Any officer worth his salt would have known what happened to Captain Picard.
He may have known what happened as a matter of fact, but emotionally, as a husband who lost his wife and the father of a small boy who lost his mother, he couldn't get past what had happened 'because of' Picard. Knowing something in your head is one thing, being able to cope with it in your heart is another.

This was the writers' way of helping set up DS9 and its crew as being different from Rodenberry's 'perfect' 24th century humans.
