The Blackhawks did not tender a qualifying offer to Dennis Rasmussen, making him an unrestricted free agent and all but certainly ending his Blackhawks career. A source said over the weekend that the Hawks were likely going to qualify Rasmussen — which would require only the league minimum of one year at $650,000 — but something obviously changed. A versatile and handy bottom-six player, Rasmussen played left wing and center for the Hawks, and was a strong penalty killer.
Joel Quenneville is just as curious to see what the Blackhawks’ defense looks like as everyone else. Without Niklas Hjalmarsson, Trevor van Riemsdyk, Johnny Oduya, and maybe Brian Campbell, the Hawks will be a lot greener on the blue line next season. Newcomers Connor Murphy and Jan Rutta will be in the mix, and Gustav Forsling figures to get a full NHL season after a partial rookie campaign. “Looking forward to seeing how he plays,” Quenneville said.
The Blackhawks signed new backup goaltender Anton Forsberg to a two-year contract on Monday, and inked Tomas Jurco to a one-year extension. Monday was the deadline for teams to tender qualifying offers to restricted free agents, and the Hawks wasted little time signing Forsberg and Jurco. The Hawks also qualified RFAs Dennis Rasmussen, Erik Gustafsson and Ville Pokka. Forsberg was acquired Friday in the blockbuster Artemi Panarin-for-Brandon Saad trade.
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".
