I've looked but haven't been able to find any restriction on a team acquiring a player by trade after these playoffs and then using a compliance buyout on his contract this June. You would have to assume that any team contemplating this would check with the NHL to make sure everything is in fact kosher. Looks like an interesting June coming up, but I'll be surprised if the Leafs end up buying out a contract that they don't currently have.
