Exactly, JVR and Bob have salaries of only 900k, but the bonuses between the two of them total in excess of $1.5 mill. I dont know how many of those they are likely to get, but that could easily be another $1mill in capspace.
And those are just the two with the biggest bonuses, other players have bonuses added on as well, and technically, none of the bonuses really apply until the end of the season. Capgeek automatically assumes all bonuses will be met when they give you cap hits.
Also, LTIR is currently keeping us from "banking" any capspace, so the Flyers have to go very strictly by the daily cap calculations, which is the norm for them the past few seasons.
