Strait is beyond expendable, he's been a solid AHL dman, but lovejoy is bigger, better skater, and has NHL experience. Lovejoy is not as bad as advertised. And lets face it they both would have been gone after this year anyway, with Depres, Dumoulin, and Morrow close.
Experience at being bad. There is a reason he was benched in the playoffs for Despres & it wasn't because Despres was playing really well. Losing Strait was just something that had to happen giving the depth but losing him before we lost Lovejoy was just stupid.
