Commissioner Corner Message Board
does anyone know how to contact Yahoo or what the email address is? It's a joke Wade Belak's position eligibility is updated before Dany Heatley's......who has been on the left side pretty much since the Hossa trade. I also have Rolston and Recchi waiting to gain left wing status
I finally figured out where Yahoo gets this info. If you go to NHL.com and check an event summary for any game, It will tell you what position that player is listed under by his team.
And Prospal is still listed as a center for Tampa Bay that is why it will not change. Camallieri for the Kings is in the same situation.
It does not matter where they are playing, it matters what position their team list them as.

Exactly. The NHL HQ is at the root of the problem. However, TSN and other sites have the correct positions, so yahoo should be able to fix the error as well. In the meantime, we should all send in email to the NHL - it is embarrassing that NHL HQ has the wrong positions. What makes it worse, is that they control all of the teams websites now and rosters on the internet (except for the rangers, pending a lawsuit).
i wrote to yahoo... "i am writing to you once again concerning the position eligiblity in Yahoo! I am the comisioner of my league and everyone is completely frustrated with the lack of updates in positions. In fact, if you take some time to read the message boards, you will see this issue is major accross most of your leagues. Owners are becoming frustrated over how many players are incorrectly eligible. Please, have your data provider review this as soon as you can, as it will only benifit the reputation of your Fantasy Sports programs."
they wrote back... "Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Sports. I appreciate your inquiry with regards to position eligibility. We know that many of our player positions are incorrect. We are in the process of improving how these changes are made and unfortunately it is not something that will happen over night. Please rest assured that I am personally making it my #1 priority to ensure that all player positions in Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey are correct, though this could take weeks to months as we streamline our processes. Thank you for your patience in this matter. Whenever you have further comments or questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you again for contacting Yahoo! Sports. Regards, Morris Yahoo! Customer Care"
Dustin penner of the oilers is a right wing on yahoo but is playing leftwing on hemsky's(rw) line
don't fret though for the eastern teams yahoo seems to get this straigt in about 3 to 4 weeks, the western teams may or may not get noticed
also kopitar(sp) and camleri(sp) are listed as centers but on yahoo's own depth charts it is different. another one that needs fixing.
By the looks of my complaint list i need help cause these guys all suck in fantasy value.
Very frustrating for all of us. I do find it funny though about Belak as RW/D. Were all in the same boat here i too have Prospal, Staal, and Boyes. You would think Yahoo would have its act together. I guess the only thing to do is keep adding to this post, thats why i did. You would think also that they would have someone who knows hockey working this thing.... i share your frustrations. This really sucks.
All of the positions for these players are incorrect when they are compared to yahoo's "ROSTER DEPTH CHART" from the team pages. I'm sure I've missed a few as well!!

This is downright embarassing. Tuomo Ruutu is listed as a C as well, and he's been a LW for the past year and a half. PM Bouchard is listed as a C, he's playing right wing on Rolston's line. This week, this is costing me potential points. tuesday, I am short a LW. I have Ruutu on my roster but can't play him because Yahoo has the position listed wrong. If they don't fix this, I'll take my league to another site. I've emailed them twice, and they ignored both emails.
