Carlton is having arguably their best season in the last four or five seasons, sitting at the midway point of the season at five wins and five losses, with two winnable games of Brisbane and St Kilda in the next two weeks.

However, list manager Stephen Silvagni has his work cut out for him, with a number of stars and rising stars remaining out of contract at the halfway point of the season.

The biggest name on the list is undoubtedly Levi Casboult given his rapid rise as the club's number one forward and his ability to take big clunking marks, and despite poor kicking in the past, has improved in front of goal this season.

The 26 year old is in discussions with the club and the club remains confident that they will keep the big power forward at the club.

Other names include half back veterans Zach Tuohy and Kade Simpson, while youngster Nick Graham, who many see as a very good player, can't get into the senior side.
