Commissioner Corner Message Board
Anyone else noticed errors in the box scores? I listened to the Red Wings game last night (Fri 10/26) and the goal at 0:39 in the 3rd was credited to Holmstrom with Zetterberg on the assist, not the other way around. The box score for Carolina clearly shows Justin Williams with a PP assist yet on the match up score tally he didn't get the credit. Wassup?
And what's with the plus/minus....
It seems to be way off sometimes. For example, last night the Sharks win (I was there) 4-1, Thorton has 2 helpers (ie; was on the ice) and has a plus/minus of 0. Error? Does Yahoo correct it? Or do you have to report it to get every little point?

Actually that 0 is right. He was on the ice when Phoenix scored their own goal even strength, so that -1. He was on the ice when he had an assist so +1 there making him as 0 for now and also had a ppa so that a 0, so he's ended up with a 0 for the night. You don't get a +1 if there team scored a powerplay goal.
here's a real BIG error yet to be corrected, Giguere credited for forty SECONDS not minutes of playing time. His GAA is a whopping 360.00 for the week so far.
My bigger question, why is it so hard to find a contact us link in the fantasy hockey to bring it to someone's attention?
I know there is one, and I have used it before, but every time I need it, it is a ten minute search for it. This time I stumbled by here, and thought I would bay at the moon a bit.

I am also interested in where to report known errors in boxscores to Yahoo! If someone knows where to do this please post a reply. Also, I noticed that someone mentioned that updates are done on Monday. Won't this negatively affect the H2H leagues as H2H matchups start on Monday, and the updates are for the prior week matchup that has already been scored?
I got a reply back from Yahoosnotright! They said it is reported by NHL.com as 2 assists.
I replied back and told them that NHL.com is wrong because I watched the game and Holmstrom definately scored. Told them I would even send them a recording of the game if need be.
Got another reply saying stats are corrected on Mondays, so who knows if that means they will fix it.

Reviving an old topic...I am the Commissioner of a H2H league and having some problems this morning.
Is there a place within Yahoo's hockey or fantasy hockey area that shows what scoring changes are/were made. Even after the fact, it helps explain things a little better to the owners.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the correction. Just goes to show you how wrong the yahoo box scores can be. This one, at least, hasn't hurt me in H2H but in a close match it could mean a loss instead of a win or tie.
Hey skipper. I saw the same thing and I have both Williams and Holmstrom. I even watched the Wings game - for sure Holmstrom scored a goal - I wasn't even drinking either. I know he scored.
I tried to report the error but not sure if I did it right.
Report it if you know how and I will try to find out more on how to report it. They are definite errors.
