100%. Just had this issue raise it's ugly head in my league. Would make everyone happy.

Hi Clayton this wouldn't mean any additional slots, this would just allow players listed as DTD to be placed into one of the 'x' amount of DL slots that your league allows.
People stash players in DL all the time that's not really an issue. This idea actually makes things a lot more fair because while you may have a full healthy roster I can have a guy listed as DTD who I can't drop or put into the DL so I'm losing an opportunity to earn points all week.
We don't have 40 man rosters in fantasy so the flexibility makes it more real not less too, cuz the real teams are fielding other players we should be able to as well.
jg2 DTD players are treated the same way on a Hockey roster, it is only when they are listed as IR do they not count towards the 23 man roster. Yet in Yahoo Hockey leagues Commissioners have the option of adding an IR+ position which incorporates DTD. All this guy is saying is that Yahoo Baseball leagues should have the option for DL+. Not sure why Yahoo doesn't have this as an option especially when in Baseball injuries are more rampant and having a guy DTD hurts your team a **** of a lot more considering they play almost every day.
This suggestion is as simple as choosing Quality over Quantity.
Dont you know how important it is to see first thing every day that your draft time was changed back in September!?
Not only are the 'hidden' Commissioner notes pretty much pointless now, but Message Boards don't show up in the App either, while Smacktalk only works on the app and not on the site! There's no reliable medium to use. They've taken the comms away from the commissioners! Bad joke- worse that an opportunity was created for it! And truthfully, the lack of communication is also making things a little stale from how they used to be...
I don't understand the desire for this proposal... a GWG is a GWG whether it's in OT or not isn't it?
To say it's "Truer" than scoring with say less than a second in regulation isn't right. And how is it more "clutch" when it's down to 3 on 3?
While I'm all for having options there are better improvements to be made

Additionally this would really shine when importing custom pre-draft rankings to multiple leagues because you wouldnt have to set high ranked players who are keepers to "do not draft" in order to filter through them.
So frustrating having to sort through 60+ names at the top of the list in Pre-Draft Rankings because they are Keepers in my league. Would be nice if there was an option to hide or remove these protected keepers from the default list before editing my rankings.
I tried having "No trade deadline" and locking each team from trades at our own deadline with the idea of unlocking trading again after our playoffs were over and the NHL's began. But after unlocking the message reads "error 155 The Game is over you can't do this action." Another good idea blocked by yahoo! It would benefit my keeper league who allows offseason trades to even just allow trading during the NHL playoffs - we're still all following hockey for the most part during that time. Can't see why it couldn't be all season or at least extended for playoffs
Wouldn't mind seeing some new defensive stat options to track like Total Zone, RZR, UZR or Defensive runs saved or +/-
One of the main things that differentiates defenseman from forwards is the amount of TOI that they put in. To make this work as a category it couldn't be cumulative for the whole week- rather you would take the top 10 (or top x amount) TOI performances from one team vs the top 10 (or x) TOI appearances of their opponent and add them against each other to decide the winner of the cat for the week (for H2H).
This would keep it from getting devalued through something like streaming or a weak schedule and I think it would be a way to add more value to time-eating defenseman that many people have been looking to do without the double-counting of the stats for forwards since the forwards with little exception aren't going to give the highest TOI performances over Defensive players in most lineups.
A viable option. Next to the percent value I would still like to see the very valuable numbers of the actual won/total numbers my players got in sort of a grey kind of like they do with TOI so ie-
FO% 79 150/190
And some sort of minimum FO's to be taken that can be set by commissioners so a guy who flukes with 10/11 can't win the category without really competing in it.
Ya. I like it a lot. Would make drafting in keeper leagues a lot more interesting too. With the possibility of trading your future prospects you got lined up and not just draft picks would add a whole nuva level. I for one would look deeper into the young players coming up in the league.
Should follow NHL Rookie rules my vote but good option either way.

Good idea to keep things interesting! But if I can help out this is already a possibility since the commissioner can manually enter draft picks for all rounds. You just need the shout-out to the league about how it is and the commish can set the rounds next year based on the results. Another idea is to have the loser of the consolation give up a better pick for a worse one from the winner of the consolation. Incentive to win AND not to lose!
Also when set to "Start Active Players" that teams other actions should be locked so it can't be taken advantage of
Giving ONLY the commissioners this ability is a great idea. That way yahoo can be happy that teams for the most part still maintain their responsibility of not being lazy and actually managing their team, AND commissioners will be better equipped to handle a rogue manager who may not care anymore and hurts their league without needing to manually set that teams line-up every day, or someone taking a vacation or in some other type of situation outside of their control.
You could totally set this up already by doing an offline draft where the customization of your request could be managed.
You should maybe take your idea further and have managers pick a certain number of players from a specific franchise (not just goalies) that they have to keep on their team and would have first chance to take. So if you drew first pick and chose SJ you can pick 'x' amount from SJ you must have on your roster and so on. Enter the picks pre-draft and draft as normal with whoever is left.
That would make for an interesting league especially with keepers where you would have that edge on your franchise goalie that you wanted.
Otherwise what would stop someone from laying claim to more than one franchise of goalies in your proposed set up? That would be ridiculous.
Do it for the whole franchise or don't do it all.... or there is always the other option of drafting better next year!
