0 since it's LTIR. And even when it is LTIR you just get relief.

Cap hit limit = 10 Million

Ballard Contract = 2
Ballard put on LTIR
Team Cap Hit Limit = 10 Million + 2 LTIR.

Edit: It actually goes deeper than this; it depends on what your Starting Team Roster submission was. They tally up a total amount at the beginning of the year. Teams are RARELY ever 100% at the max cap; so you'd only get relief if the cap hit of the injured player went beyond the cap hit, but also an extra roster spot if they are put on IR or LTIR.

So to use the example above...

Cap hit limit = 10 Million
Team Cap hit = 9 Million
Ballard Contract = 2
Ballard put on LTIR
Team Cap Hit Limit = 11 Million.

You'll remember a few years past Canucks did they, they sent a few players to the AHL and recalled others to play with the numbers to get as close to the cap ceiling as possible.
