Doesn't sound like a deal gets done tonight, but the negotiations will be back on tomorrow, likely with the mediator still in tow

Bill Daly on reluctance to end talks for the night "No reason to break off at this point. We will keep going as long as it makes sense. 1/2

Cont. "As soon as it doesn't, or it may be counterproductive, we will break off."

it's a done deal folks. i dont have concrete proof, so i dont expect anyone to believe me, but i'll tell you guys what my cousin told me. he has a friend who works with CBC human resources in toronto. the league has told cbc to get ready for the season. said the deal is just being finalized now but an agreement was made. not sure if they will announce tonight or not but all thats left is paperwork at this point.

Teams were advised two weeks ago to keep dates open for a 48-to-52 game sked. The NHL will try to keep as close to old sked as possible.

NHL-NHLPA talks still ongoing. Slow progress. Breaks now and then for caucusing. Disregard people who say deal has been reached already.

Daly said talks would end tonight if it goes counter productive.

NHL deputy commish Bill Daly email to Post-Dispatch seconds ago: "It’s been a long day already and meetings are continuing.... (1/2)

Daly contd "Dialogue has been good & there has been a healthy give & take. We resolved some open issues but still have a number to go” (2/2)

I'm a bit scared that Daly is making public statements. Like someone else said earlier, I expect the deal to come almost unexpectedly. Leaking info may not be a good thing.

I believe you, but the information you are getting isn't being interpreted correctly. Several different people are being asked to make preparations with the hope that a deal gets done. Fact of the matter is, no one knows exactly where they stand in negotiations on all the issues except those that are in the board room. Even the people in the room wouldn't be able to say if or when a deal will get done. The one piece of information I do have, which is a fact, is that the deal is not yet done.

On contract variance #NHL offered 30% yr to yr but kicker is no yr can be less than 60% of the highest salaried year. #NHLPA wants wider gap

Cap, Variance, Contracts, Min Salary year 9.... haven't found out if towels remain an issue.

I'll say one thing about this lockout.

I haven't seen any hockey, but I've learned a lot about how the labour laws work!

Agreed.

This isn't a done deal yet. Stil some things to work out.

The talks have hit the 12 hour mark between the #NHL and #NHLPA.

No blow-ups as long as they're talking.

Caucusing again in New York. Bill Daly says progress remains slow but steady. Still going #nhl #nhlpa

Just heard from a solid source that now NHL/NHLPA want 52 game season. That's a very solid number!

..."hill we will die on".... "poised to cancel another season"......

We've reached 2 a.m. in midtown Manhattan. The word from the bargaining room is "still going."

Mediator still in meeting but told he's not playing as much of an active role right now.

Pensions are apparently still being dealt with:

Been saying all day,new pension is Defined Benefits Plan for players...issue being discussed is how teams will limit long term liability.

Source says both sides "working hard trying to reach agreement on the outstanding issues."

I'm in the West coast so it's not too late

Many reporters believe a deal has got to be close when you're still doing it at 4 am

Via email, update from NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly: "Making progress."

I like it vague.

I'd sign up for a sex change at at this point ...

Would be shocked if sides came out with an agreement tonight...would also be shocked if tonight's marathon wasn't the begining of the end.

Hockey Gods sign ? Little snow falling from the sky in NY.

Darren Dreger ‏@DarrenDreger
Latest intel from Manhattan-Marathon-Madness...the two sides intend on pushing until no more can be accomplished tonight\this morning.
