Its the exact OPPOSITE of what you said.
The point is Kipper will play 35-40 games and Irving played well in his 7 games in the nhl most nights holding his team in the game it just doesn't make any sense to trade for another backup goalie when we need this year to see what we have in Irving. If Irving reproduces his numbers from last year we could have a solid backup for years and a potential #1b type goaltender to not give him a shot and trade for a guy that is most likely a #1b doesn't make any sense for this organization.
