It means Price garnered a majority of points in a vote system where 12 coaches voted 2 picks - 1 winner 1 runner up. We don't know how many pts were awarded for a winner vote as opposed to runner up vote. We also do not know the exact results.
In practice, Price might have won with only 2 coaches voting him first, and maybe 2 votes for 2nd place with some other goalies getting 2 votes for 1st and only one vote for 2nd. It's a possibility that this is how it went down. If so, it doesn't mean that a majority of head coaches think he is the best, or has been the best this season. It just means he got more points in that voting system. A bit like how Marois was elected with only 30ish % of the population actually voting for her. A majority of the actual total population did not want her.
This poll result just doesn't mean what you just said it means.
