternative. It would be a huge public slap to a good citizen of the club, apart from other possible consequences with managers and such.
I agree, but that doesn't mean it can't happen or that another club might grab him before we get a chance.
