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!!
agreed! time to step up your game, Yahoo.

Yahoo hasn't added a Hockey category in 20 years. It would be nice to get some Next Gen stats. FO% would go well with FW category.
Giveaways and takeaways is a nice add. I would be shocked if they added any category

This is one of the most demanded and hoped-for changes my league wishes to see occur.
Can even make it a combined category, where the stat is (takeaways - giveaways).

Totally agree. I would also like "drawn penalties" as a kategory.

Now its even in the Yahoo boxscore. Give us these stat categories. I would rather have too many to choose from than not enough
Hey Andrew, my name is Wes and I agree with your post. Let's get into the meat and potatoes...hits isn't being recorded as accurately anymore. I've seen a player like P.Hornqvist hit someone 5 times in a shift and yahoo count for 1 and I've seen P.Bergeron breathe on someone without the puck and watch his stat category gain +1 hit. In the NHL, giveaways and takeaways represent skill. Look at basketball, turnovers is a very key category. Yahoo needs to pride itself on adaptability and providing the best platform for fantasy success. In dynasty leagues where people pay a lot of money, build teams, and potentially lose friendships, change/diversity of stat categories is imperative. Player categories could use a modern "lift" and I think the implementation of at least turnovers would really change the face of many leagues who are in "ruts." Thank you.
