I'd even say schizophrenic, specially after trading Carter & Richards without flinching. You can like Bryz's chances of making a come back sure, but for Price, I'm ready to bet that not too many GMs would make that choice.

Edit: well that said and re-reading myself, Holmgren is insane.. So there's no telling..
Why then would the Habs be willing to move(as you call it) a generational talent in Price? By your account it may be decades before they find another tender with that talent.
To call one of the best GM's in the league insane...well that alone puts doubt in the stability of your commentary above.
