What's next for the Rangers after placing Barclay Goodrow on waivers?
Quick Glance: Rangers' Response After Placing Barclay Goodrow on Waivers
  • In order to meet all requirements this offseason, the New York Rangers are aware that additional salary cap space will be needed and have taken their first step to create additional flexibility.

  • Following Barclay Goodrow being placed on waivers on Tuesday afternoon, the Rangers are now in a 24-hour waiting period to see if another team claims the experienced forward.

  • If Goodrow remains unclaimed, the Rangers will have two options available. One option would involve sending him to the minor leagues, resulting in a savings of $1.15 million while maintaining a remaining salary deduction of $2,491,667 on their records.

  • Having not executed a buyout during his three-year tenure as team president and general manager, Chris Drury appears to have concluded that he needs more financial flexibility to propel the team, which has reached the Eastern Conference Final twice in the last three years, over the championship hurdle.

  • In 2021, a wealthy suburban school district in Texas garnered national attention when parents and local conservative activists falsely accused the district of indoctrinating students with Critical Race Theory.

  • Mike Hixenbaugh's book 'They Came for the Schools' illustrates how this school district became a model for Republicans nationwide and revealed their ambitions that go well beyond controlling which version of American history enters high school textbooks.

  • The movement to revise American history and the battle over teachings in schools have far-reaching implications for teachers, students, and communities nationwide.
