omfg. toi/g. go away...
toi/g in season (avg) ...jesus...
hey yahoo ...come on now fix this....
I think they need to fix this now! So annoying...
This is crazy
Season (avg) is a per game stat and should not factor in TOI/G. This makes no sense to me....just because a guy has a better 'per minute' average does not mean that his coach is gonna play him for the same number of minutes as someone else who has the same 'per minute' average. Yahoo please change this! Thank you.
NO. Shoot outs do not belong in hockey. PERIOD.
Honestly, I think this should be an option either way for the commish whether the PIM stat is good or bad. As far as I know it isn't an option. Regardless, I think it opens deep leagues to even more player options. Also, like goalies, it would have an impact at the end of the week where if you were already up (or down, I guess...) in the PIM stat, a team could just bench all their players who are likely to fight. Still, I think it should be a choice.
you guys have a slew of stats in the new players' profiles pages, but you should add the TOI/G and PP TOI/G. Would help a lot.
Horrible idea, shoot out stats should never count. The NHL doesn't count the stats, cause the shootout is so dumb at best of 3 shooters- aren't there 5 skaters during a game?
I'm for allowing it as an option to choose, but I would not want these goals counted in any other stat category, not GOALS. It should be entirely seperate if it were to be added. I do like it as an option though.
I agree. If a team gets a point for an OT or shootout loss, that should be a stat for fantasy goalies like it is on ESPN. In our points only league I'd like to have the goalies get a point for that game the same as the team he plays for.
I definitely see your point, but some guys in the NHL wouldn't even have jobs if it wasn't for their PIM accumulation, so it is seen, even at times in the NHL, as a rewarded stat
SO points should not count. The SO is silly to begin with, but the NHL doesn't count these stats on player goal stats. ANd if a goalie lets in 3 during a SO that should be added to the GAA? Crazy idea.
Leave it as it is
I still like the idea of takeaways being included. But there is something to say about NHL advanced stats being highly subjective. **** even the 2nd assist has been under scrutiny.
The option should be there for league managers to decide if they want to include shootout goals or not. The NHL keeps the shootout stats and it should be made available if a league wants to include it. At this point in time it is probably too late as 'smart teams' draft players based on how the league is setup.
Next year would be great to have that option along with goalie goals and assists... mike smith already had a sick snipe this year and brodeur had a goal last year.... as well there are many goalie assists throughout the season.

The shootout is what is ruining the game today. People think that winning or losing the shootout is winning or losing the game when in all actuality isnt true. The shootout has nothing to do with the game...five on five, or 4 on 4 overtime play. The shootout was put into existence for the fans to help get the fan base interested in hockey again after the lockout of 2004-05. Shootouts are also screwing up standings based on the fact that if one team has more shootout wins or losses is more important than a team with more regulation or actual overtime wins. There have been teams with more regulation wins not make the top eight because a team with more points through more shootout losses gets in with fewer regulation or actual overtime wins. NHL should do away with these stupid shootouts and just let the teams play an extra five minutes of overtime or something like that. If no one scores, then take the point and move on!
They should have their own categories in category leagues if you want, goalies have very few categories available to them, these two seem pretty obvious, goalie goals and goalie assists next year please

Goals & Assists should count and not just for Points Only league, any league which has Goals, Assists, Points or Even PIMs should include Goalies numbers for those stats/categories.
I completely agree with this! Please vote for having hat trick points added as well because hat tricks are unique and should have some incentive when a player scores 3 goals in a game as it is an important moment for the player. Why shouldn't it be an important moment for fantasy owners as well?
