Here's the quotation in question:

"Markovís agent, Don Meehan, said he and Gauthier are working on a deal for Markov and they will meet later this week at the NHL entry draft in Minnesota." http://www.montrealgazette.com/sport...635/story.html

Given the fact that the draft is this week, I assume it would be difficult for an NHL GM and one of the most prominent agents to find the time to sit down before the draft and hammer that out, given all the other responsibilities they have. Even though they aren't meeting right now, Meehan says they are working towards a deal. I would think that the in-person meeting would be the home stretch for both sides, barring a catastrophic turnaround.
