  2. Preemptive Shutouts

    I don't know who thought giving a shutout to goalies at the start of the game was a good idea, but they could not be more off the mark. Does the league give goalies 82 shutouts at the start of the season and take them away as they go? No, obviously not. It'misrepresents your live fantasy points and will only result in frustration and disappointment as most of your goalies "shutouts" get taken away as they concede. So dumb.

  3. Please add takeaways and giveaways as stats next year

    Honestly these two stats are incredibly important metrics to evaluate players in real life so I think it would translate very well to fantasy. It doesn’t make sense to reward players by adding PIMs as a category (unless it’s counted negatively) when these two stats are ignored. Please change for next year!!

  4. Please make a Max limit on positions

    A big problem in our league for many years has been the amount of goalies a team will "hoard."

    A bunch of our managers have brought up how one team can have as many 5 or 6 goalies rostered at one time, while another may have just 1 healthy goalie.

    Can you make a feature for next season where you can place a max limit on roster positions?

    We would love to have say a max of 3 goalies on your active roster, so if a starter on another team gets hurt you will have to decide whether to drop…

  6. Goalie points for reaching OT

    Goalies are not currently rewarded for getting their team to OT. OT and SO losses should be additional goalie points.

  7. Fighting points

    Fighting should be a separate category from PIM. Fighting brings a totally different element, a more valuable one in terms of gameplay, than any other penalty.

  8. Points for shootout goals

    Shootouts are not currently a part of Yahoo's scoring system. Adding points for shootout goals and gamewinning shootout goals would be a cool option.

  9. Tracking Overtime Points- G, A, P

    Please add Overtime Points Tracking- G, A, P
    GWG is a bit of a fluke stat given the timing someone scores. If you could track those who produce in overtime, it would would help capture the 'clutch' factor of players. It also rewards those top tiered players who are getting ice in OT.

  10. Remove Empty Net Goals from Plus-Minus

    Plus-Minus has long been a broken stat, and I can't believe Yahoo still hasn't provided us with a better option.

    A big part of the problem is that Empty Net Goals against count as a plus or minus when a player is on the ice.

    Idea: Provide a plus-minus (+/-) stat that excludes Empty Net Goals

    Thank you.

  11. Points for goalie lost in overtime or shootout

    There should be an option in the beginning of a fantasy league scoring settings to allow goalies who lost a game in overtime or shootout to have a point.

  12. Please add 'Defensive Points' as a scoring category

    A certain competing fantasy sports company has this stat that will add a set value of fantasy points to a goal or assist a defenseman registers. This helps my league add value to defense and avoid stacking on forwards.

    Please I want to switch my league to Yahoo. Our keeper league is too dedicated to having that category to be able to switch without it.

    PIMS should be negative in a cats league, or we should be given the choice of PIMS(positive) and PIMS(negative).

  14. weighted pointed categorie would be cool! Have key stats count for 2 points vs periphery stats

    Have the choice to determine that a stat category is worth 1 or 2 points. Could add significance to goals and assists for example, and stil track other stats for points. So in a league that uses 8 stats, if 2 are weighted to 2 points, then the point total would be 10 per week.

  15. Maximum Games Played per roster slot - Goalies - Points-Only Leagues

    Commisioners should be able to set the amount of Maximum Games Played per goalie roster slot in Points-Only Leagues.

    Since goalies never play all 82 games in a season, and in Points-Only leagues each goalie roster slot is set to 82 Maximum Games Played per slot by default with no option to adjust, managers inevitably have to own more than one goalie per goalie roster slot in order to reach the Maximum Games Played for that position. In larger Points-Only leagues this means that some managers will be at an unfair disadvantage because there are not enough quality goalie starts…

  20. Goalie Point System

    Can you please fix the goalie goals against point system. Right now goalies are being rewarded more points for letting in more goals....Example, Rangers lose 10-1 and Lundqvist is in net, he let in 10 goals therefore he received 10 pts for the night. The opposing goalie let in 1 goal and he gets 1 point. Doesnt make sense at all, please fix asap!
