Re: Talbots Contract
As free agency opened up Friday, the Flyers were busy making moves continuing their team makeover.
One of those moves has come into question.
According to TSN.ca, Max Talbot's five-year, $9 million contract is in violation of the league’s salary cap rules.
Talbot reportedly is set to make $2.5 million and $2.25 million respectively over the first two years of the deal but only $1 million in each of the final two years.
This would violate the league’s salary cap rules, because the final two years of the contract can not be less than half of either of the first two years.
Consequently, the Flyers will have to give Talbot an extra $125,000 in either of the final two years (increasing his salary to $1.125 million).
Although the Flyers are unlikely to face a penalty according to the report, they will have to restructure the deal to fit within the salary cap parameters.
