PHILADELPHIA — Nazem Kadri gave his head a shake. Two words came to mind when thinking of the worst slump of his career. Kadri has just one point in his last 17 games dating back to Dec. 2. It’s been 20 straight games without an assist, a seemingly impossible statistic for a guy consistently centering 15-goal scorer Patrick Marleau. His only point in 2018 – a goal – went in off his foot against San Jose on Jan. 4. He’s never seen anything close to this since becoming a full-time NHL player in 2013.
PHILADELPHIA — It only took three years, but Mike Babcock could hear the voices in the self-proclaimed centre of the hockey universe growing louder over the last few weeks. Why not shake up the lines? Why is Connor Brown not seeing more ice time? Why, why, why. It wasn’t anything Babcock hadn’t heard before. There is never any shortage of second-guessing of an NHL – and certainly not in Toronto.
Five new names joined TSN’s latest Trade Bait board, but the focus still remains on Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane. The record was corrected this week on the asking price with Sabres GM Jason Botterill reportedly looking for not only a first-round pick, a prospect and a conditional draft pick should Kane re-sign in his new hometown, but also a roster player in addition. Asking price aside, the big question is: What kind of market exists for Kane?
So sad to hear of passing of Red Fisher, an absolute legend in our industry. Glad we got to name one of our top honours @ThePHWA after Red. In typical Red fashion, took a while to convince him to lend his name to jt. He relented. "Ah, whatever, I don't give a shit." He was proud.
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".
