Nope. The bonuses listed in 5.2(a)(iv) are the bonuses paid by the league. They do not count against a teams cap.

A player may negotiate additional individually negotiated "B" Bonuses which do count against the cap. For the Calder (under Exhibit 5.2(a)(iv)) - no individually negotiated "excess" is allowed.

Every Player party to an Entry Level SPC shall automatically be deemed eligible for the
Individual "B" Bonuses listed below, which, if earned, shall be payable by the League
in the
amounts set forth below. There is no limit on the number of League-wide Awards/Trophy
Bonuses and League Performance Bonuses that an individual Player may earn in a League Year
that are payable by the League. For example, if a Player finishes 2nd in the Hart, 3rd in the Selke
and 1st in the Lady Byng, he will receive all bonus amounts associated with each such Leaguewide
Award/Trophy Bonus. In addition, if he also finishes 3rd among NHL forwards in goals,
2nd in points, and 4th in points per Game, he would also receive all bonus amounts associated
with such bonuses.

A Player and Club may also negotiate individual bonuses payable by the Club for the
League-wide Awards/Trophy Bonuses and League Performance Bonuses set forth below, except
where specifically stated otherwise
, in amounts to be individually negotiated between a Club and
a Player (the Club and Player could agree to pay more, or less, than the amounts payable by the
League, set forth below). The maximum aggregate amount that a Club can pay a Player (in
addition to any amounts paid by the League to such Player) on behalf of a Player's Individual
"B" Bonuses is $2 million per season. There is no limit on the quantity (as opposed to the dollar
amount) of League-wide Awards/Trophies and League Performance Bonuses a Player may
receive from the Club.
(a) League-wide Awards/Trophies. The following are the only awards or trophies
for which Clubs and Players may negotiate bonuses: the Hart Memorial Trophy
("Hart"), the "Rocket" Richard Trophy ("Richard"), the Vezina Trophy ("Vezina"),
the William Jennings Trophy ("Jennings"), the Norris Trophy ("Norris"), the
Conn Smythe ("Conn Smythe"), and the Frank J. Selke Trophy ("Selke").
In the
event that the National Hockey League creates additional award(s) of like stature
in the future, Clubs may award bonuses to Players in connection therewith.
...
(iv) A Player who finishes among the top three (3) in balloting for the
Calder shall receive the following bonus amounts (no individually
negotiated "excess" allowed
):
Winner $212,500
2nd $150,000
3rd $100,000
