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.
This was a matter of opinion. There were a lot of folks starting to wonder if having him on a long term deal was a good idea after that season. Add to it Dean's commitment to a total re-build after that season and trading Lubo was the best option. I don't think there was anything malicious about it. Lubo put himself in a bad position with his poor play.
