It's not just about meeting Markov. All parties must be available to come in. Maybe Markov is on vacation, maybe Meehan is busy with other clients throughout the NHL and can't come down for a meeting before. Maybe they have a verbal agreement to get things down and therefore, aren't in a rush to put it on ink and sign some papers.
You'd also think that with the draft only a week away, Gauthier is likely to be busy with that as well, not to mention also getting ready for the open market to pursue players that could go on day 1. The Cap number still hasn't been made official as well.

People read way too much into certain things.
