During the trade period, the AFL released an advisement to the clubs of their compensations for losing players to free agency. Under these rules, according to the AFL, a club is not automatically entitled to compensation for the loss of a player but can be compensated for any net loss of free agents to other clubs based on the new contract offer to the player (which reflects his position within all contracted players within the competition) and his age. All compensation selections allocated but not traded must be used at the upcoming draft on November 22. The clubs were allowed to trade their compensation selections through the remainder of the trade period.

It was determined by the AFL that the following clubs would receive the following compensation draft selection and a REVISED order for the draft. The revised order takes into account the trades that were made during the trade period.

St Kilda - Round One selection (Brendon Goddard)
The selection for Brendon Goddard will be immediately placed behind the Round One selection of St Kilda in the indicative NAB AFL Draft Selection Order that was supplied after the Grand Final (this selection will now be number 13).

Port Adelaide – Round Two Selection (Danyle Pearce)
The selection for Danyle Pearce will be immediately placed behind the Round Two selection of Port Adelaide in the indicative NAB AFL Draft Selection Order that was supplied after the Grand Final (this selection will now be number 30).

Port Adelaide – Round Two Selection (Troy Chaplin)
The selection for Troy Chaplin will be immediately placed behind the Round Two selection of Port Adelaide in the indicative NAB AFL Draft Selection Order that was supplied after the Grand Final (this selection will now be number 31).

Melbourne – Round Three Selection (Net Result for Shannon Byrnes in/Jared Rivers and Brent Moloney out)
The net selection for Melbourne after the Free Agency Period will be immediately placed behind the Round Three selection of Melbourne in the indicative NAB AFL Draft Selection Order that was supplied after the Grand Final (this selection will now be number 49).

West Coast – Round Three Selection (Quinten Lynch)
The selection for Quinten Lynch will be immediately placed behind the Round Three selection of West Coast in the indicative NAB AFL Draft Selection Order that was supplied after the Grand Final (this selection will now be number 62).

Based on the age of players Chris Knights (Adelaide Crows to Richmond) and Tom Murphy (Hawthorn to Gold Coast Suns) and the contract offers made to them by their new clubs, no compensation was applied to their former clubs for their departures during the Free Agency Period.
