That’s the reality of the now infamous P.K. Subban-for-Shea Weber trade, the hallmark of GM Marc Bergevin’s tenure in Montreal. The trade has been discussed ad nauseam by this point, but it’s worth mentioning that the biggest driver behind Montreal’s side of the deal was that Weber would help the Canadiens win now. Montreal knew full well that Weber had a poisonous contract – a mega contract that isn’t set to expire until the 2025-26 season.
With more than a month of the hockey calendar down, we’re starting to get an understanding of how each team and head coach thinks about their bluelines. I’m always fascinated by how coaches manoeuvre through talent availability and the workload of their star defenders. There was no better example of this than the dichotomy of deployment in last year’s final four.
The first year of the Travis Green era in Vancouver has started swimmingly. In a pure rebuild year, Green’s Canucks are out to an 8-7-2 start – good enough to make a surprise appearance in the early stages of the Western Conference playoff race. One of the early hallmarks of the Green era has been a dedication to getting his younger players substantial ice time. On the defensive side, it’s meant that guys like Ben Hutton are holding the second-most ice time across all Canucks skaters.
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".
