Walkers cap hit never wen't away. LTIR doesn't take guys off the books it simply allows you to replace them and the replacement player adds to the total salary you can pay this year (if that player takes you over the cap and assuming the replacement player is less than or equal to the player he is replacing). Since we are not at the upper limit having players on LTIR really means nothing.
IE. Since Svyret has been recalled tonight, he will count against the cap. If he was recalled as an LTIR replacement, his daily salary would be added to our upper limit.
