Boston is tied up, can't trade quickly/drop valuable players to waiver, and the Leafs get Kessel at a price above the cap of Boston

Is this possible?
Boston has 7 days to match, giving them 7 days to find a way to get the salary in. With Kessel being injured, I'd imagine it gives them another month or two after that to figure it out.
