Well aware of when was traded thanks. Read my posts again. Maybe I should have said "his season only became viewed as down right awful after he was traded."
If stars told the whole story we wouldn't need scouts now would we. He did not have a superb season, but it was still a fairly decent year on a horrendous team. Then he was traded and everybody started commenting on how it was the worst year ever from a defenseman.

You want to know why Lubo was traded? Here are his stats the season before he signed his deal with one year remaining on his existing contract and then his stats after he signed the deal, but prior to the new contract and NTC kicking in.
2006-07 GP-69 G-18 A-40 Pts-58 PIMs-26 +/- +1
2007-08 GP-82 G-8 A-33 Pts-41 PIMs-34 +/- -18
Lubo was a turnover machine during the 2007-08 season.
Sorry, but it had everything to do with poor performance. Ask Dean or anyone else in the organization you can trust.
I remember Dean taking heat from some agents, but he made the right move for the organization. Visnovsky should thank him for giving him a contract that no team would have given him after the 2007-08 debacle.
