They're going to want young guys with manageable cap hits that they can get a few years out of. Taking Pominville adds cap money to that team.
The trade Pens fans really like is Pominville and Adam for Staal and Kennedy.
You're comparing current cap hits for Pominville and Staal. Staal's going to want more than $5.3M. That's why Pittsburgh can't keep him if Crosby signs. In that regard, Pominville's affordable for them.
