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.
Yup makes sense, and actually, almost 100% predictable right?

Personally, I just assumed there'd be a push in the days leading up that deadline so that one, or both groups, could claim they're trying to "save the WC for the fans". It's such an easy and obvious opportunity for these guys to try to score some PR points, so it surprises me little that whispers of "meaningful" discussions between Fehr and Daly are making the rounds.
