Not at all. LTIR only provides cap relief for the portion of the salary of the injured player's replacement that exceeds the cap; it doesn't remove a salary from the cap. As well, using LTIR for a significant amount of time during a season messes with the amount you can bank towards pro-rated cap space later in the year, helpful to add salary at the trade deadline.
