There has to be an option for offseason trading for keeper leagues. Trading in the summer can be crucial. It's difficult to keep track of manual trades if it's done by the commissioner.46th ranked
As a commissioner, I would like to have the ability to limit the number of forwards a team can have on their active roster.
My current league setup has 12 starting forward positions and 6 starting defensemen positions. I have the bench set to 0. However, the system allows teams to drop defensemen and add additional forwards to their bench, even though bench is set to 0. If I could set the maximum number of forwards allowed on their roster to 12, this would resolve the issue. This maximum of 12 would not include players in IR or IR+ spots.110th ranked

Byfuglien has been on IR since yesterday morning....what is taking so long for yahoo to acknowledge that move (transaction)?
IR....why don't you put Byfuglien on IR...usually it is the teams that linger on making a move...this time it is yahoo....why can't you stay up with the game?225th ranked
Lets take the next step with Keeper League options. It is time to give us a minor league (farm team) option!
I have been involved in fantasy hockey as a commissioner and GM since 2007 Yahoo is my personal choice as the best platform with respect to aesthetics and user friendlyness however in my opinion along with many other users i know in forums and leagues it is significantly lacking in the Keeper League options, specifically the prospect management options. The lack thereof is causing 3 of my four leagues to consider 'Fantrax' moving forward because it allows you to have a minor league team and bring them up to your roster and send them down as you choose without an 'NA' designation.
All 4 of my Keeper Leagues include skaters and goalies outside of the NHL (ie. KHL, AHL, CHL etc.) The problems we have is; the NA designation and the big lack of ability to manage youre minor league players. The maximum 5 NA spots on your roster is not cutting it and is in my mind the only thing holding Yahoo back from being the true number one for keeper leagues.
The solution to this is simple:
Give Commissioners the ability and option to implement more than 5 spots for minor league players (5-10-15-20 would be great) and give them a green flag or something of the sort rather than an 'NA' until they are not considered a rookie anymore. See NHL Definition of a rookie below. ("To be considered a rookie, a player must not have played in more than 25 NHL games in any preceding seasons, nor in six or more NHL games in each of any two preceding seasons. Any player at least 26 years of age (by September 15th of that season) is not considered a rookie.") - NHL.com.
If possible include all drafted players in the NHL to the free agent list. This may be a tall order but if Yahoo answers the bell on the above suggestion. Hats off to you because we will have something special.
Fantrax, your number one competitor among avid poolers in baseball and hockey, allows both of these options and also have more stat options but that is not as important as the minor league issue. I really hope Yahoo! can make this dream a reality for the avid fantasy pooler.
Thank you for your time in reading, If you want more detail or feedback please email or call me I would be happy to help this become a reality.

I like the button start active players. Could it be improved by adding different options or "algorithms"?
For example - Starting lineup to
(1) maximize certain categories
(2) optimize lineup based on categories - like rank the 5 categorizes in order or priority
(3) start line up based on last 7, 14, 30 days, or projected daily stats
(4) start line up based on "pct started" value273rd ranked
This is a fair play issue. If the team or yahoo can't, doesn't or won't put a player on IR, why don't you add an IR+ spot so that guys who are not placed on the IR for whatever reason can be replaced without dropping a good player.346th ranked
Curious why Yahoo chose to perform site maintenance in the hours leading up to the 1st game on Feb 18/19? Seems like something that should be done in the middle of the night. And my commish says that he cannot go back and adjust lineups after games have been played, which seems ridiculous.486th ranked
Please provide more keeper options;
1 - Commissioner sets the number of keepers, including how many of each position are allowed
2 - Commissioner can assign contract lengths to keepers197th ranked
I am finding it very frustrating that this season I have had this issue. Many of my player notes are updating a day late. For example Brad Marchand played on Oct 30th and had 2 goals. Now in the app and on the website it says the note was on October 31st at 10:21AM BUT i know for a fact that note was not there at that time. It only appeared to me on 11/1 in the morning when I checked my team. This has been happening only from the start of this season as I've been using yahoo fantasy hockey since 2013. Is this a yahoo issue or what?

Adding a column for games played would allow for us to distinguish between poor performance and injury related deficits in statistics.346th ranked
When viewing a team's lines on the desktop site, the farthest back that you can set a date on the drop down menu is 2 days prior to the current date (you can do this over and over to get to the first day of play). What I would suggest is that the drop down menu functions similarly to the drop down menu on the mobile app, and the user be able to scroll up and down to select any date from the menu, so as to more easily view teams' lineups.346th ranked

He's not in the NHL, he plays from Drummondville of the QMJHL.
I play in a keeper league where we have a house rule that keepers are only players who have played less than 5 seasons in the NHL. Hence the value of acquiring prospects like Comtois and parking him on the NA roster position.346th ranked
Why can Yahoo not remove keepers from the player pool when we are doing our pre ranking? That's a lot of players we are ranking for no reason at all.
And give us a field where we can type in a name instead of making us search through hundreds of names of players. Heaven forbid if we want to pick up a player who is ranked 850th and has a last name that starts with 'Z'. It's going to take you five minutes to find him.273rd ranked
