What are the likely out comes of putting a Blue over a Leaky White?

The blue (male) is probably best described as a Blue Wheaten Marans
The Leaky White came from a breeding pen of white X wheaten/buff (are they the same?)

Yes that's a lottery!

Start with leaky white. I guess that's heterozygous for dominant white. So 50% of its progeny will inherit dominant white, so will likely be leaky whites.

Of the other 50% ... it sounds like they're all wheaten based? So you'll get wheatens in black or blue. Maybe.

When my black laced red roo went over the dominant white hen, 100% offspring have been leaky dominant white unless i just have been unluckiy.
