Price is a matter of perceived vs actual value. He is perceived higher than actual (even though Price has a very high ceiling) because the Montreal FO gambled with a top-5 pick for him. As Chris and others have pointed out, Montreal has a legacy of great goaltending, which is a curse for guys like Price, who are anointed as the next Jacques Plante / Ken Dryden / Patrick Roy before they even hit the ice.
That being said, it will take more than Coburn to entice the Habs brass to trade Price, who is arguably the biggest (read only) trading chip they have for the off-season. Coburn + Maroon, a much coveted big forward, maybe. I'd try Gagne + Maroon for Price + pick/prospect, which would give the Flyers an NHL-ready young goaltender with lots of upside and cap relief.
