At least if it happens now you have almost 6 mil of cap room that you can use from LITR replacement. In October you can also use it but then you have to make a trade, by that point nobody is yet eliminated.
I believe LG's point is that we should sign someone anyways this summer.
He's right.

Even if Markov plays the last two months and is amazing, it's still a small sample and we can't take another gamble on him next season. We did it this year and got screwed, don't do the same mistake twice.

The cap space no longer is an issue imo. You have a lot of space now. We're also likely to fix the Gomez situation, either buying him out or sending him down. That would create a big chunk of change too. Not to mention the possibility of the cap increasing yet again.
