If you're still not sure add up the NHL salaries on Bryz' contract and divide by the # of years, it will match his cap hit. Another indicator: the maximum compensation a player can receive in a year is 20% of the salary cap. $15m would be more than 20% of the $64.3m cap.
I stand corrected. CapGeek numbers are wrong, and so are a lot of current reports of Bryzgalov's compensation this season.

The original news coverage indeed mentions $ 5M in bonuses and $ 5 M in salary:
