Smart move by both the Caps and Gonchar himself, who is taking the current uncertainty regarding his future to heart. The deal could take all weekend to go down, but the Caps, Leafs and Gonchar's own entourage have every reason to want to avoid an injury over the course of the negotiations. No reason to play while distracted, for any of the parties involved.

As the TSN article suggests, this just means the negotiations are serious (which everyone already knew), not that a deal is necessarily going to be inked tonight. It would surprise me if it takes longer than the weekend, though.
