With just over a month to go before the NHL trade deadline and less than three months remaining in the regular season, the Jim Benning watch is getting more intense. The Canucks general manager since 2014 is without a contract beyond this season. So what’s the hold up? Good question, although it certainly seems like president Trevor Linden and Canucks ownership are in a wait-and-see mode. If that’s the case, they can’t like what they’ve seen on the ice this season.
Your prayers have been answered, Canucks fans. While most of his teammates are still enjoyingÂ sunny vacationsÂ during the league-mandated bye week, Bo Horvat was back on the ice at Rogers Arena on Thursday. The Canucks’ No. 1 centre has been out of the lineup since December 5, when he fractured his foot in a game against the Carolina Hurricanes. He’s been medically cleared to travel and practice with the Canucks before their game in Edmonton on Saturday.
It’s looking pretty bleak for the Montreal Canadiens these days. Losers of three straight games, including Wednesday night’s 4-1 loss in Boston, the Habs continue to slip in the Eastern Conference playoff race. They’re now nine points back of the Pittsburgh Penguins for the final wild card spot, with five other teams still to leapfrog. There’s still 37 games left in their season, but they will have to go on a pretty improbable streak.
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".
