Have the Blackhawks already shut the door on next season’s playoffs? The Corey Crawford decision suggests they might have.

If it had to be his last win in a Blackhawks uniform, his last chance to celebrate with Chicago, Corey Crawford couldn’t have picked a better final bow than his 48-save jewel in a Game 4 victory against the Vegas Golden Knights in August.

Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford makes a save in the first period against the Predators on Feb. 21, 2020, at the United Center.

That night, the two-time Stanley Cup champion posted a 48-save night in the final postseason game with the Blackhawks, which included 96 playoff games during a 13-year career. Another great performances came when he faced 52 shots in an overtime loss to the Blues on April 17, 2014, .

Vintage Crawford.

But ultimately the Hawks lost that series to the Knights in five games and surprised some by even making it that far in the postseason.

Majority Of Business Leaders ‘Open’ To A Four Day Week, Poll Suggests

An overwhelming majority of business leaders are open to the introduction of a four day working week, a new poll suggests.

A total of 79% of more than 500 business leaders said they were either “very open” (47%) or “quite open” (32%) to a four day week, the Survation poll shared with HuffPost UK showed.

The survey, commissioned by the 4 Day Week Campaign and the think-tank Autonomy, also referenced concerns that firms could see their wage bills increase if a four day week was introduced without workers having their pay cut.

But the positive response to the idea suggested that this is not a major issue for companies, the 4 Day Week Campaign said.

Britons work longer hours than almost all other countries in western Europe but its productivity lags behind many EU rivals.

History suggests Justin Trudeau’s national child care proposal is already doomed. Could Doug Ford be its saviour?

Repeating the same behaviour usually leads to the same outcome. If that maxim were to hold true in the case of the latest federal bid to preside over the creation of a national child-care program, the project could be dead on arrival.

Here is why:

It is not a lack of federal interest that accounts for Canada’s patchwork approach to child-care and early childhood education.

Since the mid-eighties, every prime minister — with the notable exception of Stephen Harper — has, at one time or another, had child-care on the agenda.

Over Brian Mulroney’s first term, legislation to implement the embryo of a program was actually passed in the House of Commons. It died in the Senate in the lead-up to the 1988 election and was not resuscitated afterwards.

A national child-care program figured prominently in Jean Chrétien’s 1993 platform, the Liberal Red Book. It subsequently became a casualty of

Trump Bans DoD Diversity Training That Suggests US Is Racist

President Donald Trump issued a sweeping executive order Tuesday banning the military’s use of diversity training programs that suggest that the United States is “an irredeemably racist and sexist country.”

The move is an extension of a prior ban that applied to government workers; the latest order would also block the agencies from paying for “divisive” training programs supplied by federal contractors.

Trump said his order is aimed at combating a “pernicious” ideology taking root in the U.S. that “some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.”

“Unfortunately, this malign ideology is now migrating from the fringes of American society and threatens to infect core institutions of our country,” he said in the order.

However, nothing in
