Might be wrong though, and this doesn't obviously affect Luongo because he's not on a 35+ contract.
Ltir does count against the cap, Pronger counts and so does Savard. You just get an emergency allowance to go over by that amount but you can't acrue cap savings. A few of these guys on LTIR and you could be screwed in the off season because they still count and could easily chew up the 10% off season overage allowance.
