We all have a tendency to overvalue our own players which I too am probably doing with Zhamnov. .
I also offered up picks and prospects not named Koltsov, Kesler or Auld. Chubarov is a good 3rd line center and solid PK'er, he is not "table scraps". "Table scraps" IMO are players who are borderline NHL'ers(I agree King and Fed Fed would fit into this category although both are still young and talented). In any case, the Canucks don't need a guy like Zhamnov, so trading anything more then picks/prospects and depth players doesn't make sense.

And I thought you said today you were starting to warm up to the idea of acquiring Zhamnov.
That doesn't mean I'm going to trade a good prospect or a player like Jarkko Ruutu for him. I like the idea of getting him for fairly cheap(2nd round pick and decent prospect), if that can't be arranged, I don't want him.
