Maple Leafs Could Use LTIR Strategy to get out of bad contract

A bad deal for two veterans of the Maple Leafs
Two of the worst contracts given out were to defenseman John Klingberg and forward Ryan Reaves, and early on the year, they may be the team's two biggest weaknesses.
Now, it's been revealed that Klingberg is battling through some tough injuries, with the veteran blue liner skating but not playing, much to his disappointment in Sweden.
Could the Leafs use LTIR to get off his horrendous contract?
In recent weeks, Klingberg has been placed in many trade scenarios as salary filler, with the team likely needing to use a sweetener to get out of his deal, but now, there may be another way.
At this point, nothing is certain, but if the Leafs want to get out of his contract and have the ability to add key defensive pieces without giving up sweeteners in a deal, things are certainly aligning for that to happen.
