The cap is 59.4 mil. Assume we are currently at 57 mil. Putting Frolov on LTIR would allow us to go up to 60 mil (proration factors into all this, but I'm ignoring it for the sake of simplicity).

Now assume we are at 59 mil. We put Frolov on LTIR and we can go up to 62 mil.

In order to really see any benefit, we'd first have to spend to the cap, then put Frolov on LTIR. And remember, these are all prorated amounts. The actual amount we'd have to spend would be less, and we still need cap space for the bonuses.

So I really don't see the Rangers putting anyone on LTIR. Frolov is the only player who won't be back, it looks like, and he doesn't make enough the rest of the season to pay off our bonuses.
Yes, I already understand all that. The point being is that we will make some form of deadline acquisition. So can we retroactively place players on LTIR to gain additional cap space.
