Injured players in the NHL often officially day to day and then are placed on IR retroactively. THis gives their team cap relief for the whole time period but is no help for the fantasy maanger . ON other sites that host fantasy hockey they allow a player that is out "dtd " to be placed on the fantasy IR. I raised this in a suggestion to yahoo last year but they have done nothing and I have had some leaguyes move away from yahoo as a result .
The fix should be easy and frankly if this isnt fixed I could see all my leagues migrating elsewhere next year ,
Come on yahoo... do something in your own interest here !!!
Oh brother TELL ME ABOUT ÌT! It burns my butt when when yahoo in their player notes tells you the player is going to be out "a few weeks", and yet keep him on dtd... Great example. Burrows dropped by over 3k teams cause he is OUT for awhile, but you can't put him anywhere. Or a guy like James Neal. Can't drop him, but can't use him either... Just terrible!

Just curious but is there any chance anything will be done , IN keeper leagues last year it was incredibly frustrating when some players that were too good to drop were on dtd status for WEEKS. It seemed teams could wait until the player is ready to return and then IR them retroactive to the date of the injury . THis makes a mockery of having IR slots in a fantasy league
Idea would be a toggle that the commish could set -- either 1. IR applied only to actual NHL IR and 2, IR applies to all injured whether IR or dtd . Do it that way and I see no downside
