2. Due to Leo's no trade clause, he has the ability to refuse an assignment to the AHL. Basically, he would have to consent to go to the AHL, which I doubt he would, but I guess anything's possible. I doubt the Blues would do that though because they're paying him 2.25M regardless and he's not SO bad that he can't be the team's 7th Dman. He's not nearly as bad as some people would lead you to believe. Certainly not worth the money he's making, but he's an NHL dman.
Do you think there is a chance Butler is genuinely ahead of Leopold on the depth chart, ignoring salary cap ramifications?

I could see a scenario where Leopold is still ahead but gets traded to open up some cap space.
