Well the quote states the wolves got beat, if it was simply a telling off, I don't think it would be put that way. Depending on your interpretation I can see this quote meaning two things.
1) The wolves where set upon one of the lost legions, but the wolves got the hell kicked out of them.
2) The wolves where sent to shake up a legion, similiar to the way the Emperor and the Ultramarines put the Word Bearers in their place, but instead the targeted legion kick the wolves in the balls and sent them away.
I think it would be more interesting for it to be the first as well as a lot more plausible seeing as either way the Space Wolves did get beat and if it was a known legion who did it, they wouldn't of been seen the way they are by the other legions.
I seem to remember that a legion had more than just the space wolves to contend with, wasn't it in first heretic where the word bearers where also involved in it?
