Former first overall pick Nail Yakupov did not receive a qualifying offer from the St. Louis Blues and is now an unrestricted free agent. The once highly-touted and exciting Yakupov has fallen on hard times as of late, scoring just 9 points in 40 games for the Blues last season. News 1130’s Rick Dhaliwal diligently worked the phones with NHL agents on Monday and got word from Yakupov’s agent, former Canuck Igor Larionov, that the young Russian is interested in signing with the Canucks.
The NHL will release the list of players protected by each team for the expansion draft on Sunday, which is sure to precipitate a fresh torrent of roster speculation leading up to the official announcement of the Las Vegas Knights’ roster at the NHL Awards on June 21st. The Canucks list isn’t hard to figure out, until you get to the final forward. Should the Canucks protect Brandon Sutter or Brendan Gaunce?
The Vancouver Canucks finished 29th in the NHL in power play percentage last season, scoring just 32 goals on 227 opportunities. When you take into account the 6 shorthanded goals they gave up, the Canucks actually had the worst goal differential in the entire NHL with the man advantage. It’s clear that something had to change and, given Willie Desjardins’ unwillingness to change the personnel due to “chemistry”, the change had to come to the coaching staff.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
