Combine nhl bye weeks into a 2 week long Matchup
Combine the 2 weeks of nhl bye weeks into 1 scoring period for head to head

We would like to see a clear reminder on the app and in the site that highlights 2-week match ups in real time as they occur.

Really disappointed this wasn't done this year.

I'm a big fan of this idea as well. If we have to have double weeks, which we do, then this is the best place to do it.
Can the roster be edited after week 1 of the combined scoring period?

Will yahoo consider making it possible for head to head leagues to choose to have their “weekly” matchup for the two week span where all NHL teams complete their bye week to be one matchup instead of two (this would be similar to the two week matchup at the start of the year when the league usually plays its first game on a Wednesday).
This would help ensure the integrity of the weekly Matchups that otherwise are subject to very significant differences in man games played from week to week during this time.
If some commissioners wanted to keep the current format for head to head
Matchups they would have the option to do so. But this could be a helpful solution for commissioners looking to manage this issue in their head to head leagues.

Yahoo really missed the boat on this one. I wrote to support about it and got a response about the combined weeks during the NHL all-star game. They already do it for that, it should be done for bye weeks as well.
Totally agree. There should be an option added where Commish can combine the weeks if they want.
YAHOO - you should have realized these weeks would have broken schedules and either combined them across the board or added the option for Commish to combine. I would have rather these 2-weeks were combined then the all-star weekend weeks. In that case everyone's schedule is impacted in the exact same way so it would not have been an issue to have 2-short weeks...
Hopefully this is corrected for next season. Hopefully this doesn't mess up standings too badly.
Look at the other post. It talks about this same problem. Please fix it. Most people don't carry 4-5 goalies. I think in my leagues it will be like half or more will not meet requirements.

agreed! i just messaged yahoo about it and they said there is nothing they can do. only in the beginning of the season. now 1/3 of my league wont make minimum goalie games. i was going to lower the min games but it gets pro-rated and if i change it back the 2 weeks after it will revert back. so... there is nothing yahoo can do about this. please combine the weeks just like xmas.
