Lombardi at the time was injured with no clue when/if he'd return and has underperformed since returning. Franson was, and remains, a 3rd pair d-man who can chip in on the PP. Moves were made based on information available at the time. I seem to have missed when they turned into the second comings of Gretzky and Orr who no team could ever live without. It's funny how 2011-12, without them, the team did quite well.
You need to get your head out of the sand. Using exaggeration and grandiosity doesn't suddenly make your point valid.

Fact:
1) no one is making any such claims
2) Lombardi did not miss the season opener
3) Lombardi has been dealt, twice?, since we had to pay over a million dollars and Franson to unload him
4) Franson may be a third line defenseman by your eye, but he has put up points and had a huge role in the playoffs for two teams.

Opinion: this was a bad deal. It was bad at the time. It is worse now. Can we move on and stop defending it?
