I have questioned delisting 10 players. That is partly though due to what I’m reading on this year’s draft (that it is shallow), and also that I’m only referencing senior list players.
I also believe you need some depth, and question letting players in the best 22 go. I would be surprised if Watson and Kelly both are pushed (if they choose to go that’s another thing) as they’re both best 22. Myers is contracted. Dea is contracted. We almost certainly need to keep one of Hocking, Bird and Howlett, and my preference would be Bird. We almost certainly need to keep one of McKernan and Leuy, and arguably both unless we’re getting a ruck cheap ala Stewart.
Ironically, you don’t have Morgan on that list and I’d consider him to be on thin ice.
So really, I look at your list and find the idea of even losing 9 senior listed players pretty dubious. If the draft is weak, its also likely we don’t want to delist 9 senior list players either.
