At 10 a.m. MT, the NHL free agency period opens, and teams can begin signing players. With all of the moves the Flames have made as of late, here’s a refresher on where they stand, and what they can do with their cap. This group, plus buyout penalties from Mason Raymond, Lance Bouma, and Ryan Murphy totals $65,134,210 of cap space spent. The Flames have $9,865,790 left in cap space. A couple of spaces have been left open, indicating some room the Flames may have to add a player or two.
On Sunday, at 8 a.m. MT, 30 NHL teams’ protection lists will be revealed to the Vegas Golden Knights, and to everyone else, as well. But since lists were submitted at 3 p.m. MT today, details have been leaking out. As it stands, we know just who the Flames have decided to protect, and there are absolutely no surprises on the list.
Because the Tampa Bay Lightning are one of a couple of teams with two really good goalies on their hands, naturally, we turn to them as a potential trade partner. Ben Bishop’s contract is expiring soon, and he’s a proven quality starter with a young up-and-comer on his heels. But let’s flip that around. What if the Flames traded for the up-and-comer, Andrei Vasilevskiy, instead? And what if they dealt Jon Gillies in exchange for him? So, this idea all came together earlier today.
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".
