No, that's not correct. The $12,000,000 figure includes the signing bonus. If you hover over the "?" beside the NHL Salary header, it reads "The Player's total salary in a given season, including signing bonuses."

So for this year, it is $8,000,000 signing bonus plus $4,000,000 salary for a total of $12,000,000 (before pro-ration for effect of the lockout).
