After Adelaide forward Shane McAdam officially submitted his trade request to Melbourne, various exchange ideas have been floated regarding the compensation the Crows' list committee will demand from the Demons.
While draft selections form the typical trade recompense, an understanding has developed that the Crows may request a mature-aged player in return for the livewire forward.
Herald Sun journalist Jay Clark reported last week that Adelaide could seek a solidified player in exchange for McAdam, though the Demons are unlikely to be willing to part with a difference-maker, leaving ambiguity around what the eventual deal will consist of.
We've explored three possible trade scenarios that result in McAdam donning Demons colours by the end of October.
1. Demons send fringe midfielder packing
Harmes is out of favour at Melbourne, and while he's a contracted Demon, recent reports suggest there's enough external interest in the utility to be expendable this off-season.

While Harmes probably wouldn't serve as much more than a decent depth piece at West Lakes, he does fit the 'mature-aged player' bill the Crows supposedly covet.
