Price becomes a top 5 goalie in the NHL, it was not a maximization of assets.
No team in the league needs a goalie right now, and the second one does, there will be a good 5 teams banging on their door trying to give them one, including the Habs. On the other hand, just about every team in the league needs a good young defenseman, again, including the Habs.
You make good points but the point I high lighted in bold does not make sense to me.
You have to draft any player at hopes he becomes what you drafted him to become. Price was drafted because the Habs and probably 10 other teams think he is going to be a franchise goalie. Montreal got lucky with the draft lottery and they had to take that chance.
And in my opinion it was a very good decision they made.
