  1. Add Alex DeBrincat

    He's one of the top prospects in all of hockey and could be playing alongside Patrick Kane. He was in Yahoo Hockey last year. How has he not been added yet?

    Lots are leagues are drafting and are missing out. Come one Yahoo help us out.

  2. Strength of Schedule (SOS)

    For Head-to-Head leagues, under the "Standings", add the Strength of Schedule (SOS) column to show the difficulty or ease of a team's/person's opponent as compared to other teams/persons. This is especially important if teams in a league do not play each other the same number of times.

    This column may also be used in the future as an alternative for determining which teams would be eligible for playoffs and tiebreakers.

    The calculation would be SOS = 2(OR)+(OOR) / 3, where OR is the opponents' record, while OOR is the opponents' opponents record.

  3. Show when teams are out of playoff contention

    Currently the league standings show an asterisk when a team has locked down a playoff spot, but can we also get a mark to show when a team is out of contention? This is how NHL standings usually work, and would make the fantasy game that much closer to the real thing. Then it's easy to see which teams are still fighting in the last few weeks, without having to do math.

  5. PreDraft Rankings - List of newly added players

    A list of players added after the league goes live would be very helpful.
    Yahoo should create a list of newly added players. I like to set pre-draft rankings, add players to Watch List. But Yahoo adds players after i set my predraft rankings/when the fantasy league is first opened. One has to look through 800+ players to pick out the newly added players.

  6. Clayton Keller requires LW eligibility, and no center eligibility.

    As of right now he is Center only and yet during his 3 game audition last year he only played LW at the NHL level.

  7. Dynasty/Prospecting Solution!

    In the Commissioner tab and in "Edit League Settings" there is an option to ADD INJURED PLAYERS DIRECTLY TO AN INJURY SLOT Y/N?
    If you were to allow this SOLELY for players who are NA eligible (and increasing the number of NA allowable wouldn't hurt) Leagues would very easily be able to customize their own Dynasty type formats or player prospecting because they wouldn't have to drop players from their roster in order to pick up or trade between NA eligible players! And because they don't have to drop it wouldn't mess up competition for a League's current season! I…

  8. Can't return to league because it's shown as "full"

    I received an email to re-join a league from last year. I click on the link "Join Now". I click "Join League" on the following page. And then it says:

    There is not room in this league if all teams from last year return. If you were invited to take over an existing team, please click the link in the email you received to join the league. To create a brand new team, get the commissioner to increase the maximum number of teams, or remove teams that will not be returning.

    No room? It says there's currently 1 out of…

  10. Commissioner only (without a team) option is long overdue

    Right now, if you want to be a commissioner but not own a team, you have to create a dummy team or be a co-manager on an existing team. There needs to be an option to be a commissioner without owning a team - this is long overdue.

  13. Be able to switch the set limit of roster spots of C, LW, RW to 1 and 0. We might want to eventually transition into just 6 forward slots.

    Want to reduce rw, c, lw to 1 and add 3 forward spots. And maybe eventually 6 forward spots and reduce the c, lw and rw to 0.

  14. Bring back sortable stats

    When looking at your roster, you used to be able to look at current rankings over 7, 14, 30 days or the entire season. Over the last few days, it appears that on the individual team page, you can only look at current rankings for the whole season. This obviously adds a layer of difficulty that was not there before in evaluating current player performance. Please allow us the ability to view those rankings on our team page as opposed to only in the Free Agent section.

  15. list players who are suspended as "not available"

    players who get suspended should be listed as "NA" so they may be put into an NA slot.dynasty and keeper leagues should not be penalized and have to keep a suspended player on their roster.This really hurt my team recently in the playoffs.

  16. Allow injured player replacement in weekly roster locked leagues

    Our H2H league uses weekly roster locks (instead of daily) to make it more casual. If a player gets injured early in the week (ie. Jonathan Quick placed on IR this week) and is eligible for being placed in the IR or IR+ slot, can Yahoo make an exception to the weekly roster lock to allow a replacement from your bench when a player is placed into the IR/IR+ slot.

  17. Please add Overtime Goals as a stat

    Please add Overtime Goals as a statistic option. It is a stat that is tracked by the NHL - results for last season can be viewed here:

    http://www.nhl.com/stats/player?reportType=season&report=skatersummary&season=20152016&gameType=2&sort=otGoals&aggregate=0&pos=S

    OT Goals are the truest form of a game winning goal, and is the ultimate exemplification of a "clutch" player.

  19. What are the waiver rules

    If someone can please answer the rule to the bottom situation please.
    Jesse Puljujarvi gets dropped after playing his ten games then remains in the minors. Can anyone pick him up or does he have to be called up first before being able to grab him?

  20. Will you please, please, please make a league settable option - "automatically put players in starting positions for daily line up".

    I don't want to hear about "you need to let your mangers play, otherwise why even bother doing it". THAT'S WHY I SAY MAKE IT A SETTING THAT CAN BE CHOSEN, SO PEOPLE THAT WANT THIS FOR THEIR LEAGUE CAN HAVE THE COMMISH SELECT IT. It totally sucks, especially around playoff time, when you are trying to win a playoff position and somebody else is gifting your competition for that playoff spot points because they "forgot to set their line up" or they are out of the playoff race and just don’t care anymore. LET THE APPLICATION DO IT AUTOMATICALLY…
