The problem is that the article was written in the summer of 2012. Then he spent 2013 being put in much easier defensive minutes, and got dismantled with them.

The Sharks tried to manage his icetime and matchups, and it didn't help. So they found a taker for him and traded him, even though they were buyers otherwise.
