Sounds like its highly unlikely, but you never know. Is this true?
No, he won't get paid.

Some more notes:
- While the free agent status thing may be true, that would probably just a bonus. Leino is coming off IR and the Sabres had to make a move. Their 3 waiver-exempt players have been all playing too well to send down (Hodgson, Foligno and Flynn). They would have probably had to choose to waive someone.
- Grigs can now play in the AHL once the Remparts season (and playoffs) are done.
