Clearing the mind -- and the notebook -- off Sabres development camp before the NHL heads into what figures to be a quiet few weeks:Keeping it real -- One of the key points new coach Phil Housley made about camp was how impressed he was that the team's development staff kept things fresh every day. On-ice drills were different each day and were done at a crisp pace, and the players had several off-ice activities as well to learn about life as a professional player. Even cooking.
Ted Nolan's contract with the Sabres ran through the 2016-17 season and he's finally off Terry Pegula's books. So now the two-time former Buffalo coach has a new job in hockey. Nolan, 59, has been named the coach of the Polish National Team and was introduced in Warsaw on Tuesday. His staff will include Tom Coolen, an assistant under him during his second stint with the Sabres from 2013-2015. “I love challenges.
It is less than three months since the Sabres fired Dan Bylsma and Tim Murray. Less than three months since they essentially started over in the middle of their rebuild. People around the NHL were downright baffled. As far down as the franchise had fallen, who pulls the plug on the coach and the GM after just two years? What happened to the plan? It seemed like things were in chaos. Well, you really can relax. There is no chaos here.
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".
