NHL trade deadline will show Blackhawks the value of salary cap space in a flat-cap world

Trades like the Lightning’s acquisition of former Blue Jackets defenseman David Savard provide new information about trade dynamics in a flat-cap NHL. | AP Photo/Paul VernonThe Red Wings and Sharks each received fourth-round draft picks for taking on $1.1 and $1.4 million cap hits this weekend, setting a precedent that could benefit the cap space-loaded Blackhawks. After more than a decade of almost constantly pressing up against the salary cap, the Blackhawks now find themselves the envy of the NHL in terms of cap space. Even better for the Hawks, this newfound flexibility comes at a time where cap space is more valuable than ever before. The moves around the league ahead of Monday’s 2 p.m. CT trade deadline should reflect that changing dynamic and make clearer cap space’s true value in t

That they lined that trio up for their first series against the Padres does not seem like a coincidence. “I think that you can read into it any way you want,” Roberts said Sunday. “But I think that making sure guys are rested and feeling good goi

Doctor predicts you’ll have to get a COVID-19 shot every year

There’s a good chance you’ll have to get the COVID-19 vaccine every year, according to a local doctor. Dr. Sunil Joshi, president of the Duval County Medical Society Foundation, said he predicts people will have to get the COVID-19 vaccine every fall or winter, just like the flu shot. “Cooler weather tends to allow viruses to spread more rapidly,” Joshi said. Doctors are hypothesizing the vaccine is effective for up to six months, like how antibodies from getting the infection last for three to six months. “We may need a booster this fall or the upcoming winter, and we’ll potentially have a seasonal vaccine after that,” Joshi said. Jacksonville resident Cathy Barnwell told News4Jax she’s on board with that. “We get the flu shot every year, and it’s better than being sick and being in the ...
