News broke earlier yesterday that former Rangers Barclay Goodrow who was placed on waivers the day before, was picked up by his former team, the San Jose Sharks who happened to be on his no trade list.

Learning his fate, it's been reported that he is extremely unhappy with the Rangers organization for going this route.
New York Post's Rangers reporter Larry Brooks explained that the sharks are quite likely on his no trade list.
"We've been told by several folks that Goodrow — who scored six goals in 16 postseason matches after recording four in 80 games during the regular season — is not happy about how this went down. I guess I don't blame him," Brooks said.

"After speaking to multiple sources on Wednesday, there is widespread belief that Barclay Goodrow had included the Sharks on his 15-team, no-trade list that GM Chris Drury got around by placing No. 21 on waivers, where San Jose exercised the first claim to take the two-time Cup-winner," Brooks writes. "We're told that Goodrow's 15-trade list included teams in less-than-desirable locations and those who are not contenders. San Jose would fit into that last category. But the 31-year-old's feelings did not enter into this."

The Rangers were attempting to clear some cap space as the team is in a cap crunch with only $9 million to work with during the summer. By removing Goodrow from the books, they have now cleared $3.6 million AAV for the next three seasons. This move will allow the Rangers to make other moves that are necessary to help make changes to their lineup.
On the other hand, the sharks need veteran help as the team continues its rebuilding phase and will be drafting Macklin Celebrini at 1st overall Along with having Will Smith in their ranks. Adding veteran presence will help the youngsters grow and develop and the team can absorb the contracts.
