    Yahoo’s fantasy hockey position tweaks signal end of a very specific era

    Few things deepen your hockey geekery quite like playing fantasy hockey. For sports haters and the sports-oblivious, it’s probably bad enough to see grown adults wearing hockey sweaters out in public. What about when someone is obsessing (and sometimes muttering profanities) about a team that only exists to about 8-15 people? Still, this is the Internet, where niche obsessions can go really deep.

There were a lot of bloated contracts connected to those days, but when you look at sites like Cap Friendly or General Fanager, the slate looks a lot cleaner heading into 2016-17. OK, so maybe you could also argue that there are still a few troubling deals to get rid of. Dennis Wideman‘s $5.25 million salary cap hit, Ladislav Smid‘s $3.5 million mark and Deryk Engelland‘s bewildering $2.917 million cap hit all expire after next season. Chances are, you have an issue with one
