Extending the Season to May 11
NHL scheduling games to May 11, Currently our limit is May 8th. Can you please give us the option to extend the season?
We are working on getting this updated.
More and more games are being rescheduled to after May 8... come on, do your job!

Do the right thing Yahoo, and make it an option to be able to extend the season to the postponed games!

Ludacris decision but it's not too late for Yahoo to do the right thing..... Fix this please.
I can only agree with Brian. this makes sense in head-to-head leagues. but leave the option to extend in points only leagues.
I have many players from the canucks, oilers, jets, stars.. all these teams have 2 or more games after May8. I wasn't able to put them on IR+ as well, so I needed to hold them.. absolute garbage

Why should fantasy owners who suffered from a deluge of postponed games and yet still managed to make playoffs be penalized again by not having those postponed games count when they are eventually played again at the end of the year? I basically have to cut JT Miller now.
Absolutely incredible the decision Yahoo made to not count games after May8 or 11 or whatever. Head-to-head I can see, but NOT for fantasy leagues where I have been slaughtered by PPD games. Now in order to catch up and have a fair shot I need the same number of games played as everyone else. Yahoo wants to punish me because I have 4 members of Oilers & Canucks that will cost be significant games and will likely be played after May8 or 11. Should have been some sort of vote or comment-box before hand. The explanation provided by yahoo makes zero sense. ZERO. You must make change or we will shift to another site next year.

I think this is a poor decision, because it's the same for everyone and whoever had postponed games during the season lost out on those games and now they don't get them back? Anyway, this is a message from Yahoo and it annoyed me.
Based on what we know about the NHL schedule today, we have made the decision to not extend the 2020-2021 Yahoo Fantasy Hockey season beyond May 8th. We will be excluding all postponed games during this time period. We have made this decision because adding these games to the end of the season will negatively impact competition for a number of teams during critical weeks late in the season.

Great idea. Add the extra days to the Finals in Head to Head Leagues.
