A deep dive into the Chicago Blackhawks' salary-cap situation

  A deep dive into the Chicago Blackhawks' salary-cap situation For a team that hasn’t had a lot of recent success, the Blackhawks are in a tough spot from a cap perspective.  Even with Shaw’s LTIR, they don’t have a lot of wiggle room to use this season and while they’re probably not going to be buyers at the trade deadline, the lack of space makes it a bit harder to retain money to get a better draft pick or prospect in return.  Next season is going to be quite difficult with around $22MM in cap space and half a roster to fill including both goalies.Down the road, the pending contracts for Kane and DeBrincat are significant.

So far, Tehran refused any direct contact with Washington, believing that the enemy country had to "change their attitude" and return to the 2015 agreement before considering talking to him without intermediaries.

It is therefore a size inflection.

  'Ask daddy to wake up': Loved ones of PS752 crash victims still seeking justice two years on Loved ones of victims of Ukrainian Airlines flight PS752 say they are still hurting two years after the plane was shot down outside of Tehran, Iran. Ukrainian Airlines flight PS752 took off from the Tehran International Airport in the morning of Jan. 8, 2020. Several minutes later it was struck by two ground-to-air missiles, killing all 176 people onboard, including 138 who had ties to Canada. Two passengers, Arshia Arbabbahrami and Kasra Saati, were bound to return to Calgary after visiting friends and family in Iran. Mahfam Mahroyan, Saati’s wife, said her husband was coming back to Canada after spending part of his paternal leave in Iran.

but they take place between Tehran and the great Powers still members of the agreement concluded in 2015, while the Americans participate indirectly without having met the Iranians so far. The European Union plays mediators.

The United States has warned in recent days that the settlement approached.

"We have, I think, a handful of weeks to see if we can come back mutually in accordance with the agreement," said the leader of American diplomacy Antony Blinken. "Iran is getting closer and closer to the moment when it could produce, within a very short time, enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon."

Another sign of optimism, a spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Monday that it was "possible" to find an agreement on nuclear power but also for the release of four American citizens held in the Islamic Republic.

The spokesman reacted to Washington's statements, which seemed to make a connection between the two files.

"It is very difficult for us to imagine back in the nuclear agreement while four innocent are selected hostage by Iran," reaffirmed Monday Ned Price. But he assured that there was "no direct or explicit link" between these negotiations, because the return in the 2015 agreement is "at best uncertain", while the government of Joe Biden wants that "the return of these Americans are certain ".
