That's certainly a possibility but I wouldn't want to give up much to sweeten that deal. Very low end prospect or 5th round pick at most. If Army can swing that, more power to him; he'd have to be very motivated to dump Leopold's salary for that to happen. And I really can't imagine Leo accepting a trade to a non-contending team. I know teams like the Blackhawks do it all the time, so if something like that goes down I guess the Blues will have entered hitherto un-tread ground.
