nhl- CBA Talks- See you Tomorrow

from the CP, Neither side ever expected it would take this long but talks between the NHL and NHL Players' Association will continue yet again Tuesday in New York in an attempt to close out a labour deal.
There remains work to be done and now both sides have given up trying to predict when the deal will finally be done. "There remain a number of outstanding issues to resolve and a fair bit of legal documentation to get through," NHLPA senior director Ted Saskin said in an e-mail. "Everyone continues to work hard at this but it remains difficult to predict when we can get through all that remains to be done."
After meeting until 2 a.m. EDT Sunday night, the two sides reconvened at 7:30 a.m. EDT Monday and wrapped up around 9:30 p.m. EDT. Both sides then met for internal discussions late Monday night.
Talks are expected to resume around 8 a.m. EDT Tuesday, the ninth straight day the two sides have met in New York.
