Toronto Maple Leafs: What an Absolute Thrashing That Was
I love watching the Toronto Maple Leafs play, I love researching the team and trying to uncover every unturned stone within the organization, especially when they’re this good and only will be getting better. I’ve said it all along and I’ll say it again, what a great time it is to be a Leafs fan, eh? I joined Editor in Leaf back in mid-February 2017 as a Contributor and quickly fell in love with writing, talking about something I’m passionate about each and every day.
I remember saying around this time last year that the League’s revenue sharing would go up with the installment of the Vegas Golden Knights and in turn, be good for the Toronto Maple Leafs. It just means more room to sign our boys, Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitchell Marner, lots of room for Lou Lamoriello to play with. Funny thing in regards to Lou, I was actually in an elevator with him yesterday, but that’s a story for another time and there’s not really much else to it.
I’m ready for round two with the Toronto Maple Leafs squaring off against the Calgary Flames, the first meeting lived up to expectations, hoping for the same tonight. Life’s funny sometimes and that’s my only explanation for my absence lately, but a little personal note I will give about myself is that it’s funny in a good way. However, nobody came here to read about Andrew, you came to read about our beloved Leafs and understandably so.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
