Let's keep in mind Lupul wasn't cracking the top 6, had a high salary, had a bad injury, and wasn't producing. At the time he was seen as a salary dump by pretty much everyone. Evaluating it as trading a top line PPG wing and top prospect for a #4 D is a bit revisionist when the Toronto media was describing it as a salary dump and a prospect who would hopefully turn into the player Beauchemin was at the time. Kessel wasn't traded for Seguin and company either.

Besides, Beauchemin is currently playing like a #2. Gardiner wouldn't be with Fowler.
