It would be monumentally stupid to say "No" to Pittsburgh, if they offered Jordan Staal for Jason Pominville

You build around Centers and Blueliners... wingers can be found to replace Pommer quite easily.
I think that's selling Pommer short to compare him to Justin Williams. Pommer is a much better player than Williams...

He's probably halfway between Williams and Hossa on the importance chart. He may not be the main piece you build a team around, but he's not just a glue player either.

(For the record, I'm not sold on Staal being the "main piece" either.)
