Rangers officially cut ties with veteran Barclay Goodrow

Yikes... with still 3 years left at $3.6 million

This just in, the New York Rangers have placed veteran forward Barclay Goodrow on waivers.

From NHL insider Elliott Friedman:

The 31 year old Goodrow still has three years remaining on a contract that pays him over $3.6 million per season. Rangers GM Chris Drury is obviously hoping to give his team some salary cap relief by offloading the veteran Goodrow on another team via waivers. If, however, there are no takers in the next 24 hours the Rangers could elect to buy-out Goodrow's contract once the offseason officially begins. However, the team would then incur a $1.1 million salary cap penalty for three seasons beginning in 2027-28 if they go down that route.

While Goodrow is a fine depth player, he's simply not worth the contract that was awarded to him by Drury back in 2021. Goodrow managed just 12 points in 80 games for the Rangers this past season, but he did manage to notch six goals in 16 post-season games, helping the Rangers to the Eastern Conference Final.
