I mean, if this team does have any kind of significant injury, it's backs against the wall as far as the cap is concerned.
Yeah, and barring a season ender which would free up the LTIR space permanently, it isn't like you can just go out and acquire a short-term fix... which is the real benefit of having a cap cushion. If you have that going for you and you suffer an important injury, you can get a decent player and not get *ed when the injured guy comes off LTIR.
