Tim Benz on Pittsburgh Hockey Now is sponsored by Blush Gentleman’s Club. For a while now it has seemed like there were three options for Matt Cullen:1. Play for the Penguins 2. Play for the Minnesota Wild 3. Play for no one and retireWell now there appears to be a fourth option:Over on DK Sports Radio, I spoke with former Penguin assistant coach Tony Granato. He was recently named the Team USA Olympic Hockey coach for 2018.
By daveynin from United States - Hello, Sid!, CC BY 2.0, Wikimedia CommonsBack in June of 2005, when the Penguins drafted Sidney Crosby, I had planned to predict that he would have three Stanley Cup rings before he turned 30, but I forgot. As it turned out Crosby carried the Cup he had just won for the third time in a parade in Cole Harbor, Nova Scotia on Monday. It was his 30th birthday. So, now what?
Reading tea leaves can be a risky business, but sometimes the conclusions are too obvious to ignore. Matt Cullen can still play hockey at the NHL level if he chooses, but the Pittsburgh Penguins will need to be more flexible than a magician’s assistant to make it happen. The Penguins simply don’t have the salary cap space, barring a trade which creates salary cap space or demoting a valuable NHL player like Carter Rowney, to accommodate the 40-year-old stalwart center. It’s a cruel world.
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".
