I'm not too knowledgable in advanced statistics, but I have to think that there is a bit of a difference in the role that Kubina was asked to play in TB and what we expect his role to be here... plus, who was he paired with? (Legitimately don't know).
He had the second most TOI out of TB's defensemen (823.78, behind Eric Brewer). His top 5 linemates, in order:

Eric Brewer, Brett Clark, Martin St. Louis, Steven Stamkos, Vincent Lecavalier.

Yes, his role here will be different, but I really don't get the point of adding him unless another defenseman is out.
