When he arrived in the America, Cortez burnt his ships in order to motivate his troops as they could no longer back down from their mission. I see the Huet trade as more or less the same thing; Gainey removed Price safety net, and in the process motivated him to deserve his job as a starter. I'm not saying it wasn't a risky strategy, nor that it could have worked with any other player, but that's how I see it.
