The database for hockey is really frustrating for commissioners. We have to manually keep track of players that were in the database the prior season but have since been removed. High end prospects are added one year and removed the next year for no apparent reason. I've been a commissioner for dynasty leagues on yahoo for 10+ years and I've had to manually keep track of things. Yahoo could make their fantasy product so much more attractive with very little effort. But they don't seem to want to listen to the people who play fantasy and make them money. There is no reason why a player who was drafted 3rd overall in the rookie draft isn't in the database, but the guy that was drafted 209th is in the database? Where is the logic ? Neither player is at training camp! Neither player has a contract! So why not the 3rd the player who went 3rd overall and is expected to be a star ?
This is just 1 of many questionable moves by yahoo which makes them a Mickey Mouse option for fantasy hockey

Ilya Sorokin and Kirill Kaprizov were both in the Yahoo database last year. In the offseason, they were removed for whatever reason. I run several dynasty leagues and we've been forced to keep track of ownership of these players outside of Yahoo. You boast about a new feature being 1200+ prospects in your player pool yet, you don't have at least 2 players in it that were in it last year. Please get these players and others added.
