  1. 10 Player playoff or Custom Playoff Bracket

    We play a ten person league and we want to have ALL teams in the playoffs. Its boring for the 2 player teams that can't play the last few weeks. PLUS we do a final loser award and we would love to have those players have a fighting change to do abit better.

  2. Playoff weeks should all be ≥2 weeks

    Currently one bad week could ruin an entire season so longer playoff weeks could help mitigate that.

  3. Actual consolation playoffs

    In larger keeper leagues with draft pick trading (for example: 14 team league, 8 qualify for championship playoffs), there should be an actual consolation playoff option to keep teams that did not qualify for championship playoffs engaged in the league and prevent tanking for draft position. In our league we would ideally have the 6 "non-playoff" teams (seeded 9 through 14 after regular season) compete in playoffs, and we would award the winner the 1st overall pick the following draft (and runner-up the 2nd pick, 3rd the 3rd pick, etc...). I reached out to Yahoo help and they informed me…

  4. There should be an option to make each playoff matchup last two or even three weeks in fantasy hockey. ESPN allows two week matchups.

    There should be an option to make the playoffs last two or three weeks in fantasy hockey. A seven game playoff series in the NHL lasts more than two weeks. A two or three week option makes the champion less of a **** shoot.

  5. make it possible to play the final week of the nhl reg season in playoffs

    make it possible to play the final week of the reg season, currently the latest u can make the finals is week 24 which ends march 31 but the nhl goes until sunday april 6. You're able to make week 25 the final week if your league does not have playoffs but not if your league does have playoffs which makes no sense.

  6. H2H 2 week playoff rounds

    Having 2 week playoff formats for 12 team leagues. Espn offers that option however we all prefer the yahoo platform! our regular is 16 or 18 weeks and the 3 playoffs rounds are each 2 weeks. YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS AN OPTION!!

  7. Two Week Finals (head to head)

    Please give Yahoo users the option of picking a 1 week or a two week finals. All you are giving us at the moment is 1 week and there is no choice. We do not want you to change the format for all leagues, just make it an option please. That can not be that hard to implement.

  8. Custom playoff options

    There needs to be an option for 2-week playoff matchups. Managers work hard to make the playoffs, and single week matchups late in the season when teams are resting many all-star players (to prepare for actual playoffs) are not representative of a fantasy team's strength.

    ESPN certainly has the functionality. They allow leagues to start playoffs earlier (ie. well before the time of the year when CHI starts resting some big name players for playoffs), such as week 18.

    TLDR: Single week playoff format at the end of the season in H2H leagues doesn't reward managers who have built the…

  9. Why don't they offer a playoff pool?

    They should create a playoff pool option, especially with a live draft option.

  11. 8 Team playoffs should have the option for a 4 team consolation bracket

    When my league was 10 teams, top 6 made it and bottom 4 went into a consolation bracket where the winner earned the first overall pick next year. We expanded to 12 teams this year and an 8 team playoff and now the 4 team consolation doesn't exist? This is literally no different from other 4 team consolations they already have so I see no reason why that can't happen. This is the best option to keep teams from tanking at the end of the season and just getting rid of all of their players they're not going to keep…

  12. Offer a Points Only or Rotisserie format with H2H playoffs

    Have been having this chat with my league quite a bit. There is one camp that really prefers Points Only scoring and another that lives by H2H formats. After much back and forth, both camps agree that a best of both worlds would be a Points Only / Roto regular season followed by H2H playoffs.

    This would give us that Roto league feeling (competing against the whole league, not just 1 other manager) throughout the year while maintaining the most fun part of the season - playoffs! The way a Roto league just ends is so boring.

    Not sure about…

  13. Some kind of POST SEASON Fans

    Add some kind of playoff fantasy league. Live draft and all. With a dwindling talent pool with every elimination, it would take a good manager to navigate the players available. In idea would be the top 4 regular season fantasy teams in your league are invited to a 4 player survival post season league. Separate from the regular season. So the reg. season winner is still the winner, but the top 4 get to start a new form of entertainment.

  15. Have a NHL Playoff Pick'em pool

    Have a playoff pick'em pool similar to the pro football pick'ems. Other pool platforms offer them, why not Yahoo?

  16. allow an option to set Final on week 24 (for one week only, not two). Thus cancelling the last NHL week.

    Add an option to set the Finals to be on week 24 for one week only, not two. Thus cancelling the last NHL week, which is very weak.

  17. Add 8-APR into Playoff now, BOS vs FLA rescheduled game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Add Sunday April 8th to playoff week 24. This will include the recently re-scheduled game between Florida and Boston.

    even when manually put in the date in URL, it shows the page, but you cannot edit any players (so you can't put BOS or FLA players or goalies that's on the bench at the moment into your line up).

    This is part of the 82 regular reason games (in real NHL), please urgently make 8-APR available for 8-APR, 2018 asap.

  18. Do star players get rested?

    Was wondering if my league should include the final week of the nhl reg season (april 2-7). It runs a full week this year but i'm weary in case star players on teams with nothing to play for get rested or don't play at all in the final game or two. Can anyone remember if that's usually the case in past years?

  19. Customize all playoff rounds

    Why is Round 1 editable but not Round 2?? Lol. So bizarre.

    This would basically act as a totally customizable tiebreaker system which is exactly what I'm sure a lot of leagues would want.
