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.

Quick Glance: Judge Reveals Juror's 'Cousin' Claimed Trump's Conviction on Facebook - Verification Uncertain
  • The judge in former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial informed lawyers on Friday that a person claiming to be a juror’s cousin wrote on social media that the former president would be found guilty before his historic conviction - although there is no proof that the commentator was actually related to the juror or had inside knowledge.

  • Judge Juan Merchan said the comment was left on a Facebook post by the New York court system on May 29 - one day before Trump’s conviction - and stated, 'My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted.'

  • It was not mentioned whether Merchan believed the comment to be legitimate, if court staff had investigated the matter, or if further action would be taken.

  • Conservative figures have taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to argue that if the Facebook comment is indeed from a juror’s cousin, Trump’s conviction should be overturned.

Trump challenges Biden to cognitive test while confusing doctor's name
Quick Glance: Trump challenges Biden to cognitive test, confuses doctor's name
  • Donald Trump expressed the suggestion on Saturday night that President Joe Biden 'should undergo a cognitive test,' only to then confuse who conducted the test.

  • During a portion of his presidency, the former president and presumptive Republican candidate mistakenly referred to Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, who served as the White House physician, as 'Ronny Johnson.' This occurred as Trump questioned Biden's mental fitness, a topic he frequently addresses during campaigns and on social media.

  • Trump has placed Biden's readiness for a second term at the forefront of his campaign, especially since turning 78 years old on Friday.

  • At his own request, Trump underwent the cognitive test in 2018, as reported by Jackson at the time. This assessment aims to identify early indications of memory loss and other minor cognitive impairments.
