Monster Trade Rumor: Carey Price involved in block buster trade to Colorado

According to former NHLer Philippe Boucher, a trade between the Montreal Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche would make more sense than anything else.

As he appeared on TVA Sports' JiC, Boucher claimed that Price would be the ideal fit for Colorado for them to win the Stanley Cup in the next two to three years.
One day, if they want to get younger between the pipes in Montreal, there is Philipp Grubauer who could come in return, Boucher stated on JiC. In Colorado, they selected a young left-handed defenceman named Bowen Byram in the first round of the draft and he would be a great fit in Montreal. In my opinion, in Colorado, what's missing to win the Stanley Cup in the next two or three years is Carey Price. 
Boucher is currently the general manager for the Drummondville Voltigeurs, and states that a part of his job is to make trades happen, and that sending Price to Colorado would make the most sense.

This seems like the 1995 trade that rocked the hockey world when the Montreal Canadiens sent Patrick Roy and Mike Keane to the Avalanche for Jocelyn Thibault, Martin Rucinsky and Andrei Kovalenko.

The Avalanche would be able to acquire price as they are currently $8.35 million under the salary cap and would be able to take on Price's $10.5 million price tag.  Do you think Montreal would be willing to part ways with their star netminder?
