CHICAGO — The agent for Ryan Miller put a proposed one-year, incentive-laden contract extension for his client into proper perspective Thursday. To the mathematical layman, the concept is as clear as advanced calculus. To agent Mike Liut and the Vancouver Canucks, it could add up to addressing salary-cap concerns and also providing the veteran goaltender, who turns 37 next month, with a suitable salary plus added incentives.
CHICAGO — Cal Foote has probably touched the Stanley Cup and sipped something from it. He just doesn’t remember — and that’s no surprise. The Kelowna Rockets’ defenceman, who’s expected to be selected here Friday in the latter half of the first round of the National Hockey League draft, was 2½ years old when his famous father, Adam, paraded around the Pepsi Centre in Denver with the Cup.
Skeletons. Every National Hockey League club has them hanging in the draft closet. You can almost hear the rattling of bones when whispers of missteps magnify into great debates of what went wrong. The Vancouver Canucks have their share of hits and misses and because you never really recover from first-round flops, it’s difficult to pass them off as managerial mulligans. It’s also easy to give a golf clap for great late picks.
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".
