He is not, in point of fact, a 1st line RW'er. You can try and change the spots on a leopard, but at the end of the day, he is still a leopard.

Jason Pominville was, is and always will be a line 2 RW'er, averaging 65 points a season with some decent PK and 2 way forward skills.
Should he fetch alot? Sure, if his concussion injury doesn't hold him back.
Should he be the center piece of a trade deal? Absolutely, but once again, his injury this past season will play a negative roll in his worth prior to this season.

Is he replacable? Enter one Zach Kassian. Yes, he is replacable.
Is there someone ready to step in, even Kassian, to replace him? Only training camp and the preseason will determine that.
I remember lots of post about Pominville not being a #1 RW. Where they at?!?
