  1. Goalie scoring

    Why are goalies not able to score as forwards score? Goalies can have PPP, SHP, G, A, GWG, PIMs, SOG!? These points can add value to a goalie beyond what they currently have!

    And why isn't there a mechanism that allows the commissioner to correct such errors if needed?

  2. Next season, penalty minutes should be scored as a negative rather than a positive.

    What is the purpose of having a player in the penalty box creating positive stats, when he is making his team play short handed?

  3. different scoring for defensemen and forwards in the same pool

    We really need to have our defensemen be able to get different stats than the forwards in our pool. For the last four years we have had to have a separate pool for the defensemen stats as you cannot separate the scoring for the positions. We have a keeper pool that is based off of real NHL salaries and the defensemen need to have blocked shots and hits as well as goals and assists to be equal to the top forwards. However you cannot have only the defensemen get the blocked shots and hits. It would be awesome if this…

  4. Please add faceoff win percentage.

    Since you already have faceoff wins and faceoff losses, please just add the category faceoff win percentage. This is the stat by which centers are generally evaluated in their performance in the faceoff circle.

  5. Please add Overtime Goals as a stat

    Please add Overtime Goals as a statistic option. It is a stat that is tracked by the NHL - results for last season can be viewed here:

    http://www.nhl.com/stats/player?reportType=season&report=skatersummary&season=20152016&gameType=2&sort=otGoals&aggregate=0&pos=S

    OT Goals are the truest form of a game winning goal, and is the ultimate exemplification of a "clutch" player.

  6. Add Average Time on Ice (ATOI)/ (TOI/G) as a scoring stat!

    You already track it... each players ATOI can be viewed in the player pool. It's a great stat category to have to add value to good players, especially good D-men. Considering moving my league to ESPN because I know they have it.

  7. Please add a bonus points option for a hat trick

    I would like to add some additional incentive to owners that have a player who scores a hat trick. Currently, the scoring is just that 3 goals are 3 goals. Hat tricks are a unique thing that happens in hockey and it is special when it does happen. It would be nice to bring that into this game and be able to choose how many points it would be as a bonus for a player scoring a hat trick.

  8. Please add average stats (fantasy points per game) for 14-15 & 15-16 season totals

    This is key information for determining draft selections, and ensures good players who were injured aren't forgotten

  9. Defensive Stat Additions

    It would be great to see the following incorporated in the league for scoring:


    • Takeaways

    • Giveaways

    • Faceoff Win Percentage

  10. 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…

  11. Please Add STP (Special Teams Points) as a Category. Short Handed+Powerplay Points

    My league argues whether or not Short Handed Points are worth an entire category, yet they should be worth more than 5v5 points. By combining PPP and SHP into one category we could find some middle ground on this issue, and the stat would be easy to create on Yahoo's end.

    Thanks very much for your feedback! The team is looking into adding more stat categories for this season. Will keep you updated here!

  13. Bring back sortable stats

    When looking at your roster, you used to be able to look at current rankings over 7, 14, 30 days or the entire season. Over the last few days, it appears that on the individual team page, you can only look at current rankings for the whole season. This obviously adds a layer of difficulty that was not there before in evaluating current player performance. Please allow us the ability to view those rankings on our team page as opposed to only in the Free Agent section.

  14. 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!!

  16. Expand scoring categories

    The big one I am getting at is a composite goalie wins category (W + OTL) have 2 points for a win, and 1 point for a overtime loss or shootout loss. Its so frustrating watching your goalie go the distance only to lose in a 6 round shootout.

    Other stats which would be nice: goalie scoring stats contributing to the regular scoring categories, Defensive scoring bonus, even strength stats (G/A/P/Shutouts/etc.), primary assists (or a composite cat).

  18. Have Goalies max different than other players

    No NHL goalie plays 82 games but every good fully healthy forward or d-man will play 82 games. The best and healthiest goalies play only 65 or 70 games ...please make that an option.
    I've played in 14 team leagues with 2 goalie spots of 82 ...teams end up having 4 to 5 goalies just to fill up the 162 games (even having AHL goalies on the bench).
    I would like to set-up 65 or 70 GP/goalie so two top healthy goalies is all you really need. 130 or 140 GP instead of 164 ...stop the scrambling for 3 and…

  19. Shootout Scoring

    I'd really like to see shootout scoring introduced into the Yahoo Fantasy. Seeing as shootouts play a huge role in the winning of a game, it would be great as a fantasy "GM" to have your players who score a shootout goal get something like half a point and shootout winners be one point.

  20. Corsi (shot attempt differential) for points

    If the point of fantasy points is to measure skill, then shot attempt differential can no longer be ignored. As a more accurate version of +/-, it correlates much more with winning than, say, blocked shots or hits, both of which are currently counted in fantasy leagues.

    These stats are very easily attained now that the NHL is keeping official track of them on their website, so I don't see why assigning something like 0.1 pt per corsi wouldn't work. An amazing night of +10 corsi would thus be 1pt — nothing too intrusive, but something which rewards smart understanding of…
