No, not one bit since Markov will be back this season.

LTIR only matters if the player is done for the season (see Lang last year, that allowed us to exceed the cap and get Schneider as his ''replacement'') OR if you are dangerously close to the cap and need to call-up players due to the injuries, which puts you over the cap, thus the need to use the LTIR (see the Bruins this week with Lucic and Savard).
