It is an incredible time to be a fan of sports video games, with NHL 18 standing tall as the latest example. The console generation sits in a sweet spot where sports games from EA Sports can add features on top of a strong base game after years of fine-tuning the gameplay itself. This means fan service in the form of requested features and deeper modes more accessible to broader audiences. NHL 18 takes on both areas in stride as cover star Connor McDavid does speeding down the ice and making plays.
All NHL players eventually reach a point in their careers when their skills begin to deteriorate. For some of the league's current stars, such as Washington Capitals left wing Alex Ovechkin and New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, the decline could become noticeable in 2017-18. Some, such as Ovechkin and Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry, saw a surprising decline in production last season that perhaps signals the inevitable downturn in their respective games.
During the upcoming 2017-18 NHL season, several teams could be active in the trade market. Every club has trade assets but some, such as the New York Islanders, could have more to offer. Various factors could determine which teams make moves this season. Some, such as the Islanders, Colorado Avalanche and Winnipeg Jets, could need a roster shakeup if they once again struggle to reach the playoffs. Promising clubs, such as the Toronto Maple Leafs, could be forced to retool if they take a step back.
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".
