It’s no secret the Montreal Canadiens are a bit of a hurting unit on the blue line after the departures of Nathan Beaulieu and Andrei Markov last summer, on top of the P.K. Subban trade from the season before. Montreal’s defence has become a slower unit in an NHL that is getting faster by the season. They’ve been so needy for a swift-skating defenceman that 19-year-old Victor Mete was a surprise addition to the team out of junior this season.
With Carey Price still out with an undisclosed upper-body injury and no timetable for his return, and Al Montoya out indefinitely with a concussion, the Montreal Canadiens needed someone to be the backup for Charlie Lindgren, the undrafted 23-year-old goalie who has been a revelation filling in as the team’s de facto No. 1. But when the team claimed Antti Niemi of waivers, the reactions weren’t exactly positive. The 2010 Stanley Cup Final is a distant memory.
The three-game Karjala Cup tournament from Finland is over, which means we’re one step closer to the Olympics and Team Canada finalizing its non-NHL roster for the Games in South Korea. Between the summer’s Sochi Hockey Open, Nikolai Puchkov Tournament and the Karjala Cup, Team Canada general manager Sean Burke has had three tournaments at which to view the potential players who will represent Canada at the Olympics.
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".
