Unless the CBA makes some really major adjustments, they're going to be bleeding badly for the next half-decade.
You are reading capgeek wrong. Signing bonusses are included in "NHL salary". So it's a $13 million at once payment when the contract is signed, and then $1 million spread out over the season as regular salary, for the first year. In the following years I think the signing bonus is payed on July 1st.
