Thats what most teams do. They dont trade one of their best young players.
Obviously, if you can move some dead weight to get a goalie, you do that. But I think that you need to look at just how few goalies there are that have done what Price has done at a similar age. He's already a legitimate NHL player (whether you think he's an all-star or anything like that is obviously a different matter) and there aren't many goalies that can say that at his age.
