Putting players on LTIR doesnt take them off the cap unless they are replaced
It doesn't take them off the cap period. LTIR allows us to replace the player's salary, even if we go over the cap, but replacing Drury would have eaten up the little cap space we have. We are already pushing some of the bonus money into next year as it is. Once White clears, we need to send him down. If we need an injury replacement before Drury gets back, Gilroy can play 4th line or we can call up MZA.
