North Melbourne are building to a busy off-season in the player market, with the club reportedly loaded with cap space and a hunger to bolster their stocks for next season.
The Kangaroos have had a promising run of form since their bye, managing wins against the Suns, Eagles and Blues while also recording a draw against the Giants.
The influx in premiership points have shown promising glimpses for the club's future, however there are areas for improvement, which could be aided via the upcoming exchange period.

This week the Kangaroos have been linked to out-of-contract Demons forward Sam Weideman, with attacking reinforcements seen as a key area of focus for coach David Noble.
When speaking on Sportsday, Noble stated that assistance for in-form forward Nick Larkey and further depth at half-back are sure to be focal points for the Kangaroos this off-season.
“I think another partner for him (Larkey), and another small forward,” he said on Sportsday.
“We’ve got some really good talent and speed in there, but another little robust forward in through there.
"Maybe even looking a little bit further for some more support for ‘Hally’ (Aaron Hall) off half-back.
“I think they’re probably the areas of where we are looking.

“We’ve got most areas covered, but I think forward line is certainly one that we need to give consideration to in the next year or two.”
The Kangaroos were able to add a trio of promising figures to their list last year in the form of Jaidyn Stephenson, Aidan Corr and Atu Bosenavulagi.
The club have also seen great promise from a number of draftees, with top selection Will Phillips and midfielder Tom Powell showing strong debuts seasons at Arden Street.
