How about you consider all the factors for one? Price was more than fine that season and Halak just rode out his momentum despite the team scoring lots of goals to keep him in position, his playoffs success was in large part due to Subban, Gill, Gorges, Cammalleri, Gionta who played like world beaters yet he eventually got exposed for his lack of rebound control and lack of size (screens were his kryptonite). Patches was red hot into the NHL but he fizzled out and the team stunk so it made sense to send him down as it might not have been in his best interest to stay on a sinking ship.
