Panthers Players Salaries (cap-hit)

I was taking a look at NHLSCAP.com and I noticed that Frolik, Ellerby, Sweetland and Garrison all have cap hits over 1mill. Now I am not suggesting that these players aren't worthy of this type of money, but how is it that it could be this high without them playing a game in the NHL. I am especially surprised at Sweetland and Garrison coming right out of college and garnering this type of cap-hit, whereas someone like Matthias is only at 850,000 (after dominating in the OHL and world juniors)

Anyways, here are the numbers, I am curious as to what you all think about it because I thought there were restrictions on entry-level contracts, or are the cap-hits higher than the players actual salary for some reason??

08-09 09-10 10-11
Keaton Ellerby 1,300,000 1,300,000 1,300,000
Jason Garrison 1,280,000 1,280,000 RFA
Michael Frolik 1,275,000 1,275,000 1,275,000
Andrew Sweetland 1,030,000 1,030,000 1,030,000

Alright, I just realized that these are the "cap-hit" numbers (rather than actual salary), but why are they higher??

These have to be with bonuses. Entry level contracts cannot be above 1 mil. Besides, unless they play with the big club, their salaries don't count against the cap anyway, so don't worry about it.

Unless they're on the Florida Panthers roster, they'll be on two-way contracts at Rochester for a fraction of the money they would have been paid if on the 23 man roster.

Right, but if they're in Rochester, their salaries don't count against our cap.
