MELBOURNE Summary: The Demons have had a stunning trade period, ending up with two picks inside the top seven and strengthening their team with hard-nut Tomas Bugg and Jake Melksham.

Retired/delisted: Leigh Adams, Nathan Grima, Scott McMahon, Eric Wallace, Max Warren. Draft Order: 17, 26, 28, 47, 73, 91, 109, 127.

RICHMOND Summary: The Tigers held firm on not giving pick No.12 for Chris Yarran and got their man in the final half-hour.

Retired/delisted: Matt Arnot, Nathan Foley, Chris Newman, Chris Knights, Matt McDonough, Ricky Petterd. Draft Order: 12, 52, 88, 106, 120, 124 ST KILDA Summary: Paid a premium for Jack Carlisle but the club - overseas indiscretions not withstanding - are delighted to have their man. Have not lost any premium players in the off-season and should improve in 2016 off the back of their trade efforts. In: Jack Carlisle (Essendon), Nathan Freeman (Collingwood). Out: Nil. Retired/delisted: Daniel Markworth, Tom Simpkin, Arryn Siposs, Adam Schneider, Spencer White. Draft order: 14, 45, 68, 81, 99, 117. SYDNEY Summary: The Swans have their eye on academy talents and are likely to use the point values of their draft picks to bolster their squad.

Out: Craig Bird (Essendon), Lewis Jetta (West Coast), Retired/delisted: Adam Goodes, Mike Pyke, Rhyce Shaw. Draft order: 33, 36, 37, 44, 54, 69, 72, 90, 108, 126. WEST COAST Summary: The Eagles have probably broken even in the trade window, losing their vice-captain but gaining Jack Redden, trading away Matt Rosa for Swan speedster Lewis Jetta and swapping rucks. A lack of major change at the grand finalists is probably what Adam Simpson was looking for. In: Jack Redden (Brisbane), Lewis Jetta (Sydney), Jon Giles (Essendon). Out: Matt Rosa (Gold Coast), Scott Selwood (Geelong), Callum Sinclair (Sydney). Retired/delisted: Will Maginness, Dylan Main, Rowen Powell, Beau Waters. Draft order: 23, 31, 62, 75, 93, 111, 129. WESTERN BULLDOGS Summary: Absolute non-players in trading but gained a premiership star through free agency. Matt Suckling should come into their best 22 after arriving from Hawthorn, while Luke Beveridge will feel like hes gained a new player in Tom Liberatore, who missed the entire 2015 season. In: Matt Suckling (Hawthorn). Out: Michael Talia (Sydney). Retired/delisted: Ayce Cordy, Sam Darley, Matthew Fuller, Brett Goodes, Jordan Kelly, Daniel Pearce. Draft order: 20, 21, 30, 51, 87, 105, 123. TRADING PLACES - STYLE ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES AT YOUR FAVOURITE CLUB After winning the 2015 AFL premiership with Hawthorn earlier this month, Matt Suckling has jumped ship and signed for the Western Bulldogs Talia hung out to dry over claim MICHAEL Talias manager is confident the AFL will soon clear the new Sydney player of leaking game-sensitive information. Talia, then playing for the Western Bulldogs, came under investigation after last months season-ending elimination final loss to Adelaide. The Bulldogs called in the AFL amid allegations Talia leaked information to his brother Daniel, who plays for the Crows. Michael Talia joined the Swans yesterday in one of the last deals of the AFL trade period. We had no other option, after what went on there (the Bulldogs), Talias manager Liam Pickering said. I believe it (the investigation) has been concluded Ive spoken to one of the guys today at the AFL and I think theyre writing up their report at the moment. Id say theres a decision coming on that which I fully expect to be positive for the boys. Since the story broke last month, Pickering has defended the two brothers, saying Michael in particular has been hung out to dry. Its been a really unwanted distraction (and) its been extremely unfair on Michael and his family, he said. It (the trade) is good for Michael he can get on with it now and become a Sydney player. Tigers snag Yarran at last minute A GAME of cat and mouse forced Richmond to wait until the final 30 minutes of the trade period to secure a deal for Chris Yarran. Carlton knew it would send Yarran to Punt Road for pick 19 but wanted to complete a swag of other trades before releasing him. The Blues yesterday landed pick 11 in the draft in a swap with the Western Bulldogs for selections 20 and 21 and tried, but failed, to recruit Greater Western Sydneys Adam Tomlinson. Yarran was off-loaded at the death to ensure the Blues werent in possession of selection 19 when they were dealing with the Dogs. Stephen Silvagnis daring list overhaul has handed Carlton four picks inside the top 20 for the first time in the clubs history 1, 8, 11 and 19. As late as Wednesday night, the Blues were demanding Richmond surrender pick 12 to get its hands on Yarran. Richmond football boss Dan Richardson last night admitted to frustration at the standoff. We were really confident hed always end up at Tigerland, but things dragged on a little bit longer than we would have liked, Richardson said. I lost a little bit more hair, not that I had much more to lose but in the end its a good result for the club.
