Good trade for the Kraken, but why didn't the Caps just do that from the beginning?

Probably dictated by the Kraken, plus other teams via trade.  No way they thought Driedger was going to be their #1, and there was no guarantee they'd get a #1 in free agency.

Fair value. I was encouraging people to not totally destroy Francis and Co before the actual season starts.

 

He is a very smart man, and obviously had a different plan of what he wanted to do. 

 

After the Schwartz, Grubeur, Wennberg signings, their roster is looking better. 

 

Exactly, after the expansion draft I kept telling people this is NOT what the Kraken lineup will look like opening night...they'll be active and I imagine they aren't done yet as they still have around $16 million to spend.

It was likely a side deal, or being discussed prior to the draft - not uncommon in expansion. Kraken essentially got a free 2nd round pick and still have their #1 goalie.
