manager Nick Austin hopes the club will be able to facilitate a trade for outgoing midfielder Paddy Dow, as the out-of-favour midfielder looks for opportunities elsewhere.
Dow was on the outside looking in for much of 2022, making only four appearances for the season, two of those coming as an unused medical sub, despite exceptional form at VFL level.
"The guys we brought in through trade last year have kind of meant opportunities at AFL level, particularly for Paddy, have dried up," Austin said.

Greg Williams delivers some blunt advice for 2018 AFL Draft No.3 pick Paddy Dow who was dumped from the Blues' line-up to tackle Sydney, just two games after returning from a long-running knee injury.
"I thought just watching him, he's just not desperate enough, not going hard enough and I'm pretty blunt, but I think you get what you deserve." Williams, who has recently coached Dow on a personal level, told SEN.
"Teaguey's (coach David Teague) obviously made it hard for him to get a game which is a good thing because he got a lot of games early, just straight in because he was a low pick."

Brothers Paddy Dow and
Thomson Dow are using time away from their clubs during the suspension of the 2020 AFL Season to train together and help their parents' fruit farm.
"If I was in Melbourne I would've been training by myself with all these new guidelines and rules, so to have Thomson here and to be training with him is really good," Paddy said.
"I've never liked training by myself, I feel like it can get a bit depressing at times but to have someone with you makes it so much more enjoyable."

Paddy Dow says he would love to have his brother and draft prospect, Thomson Dow, play alongside him at Carlton.
"It would be awesome," Paddy said.
"I've been trying to have a bit of a joke with 'Stuka' (Carlton recruiting manager Paul Brodie) and (list manager) Mick Agresta and the other recruiters, just to get them on board.
"I think our picks are a bit out of the way for 'Thommo', so I'm not expecting much. But it would be awesome, I'd absolutely love it."

"Now I'm focusing on earning a call up in the side, whenever that may be, and contributing to our team's success," Dow said.
"I want to go out there and keep earning the respect of my teammates and keep improving as a midfielder, learning from the likes of Marc Murphy and Patrick Cripps."

The brilliance of Carlton midfielder Paddy Dow's first-up performance in the Blues' pre-season clash against St Kilda has been enhanced after it emerged he played much of the contest with damage to his two front teeth.
Dow copped a bump in the first half from St Kilda backman Shane Savage but stayed on the park to help his side to an impressive 22-point win.
"He lost his two front teeth I think tonight. When you've got a first-round draft pick willing to put his head over the ball like that, I think it gives his players a lot of belief and trust in him," Blues assistant coach David Teague said.
