Scoring - General feedback and requests
General feedback regarding scoring options and requests for new scoring options and categories.
-Goalie scoring (G, A, PIM)
-Faceoff win %
-Bonus points for hat trick
-Takeaways, Takeaway/Giveaway ratio
-PIM as a negative
-Average time on ice
-Special teams points (SH+PP points)
I would like to add some additional incentive to owners that have a player who scores a hat trick. Currently, the scoring is just that 3 goals are 3 goals. Hat tricks are a unique thing that happens in hockey and it is special when it does happen. It would be nice to bring that into this game and be able to choose how many points it would be as a bonus for a player scoring a hat trick.
I haven't noticed shootout GWGs being awarded. If it isn't, it should be.
shootout goals are included as regular goals for the skater, and doesn't count against goaltender stats. sounds pretty fair to me.

This would be a fantastic addition.
no, and you're a moron. why not count the all-star game stats? that is a BIG part of the game and needs to be included, right? and the exhibition games, too. Those absolutely MUST be included.
Agree with AT. With all the problems with the new interface you're complaining about shootout stats? Know how to pick your battles.
A few more of the categories - maybe shootout statistics or some of the advanced stat categories would be nice to diversify. Right now many of the categories are redundant.

It should be offered to let leagues decide. Every time I see a shoot out the NHL spouts off the percentages - so someone is keeping stats. I think it would add a good dynamic to Fantasy Hockey.

Can we please get Hattricks added as a scoring category?
The only problem with real time stats is they are wildly inaccurate. I agree we should add them as an option, but maybe a note should be appended about their inaccuracy.
I agree with your special teams points. However takeaways, like hits and blocked shots are notorious for home cooking manipulation.
If the NHL doesn't count it as official stats then Yahoo! shouldn't either
Agreed. If you have a stat provider, let them know there are players who would like to see this in their league; the NHL keeps tabs of it so it shouldn't be too difficult. If you provide your stats, then please add this.

Since you already have faceoff wins and faceoff losses, please just add the category faceoff win percentage. This is the stat by which centers are generally evaluated in their performance in the faceoff circle.
