It’s June, so it’s time for SB Nation’s annual NHL Mock Draft. Between now and the real 2017 NHL Draft on June 23, our network of 30-plus hockey blogs will run through the first round, making selections on behalf of the teams they cover. It all began June 13 with the top two picks, and we will conclude on June 21 with the final three selections in the first round. We’ll follow the real draft order that the NHL will follow on the 23rd, unless ... yes, we allow trades in our mock draft.
Back at the trade deadline, rumors circled around Nashville Predators defenseman Dan Hamhuis. Ultimately, general manager David Poile decided that he wanted to keep Hamhuis around for what they hoped would be a deep playoff run. Today, just two weeks before Hamhuis hits the free agent market, Poile has decided to get something for him.
NEW YORK -- For most of Wednesday night, all I could think about were my fingers. Before the game, amidst a still-empty Yankee Stadium; all through a stroll around the ballpark and a dip down the steps into Monument Park; during the 20-minute long on-ice warmups; through the first period, the second and third -- for all that time, I was nearly positive I was going to lose a damn finger.
But even if your personal situation at work is perfect, that doesn’t mean it is for all of your coworkers! Joining a union is an easy way to help all of your talented colleagues fight for transparency and get a seat at the table. #VoxUnion
Unions are good even if you are comfortable in your job, title, salary, benefits, etc. Those things can change by no fault of your own — especially in a rapidly-changing field like digital media — and joining a union can help protect you if shit goes sideways. #VoxUnion
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".
