If I remember right, that was at least partly a way to get around exposing Beauregard (and possibly Ruuttu) to the Tampa/Ottawa expansion draft. The Sabres had an unused goalie slot after dumping Clint Malarchuk, so Beauregard went there. The draft was on June 19, so the timing makes sense, and then the following deals put Beauregard back where he started and made the only real trade Hasek for Ruuttu and a fourth-rounder (what the futures eventually became.)
