I might be in the minority here, but I think each player should have one clear-cut position given at the start of the season (C, LW, RW, D), and the position qualifications should not be changed throughout the season regardless of where they play. It would remove any confusion, since so many forwards play multiple positions. It defeats the purpose of even having different positions if 50% of the players qualify at center and winger, as some people on here seem to want. For forwards, it's negligible which position they qualify for unless faceoff wins are a custom category, which is ridiculous in and of itself anyway.
Great Idea, unfortunately it doesn't apply b/c thats not the way it is. So other managers in my league are benefiting from their players gaining eligibility while Malkin remains only a c. This is taken directly from the notes posted beside a players name on Yahoo fantasy sports. "RW Evgeni Malkin and C Sidney Crosby still haven't recorded a third-period point on the season, but they assisted on D Alex Goligoski's overtime goal Friday night in a home win over the New York Islanders.
They referred to Malkin as RW, it's surely just a matter of time now, right? Maybe a couple more days?

If every player that played at winger or C got eligibility it would be chaos... that was my point, and that's probably why Yahoo (or their provider) don't constantly update eligibility. The difference for a player like Malkin is that everybody complains about it. And since you can't remove eligibility from a player, and for good reason, the only logical solution to shut up the complainers is to lock position eligibility at the start of the season. With all the effort people put into whining about this I'm surprised this isn't a more popular opinion.
