This Week's Tips
Jhop's IR hack with Yahoo continues to work. The lineup was set in advance to continually swap Stamkos and Franzen back and forth on an IR slot back when they flagged IR. Yahoo has since marked them as active, but because the lineup was set in advance, they are allowed to go back on IR. This will break as soon as a player is added, but allows an extra bench slot for now.
