The Flyers said today they would not comment on whether newly signed center Maxime Talbot’s 5-year, $9 million contract violates the collective bargaining agreement.

TSN.ca reported the contract could be in violation because the final 2 years can not be worth less than half of either of the first 2 years of the deal.

The final 2 years are worth $1 million each; the first two years are worth $2.5 million and $2.25 million.

According to TSN, the Flyers would need to restructure the contract by bumping either the fourth of fifth year to $1.125 million.
