Since it's no longer the '90s and the St. Louis Blues are probably less nuts, an offer sheet is pretty unlikely, but it could happen.

Lou and Shanahan were involved in those, no? Maybe Lou uses an OS to blow up STL by signing Parayko. Dellow says they shed the salary to match if we go to 9+...

You giving up those draft picks for Parayko??  He's not worth near that.

And, if they don't, then the Leafs have to shed a bunch of salary just to fill out the roster.

So, that's a no.

Lou and Shanahan were involved in those, no? Maybe Lou uses an OS to blow up STL by signing Parayko. Dellow says they [can't] shed the salary to match if we go to 9+...

And, if they don't, then the Leafs have to shed a bunch of salary just to fill out the roster.

So, that's a no.

Yeah, it'd require a fire sale of JvR, Bozak, Komarov, maybe Martin -- which the Leafs ought to do anyhow. And you'd have to trust that internal options are ready to fill in. Nylander could slide into Bozak's spot. Platooning Rychel, Johnsson, and Leivo in JvR's spot could add some scoring, but probably not replace his, and any number of plugs could replace Martin and Komarov. You downgrade a number of positions, but add a 1D.

Parayko isn't a 1D.

I don't recall that clearly but didn't St. Louis make a move after that article was written?

They got Schenn (5.125M) for Lehtera (4.7), a 2017 1st, and a 2018 conditional 1st. They also moved Reaves (1.125M) for the 31st overall pick.
