they hit on 1, it's a good deal. They hit on Kaprelian and a position player, it's a great deal.

yup. Good trade for both teams.

NYY were basically hoping Kap would become Sonny Gray one day (or better), there's more of a need for this year and next year as opposed to 3-4 years down the line. Gray is a long-term piece that was so desperately needed by NYY.

After 2017, NYY had a possible rotation of:

Severino
Tanaka (if he doesn't opt out/he's looked so bad this year)
Montgomery
??

Maybe Sabathia returns, maybe Garcia sticks around, who knows. Severino-Gray is a great one-two punch. If Tanaka sticks around and returns to form in 2018, holy cow.
