    • I understood what you meant. Why would you want him to be eligible at RW? He's more valuable at defense. Having him be RW/D eligible doesn't add to his value very much. Anyway....

      Hello Brock,

      Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Sports.

      I appreciate your inquiry with regards to player position eligibility.

      We never remove positions during the season, the off season is a totally
      different story.

      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.

      We appreciate your feedback. While we'd much rather address each request
      personally, it's simply not practical given the nature of the review
      process. Whenever you have further comments or questions, please feel
      free to email me again.

      Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Sports.

    • They might, but it would make sense to keep him in the d-man slot. Him playing RW in real life is the real bonus.
