The Detroit Red Wings have their first top-10 pick since 1991, after landing the No. 9 pick in last month’s draft lottery. And while this year’s draft isn’t as heavy with talent as years past, it doesn’t mean there aren’t any quality players who can grow into top-end talent. The Red Wings certainly lack depth on the blue line, but should they take the best available player regardless of position need? In this week’s Grind Line, we take a look at whom the Red Wings should pick at No. 9.
Detroit Red Wings 2014 first-round pick Dylan Larkin was primed for a breakout season after scoring 45 points (23 goals, 22 assists) in 80 games during his rookie season last year. However, Larkin suffered the sophomore slump, scoring just 32 points (17 goals, 15 assists) in 80 games this past season. The Red Wings, as a whole, weren’t as good as last season, missing the playoffs for the first time in 26 seasons.
Life has been a roller coaster for Teemu Pulkkinen during the past few weeks. After being waived by the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 11, the Minnesota Wild claimed the 24-year-old winger. Pulkkinen scored in his third game with the Wild, but he was unable to record another point, and he found himself on waivers 17 days later after playing in eight games.
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".
