There’s nothing wrong with the Chicago Blackhawks bringing Patrick Sharp back. Particularly for what he’s costing them: Virtually nothing. Chicago will take an $800,000 cap hit to have its former star wing back in the lineup this season. Sharp, 35, struggled last season in Dallas, but he’s a familiar face in the Windy City — one that had a lot of success during his first stint with the ‘Hawks. So no, there’s nothing wrong with bringing him back at that price.
The Nashville Predators found a formula that worked pretty well for them this past year. And they plan on sticking to it going forward. Their recipe for success calls for high-end goaltending, elite defense from arguably the most loaded blue line in hockey, explosive production from the trio of Filip Forsberg, Ryan Johansen and Viktor Arvidsson up front, and what essentially amounts to a scoring-by-committee approach outside of that top unit.
There have been plenty of moves around the NHL this summer. The arrival of the expansion franchise fueled many of them, and a need to become cap compliant forced a few others along. But none have been bigger than the blockbuster trade that Chicago and Columbus pulled off on June 23 — the morning of the draft. In that deal, the Blackhawks reacquired Brandon Saad — the 24-year old winger they had originally drafted 43rd overall in 2011.
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".
