    On the labour front, the two sides met from 12:30 p.m. EDT to 7 p.m. EDT in New York on Monday and went at it again 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    A tentative deal on a new collective bargaining agreement is expected within the next week.

    What's taking so long? Sources indicate there are still some issues - none perceived as critical - being negotiated while the actual process of drafting the long and complicated document is slow and laborious.

    An announcement could come as early as Thursday but could also drag into next week

    So much for Eklund's "report" that the meeting was still going on past 8.

    I've always found it hilarious that people fall for Eklund's play-by-play... as if they are sending him, or anyone, e-mails from their Blackberry during potty breaks.

    Not defending him or anything, but you don't think the Globe and Mail has ever reported anything inaccurate? And if you read his blog, it says it APPEARS the meeting is still going on. Nitpick much?

    No, you need to read the entry more closely. He said it APPEARS to be a long week ahead. He stated that they were still meeting at 8:16pm. Pretty clear to me.
