A likely scenario. Unless, he moves soon for a low draft pick to clear room on the roster, I think they'll end up buying him out in the summer and someone will take a gamble on him then, when he can be picked up at a cheaper rate. He's missed 40% of games since joining the Leafs in 2009/10. I can't see in a shortened season too many teams wanting to take on that sort of gamble at this stage, especially given his inclination towards taking penalties and his injury record.
