Well, Fehr gave an interview at the CAW event in Toronto yesterday and said both sides had a deal in principle for all major areas except the traction one (not sure what traction is btw) and that was their last hurdle to get over before an offical deal was reached.

IMO I think both sides are extremely close to getting er' done so it could make sense Duchene would go play overseas for three weeks. The thing that throws me off though is that now Crosby is contemplating signing a contract overseas....
