Yes it is because I said that Konowalchuk wasn't an impact player and that he essentially doesn't fill a big need. I never said that marquee players are the only players that can make an impact as the edited quote you used suggested. In fact, I even mentioned the Kasparaitis deal and he certainly isn't what I would term a marquee player. I was being case specific about Konowalchuk and not about all trades in general. Maybe I wasn't clear enough originally, but I'm talking about Konowalchuk's importance and I personally don't see him adding much to the team.
