Providing this information is correct

Salary Cap

Long-Term Injuries:
A player expected to miss at least 10 games and 24 days due to injury can be listed as a long-term injury (LTI).
An LTI can be covered by replacement players, as long as the replacement salaries do not exceed the salary of the injured player.
If the replacement salaries would push a team over the salary cap, the team is allowed cap relief, but only for the portion of the salary that exceeds the cap.
When the injured player returns, the team must immediately comply with the normal terms of the salary cap.

What kind of replacement can we get? It obviously allows us some money to spend for a top 6 winger on the short term but what about when he comes back January? His 4.75 mil would put us really close to the cap limit unless we pick up someone on the cheap.

I almost get the impression if we make a move now for a top six winger, there is no move to be made at the trade deadline unless we end up in seller mode again at that time.
