    Position Eligibility

    So.... You and I are both wondering when guys like Dany Heatley, Milan Michalek, Scott Hartnell, Michael Cammalleri and Martin Erat are going to be able to play at more than one position. Well, I sent an inquiry to Yahoo and this is what I received in return. I'm still sort of wondering what this means exactly. Yahoo says that players cannot lose eligibility, so.... Why aren't these guys eligible at more than one position like they were last season.

    (((((Hello Brock,

    Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Sports.

    I appreciate your inquiry with regards to player position eligibility.

    Players may be eligible at multiple positions during the current Yahoo!
    Sports Fantasy Hockey season. Initial position eligibility was
    determined based on past participation and information supplied by the
    teams during the off-season.

    * All position eligibility requests are reviewed, compiled and
    forwarded to our data provider. A final determination on position
    eligibility is made by our data provider.

    * Please understand that since Yahoo! is not responsible for
    modifying position eligibility, we cannot speculate on future changes or
    comment on the decisions made regarding individual player(s).

    * There are no set criteria (minimum number of games, minutes, etc.
    at a new position) for position eligibility. A new position will be
    added when our data provider determines that a player's primary position
    has changed.

    * Players will never lose position eligibility. )))))
