It's all about the money. NHL has already made a $100K payment with a $1 million payment on Monday (Pretty sure that's the date - it could be later in the week) and then one final payment is due after that.

Fehr and Daly talked yesterday, are scheduled to talk again today, and there could be a face to face later today or tomorrow in a last ditch attempt to close the gap. If progress is made the league will hold on cancelling it until the weekend and see how it progresses. If no progress, consider it done they cancel it tomorrow and save the $1million+ in payments due.
