Seriously? I don't remember that at all. They didn't even meet for 3 months after the lockout started, let alone a 9 hour meeting till this hour on a Saturday/Sunday.
You could be right at the end, but the deal got done in July so there was no real urgency or reason to have marathon meetings like that.
But if so that's a very good sign. Maybe Stern told Bettman that the only way these things get done is by putting in long draining hours and keep at it. Bettman listened, just sent Daly instead.
