I don't understand why the "only one piece exchanged" thing is important.
In this game, White almost let his opponent off the hook by keeping the pace of the play so slow, even when it was to his advantage to speed it up. White probably figured that he could win as he liked since Black wasn't aware of basic chess principles such as controlling the center, developing pieces and contesting space.
