I'd have no problem with Pominville long term in his early thirties, on a similar $5.5M tag he's at now. What he would add to the team would probably be worth more than whatever player they pick with what hopes to be a mid round pick by then.

If he asks for too much, he'd walk, and the Avs dont' give up their 1st, and clearing Jones's salary and opening up a spot for his replacement isn't that bad a thing.

Pominville would be absolutely perfect for this team as a 30 goal scorer and potential PPG guy. He would be a perfect fit next to Staz and Landy IMO. Whether they can get the right deal done is another question.
Well the Sabres wouldn't trade Pominville for a draft pick that's 2 years away and there's a lot of contenders who would out bid us rather easily.
