By that logic, kill them all. But Negan's end game here isn't revenge, it's control. He wants Rick's group to be highly functioning, but subservient. He wants them to become his hunters and gatherers, so that on his monthly visits he gets half of their supplies. To do that, it helps to have a leader who is smart and capable, but broken.
Ultimately I don't think Negan gives a crap about his people who died. He will replace them with Rick's group and carry on. What he can't have is anyone challenging his authority, and right now he thinks he has Rick under his thumb.
