Yes,IR designation by Yahoo happens the day after the team declares it to the NHL. But I HAVE seen DTD status given during the day...really...unless I've become delusional after too much time on the board....
OK --I'm whining--but it's been announced Perreault will be "out for a few games". Our Yahoo pool status changes should be quick and responsive, not sleepy and ho-hum.

Smack Talk actually still exists. It is awkwardly and almost invisibly located in the top right corner of your league page. So yes, it exists....but now no one uses it. And because no one uses it, no one uses it. Such a shame to lose what was a fun part of the pool experience. Yahoo techies are generally great at improvements to the pool and interactive experiences. This time tho'...they swung and whiffed, losing the ball in the process. Disappointing....

Thanks for this interpretation Dan. I don't mind being wrong if I learn something new. Good luck in your pool(s)
yes, whine,whine---but a delayed penalty on Saad just before Brouwer's game winner should not show up as 2 PIMs in the game summary. The NHL erred here--and (whine,whine) my H2H opponent now has a lead in the PIMs category because of this error. I'll watch for a correction at source---but I'm guessing it'll be a belated Xmas gift for my opponent. And btw---the call on Toews was pure H!@#E S*?T. Where do they find these zebras anyway?.....

I agree--the "old format" was so much better. Now no one Smack Talks in my two leagues. It's a big step back in pool interaction, which is surprising, because Yahoo generally does a great job at improvements. Not this time though....

Christine--thx for making this crystal clear. It will lead to some gamesmanship and luck---ie if a Gman gets a shutout in the first goalie appearance of the week, a team will shutdown its Gmen and likely win 3 of 4 or at least 2 of 4 scoring categories---but it's good you've set the rule in stone. It's up to Commishes to inform all managersas most don't read "notes"----
Today's comment on Tarasenko says "he's one of the best young forwards in the NHL. If you own him, you probably shouldn't let him go." ...duhh... I mean,who does the author of that statement think he/she is writing for? Come on Yahoo, let's get a little more insightful, and respectful of poolies. Drop the "master of the obvious" statements---Thx, ---Yahoo is still the best Fantasy Pool format, bar none....
