This trade won't happen because it's not an equal prosposal all things considered. I hear what Jester has been saying about Price being more valuable should both reach their potential, and that's definitely true; Price is still an impact prospect and realistically an NHL goaltender right now. However, I see the two positions, and the likelihood of Giroux reaching his potential is more likely than Price reaching his. This isn't a certainty, but it's a point of contention.

More important when you consider this trade is what each player currently means to the organization and where they fit. Montreal is not going to sign both RFA goalies, so realistically they have a near necessity to trade one of them, while the Flyers need to keep some of the young cheap talent that they have. If this is the opening gambit of a potential trade, then there's nothing wrong with it, but the Flyers can walk away from this and possibly find a free agent goaltender, while the Habs have to look for another suitor if they expect a return of similar value.
