Obviously Yahoo's site is a piece of shit, just like people working there ... I suggest you drop st-louis, drop your league & close your yahoo account. There are so many better options than dealing with a bunch of retards that don't give a shit about their users because they're so big and wealthy ... they seem to forget they made their fortune because of people like you & I. So let's show them we can't be taken for granted & stop using their site

Seriously? it is fantasy hockey. Also, it isn't even yahoo. Stats Inc. will only update injury status when it is official with the NHL. Yahoo outsources all statistics and playing statuses for all players. This discussion occurs every time, just deal with it like everything else.
wouldn't reduce the whining.
if yahoo picked an arbitrary time, like 3 weeks...people would immediately start whining that it should be 2 weeks. if yahoo picks 2 weeks, the whining would be for 1 week.
waaah, my guy has diarrhea and isn't playing tonight, he should be on IR! waaaaah.
arbitrary doesn't work.
Obviously you like it that way,
and I think that if a player is hurt, he is hurt, and can go on fantasy IR, regardless of is there is ** beside his name on the club website.
I thought it was stupid when people in my league couldn't use IR for the likes of Miller, Booth etc. for extended periods of time. If someone else in my league had St.Louis, I'd be fine if they could put him on IR, as I know I would have the same courtesy if I had a player in the same situation.
Yahoo (or any other fantasy provider) shouldn't make exceptions.
What if you were up against someone who owned St Louis? Would you want him to be able to IR him when he doesnt deserve to be IRed?
Fantasy hockey is based on what happens in real life. And unlike ESPN (from what i hear) yahoo goes strictly by what goes on in real life.
And I think thats the best way to do it. Its the fairest way to do it.
does it suck to own a guy that doesnt have IR when hes out a long period of time?? YES
hopefully st louis gets real life IR & then your problems will be solved.
Same thing happened with Miller. The team took FOREVER to put him on IR. but when they did... yahoo did the following day.
its just the way it is & the way (i believe) it should be.
I know, and I'm not confused about how IR works. However, if a player is going to be out for an extended period of time, he should be eligible for IR regardless of how their club chooses to use their IR, as the NHL clubs IR is totally irrelevant to the fantasy league. It is flawed because a player on a team close to the salary cap will get a player on IR asap because they need to clear room for a recall. If a player gets hurt on some dump team like Nashville, the IR won't make a difference, so they may take longer to get on IR, if ever.
The salary status of the players NHL club, has nothing whatsoever with what we are doing, so if a player is not day to day, and it is known that they are going to be out for 3 weeks or more, IR should be active.

We don't care. So we have to wait for some **** in Tampa to update the website? Guy has a broken face. So if he was on a team in a hockey market that actually updates their website he goes on IR, but its in ****ing Tampa so no IR?
Not a good system. He's on IR as far as the NHL is concerned.
