The Flyers will apparently have to restructure the five-year, $9 million contract they gave to free-agent forward Max Talbot on Friday.

According to TSN, the Flyers violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement by reducing Talbot's salary by more than 50 percent between the third and fourth years -- from $2.25 million to $1 million.

There is a slight chance the Flyers will be fined for the oversight.
