    Great question.
    Yahoo! has actually made a few roster changes recently... that are... well, totally baffling.

    For example,
    Damien Brunner was given C, to be C/LW. But he's not centering the Wings top line.
    Brayden Schenn was given LW, to be C/LW. But he was playing RW on the Flyers top line.
    Cory Conacher was given C, to be C/LW. But he's not centering TB top line.

    Yahoo did get Jeff Carter a RW... finally, since he's been the RW in LA. Now C/RW.


    I wouldn't bank on Yahoo making the change.
    It comes from their "service provider", who I believe is NHL.com's service provider.

    I mean... James Neal is still listed by NHL.com as a LW... though he hasn't played there in over a year.

    In summary - don't count on Yahoo! making any changes.

    Blah that is what i was afraid of. Really need a LW right now so it sucks having two guys that currrently play LW in the real world who are unable to help me in fantasy.

    Thank you for the response.

    and so begins the constant eligibility struggle. They have Malkin listed as a C/RW. He hasn't played RW in two years and that was only briefly. I'll take the versatility though.
    10 Keepers (Finished 2nd, lose 1 keeper)
    C: Malkin; Pavelski (RW); B Richards; Granlund Neilsen
    LW:Nash; Ryan J Staal (C); Dubinsky(C); Vermette(C)
    RW:Gaborik;Kessel;St Louis;
    D: Green; Pietrangelo; Carlson;
    G: Halak; Bryzgalov; Lack
    IR:
    10 Team, 10 Keeper
    Head to Head: G,A,P,PPP,SHP,BS,FW,GAA,SV%,SO
    Daily changes: 3C, 3LW, 3RW, 4D, 1Util, 2G

    Don't mistake opinion for fact.
