I disagree. I think Michael Hibberd has been the best addition but I would also add in Bradley Hill, Jarryd Lyons and Nankervis.

Nankervis is ok, but he got smoked by Sinclair and Naismith last week. Easy to understand why we got rid of him.
Hill has been very good, Lyons is a decent player in a bad team, nothing more.
Tom Mitchell and Tuohy will be the only ones around the money in the AA team, I would think.

Whilst the others mentioned are still relative youngsters.

Maybe we could start a thread where we nominate our Team of the (traded) Year?

Do it. Can we include Ryder in that list, as this is his first actual playing season for Port and I would have him clearly number 1 ruck ahead of Nankervis?

You can't include Ryder as this is not his first year playing for Port Adelaide, he was there the year before the suspensions. The query would be on Carlisle and Melksham.

With Nankervis it depends on how you are judging it. He is an enormous upgrade on what they had at the position, and he has had a very good season (even if he has been a little down the last couple).
I think Lyons is much better than 'decent' but due to him playing at Gold Coast (and Adelaide before that) does not get the recognition he deserves.

A quick pass:

Hibberd (Melb)            Hamling (Freo)            Tuohy (Cats)

Hanley (GC)               Marchbank (Carl)        Lewis (Melb)

Hill (Freo)                    Prestia (Rich)              Lyons (GC)

Hoskin-Elliott (Coll)     Stewart (Ess)              Caddy (Rich)

Kersten (Freo)            McCarthy (Freo)          Hrovat (Nth)

Nankervis (Rich)        T.Mitchell (Haw)           S.Mitchell (WC)

Steele (St K)              Witts (GC)                    Stevens (St K)        Williams (Nth)

Others: Smedts, Pickett, Palmer (Carl), McKenna (Melb), Cloke (Dogs), Vardy (WC), Black (Geel), Frost (Bris), Dunn (Coll), O'Meara (Haw), Deledio (GWS)

If you were to include Free Agents then Wells (Coll), Henderson (Haw), Barlow (GC), Brown (St K) and Green (ESS) would be considered, although injuries would be a problem for 2 of them.

Good that you had Witts in there. He has been excellent for Gold Coast this season and I would actually have him leading the ruck.
