I could see a scenario where Leopold is still ahead but gets traded to open up some cap space.
I haven't seen Butler enough to know if he's better than Leo. It seems the Flames fans weren't too fond of Butler in the same way many Blues fans thought of Leo. I believe there is a user that posts on HFCalgary named "IHateChrisButler"

I agree that if they are close, salary is the clear tie breaker and Leo should be moved if at all possible(and as IA pointed out elsewhere, we don't know all of the details in his NMC, so we don't really know how difficult that will be).
