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.
Budaj probably wasn't an option so they voted for Price in his place.
