It seems that everyday there is a new story about Dylan Shiel leaving or staying at GWS, one day Carlton the next Essendon and then Hawthorn.

Shiel, who is contracted for next year, has been given permission to meet with clubs- but with many potential suitors there is the question “will he be worth it?”

Nobody can deny that Shiel has been a big part of the Giants midfield in recent years, but in another midfield where big names are limited, will he have the impact he has had at the Giants?

After Dale Thomas moved from Collingwood to Carlton his career started to and still is going downhill, the same could happen to Shiel.

In a successful Giants midfield Shiel has made an impact, but could that only be because he has big names around him?

If you put him in Carlton’s midfield he obviously will not have the impact he has in a better, more successful Giants midfield.

A first round pick, early or late, is too much to lose.
