He is contracted, so it's not that easy for him to move if we make everything right for him to stay.

If it doesn't work, and he's dead set to move on, then I think we should go for Logue. He hasn't lived up to a pick #8, but he's coming along now and can play both ends of the ground. If our KPD stocks are depleted, he would be worth a late 1st rounder to us. At least we know he can play.

1. Pretty sure Gould is on a one year deal this year and out of contract.

2. I think West Coast are in the box seat to get Logue if he leaves Freo. Logue is a WA boy and West Coast can make the cap space to fit him in (in a way that Freo can't) and can just walk him to the pre-season draft if Freo don't cooperate at the trade table.
