A report from the New York Post says Barclay Goodrow is not happy with New York Rangers management over how his move to the San Jose Sharks was handled

NHL General Managers have to get ruthless at times in order to ensure the viability of their teams, and this is a perfect example. According to the New York Post, Barclay Goodrow, who was recently placed on waivers by the New York Rangers and picked up by the San Jose Sharks, is not happy with the way things went down.
"San Jose has claimed Barclay Goodrow off waivers.

Goodrow began his career with the Sharks."

Larry Brooks of the Post writes that the Rangers knew the Sharks were interested in acquiring Goodrow. However, San Jose was one of the teams on Goodrow's 15-team no trade list. Rangers General Manager Chris Drury, who was simply looking to dump Goodrow's salary, put the player on waivers knowing full well the Sharks would claim him.
"This was ruthless.

And this is what championship organizations do."

To clarify, Drury didn't do anything against the rules, but it seems the move has left a bad taste in Goodrow's mouth.
"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.

But it's not about Goodrow's feelings. It's about Drury and the hierarchy keeping their eyes on the prize."

Goodrow spent several years in San Jose before eventually going to the Tampa Bay Lightning and winning back-to-back Stanley Cups. Word is the 31-year-old wanted to go to a contender, or a team close to it, something San Jose is not, and won't be for a few years yet barring nothing short of a miracle. Unfortunately for him, things don't always work out the way you want them to.
