    Hi

    Which is the most popular/best fantasy hockey platform to use?

    I have not done one before. ESPN and Yahoo seem popular but are there any others that I should take a look at?

    Many thanks!

    My league has been using ESPN for the past 10 years so we're pretty rooted there, but they recently updated their look/experience and it has been super buggy/slow. I've never used the others, but it's hard for me to imagine they're worse than ESPN

    ESPN fantasy hockey just went down nationwide the day before the season. My league that drafts in 5 minutes? Gone. My league that drafted last night? Forget about it.

    I'd say Yahoo.

    Fantrax has a new streamlined website that actually uses less data them some apps. Plus they are adding MACOS, Linux, Chrome OS and Windows desktop apps that will have push notifications soon. I don't think anyone else can even come close to that. Fantrax is pushing the envelope.

    Thanks for all of the replies.

    Sounds like Fantrax is the way to go!

    I wonder if I can join any mid-season...

    Used ESPN last year, it was meh.

    Using Yahoo current and honestly I'm kinda preferring the way ESPN's worked...

    Next year I'll probably try FANTRAX.

    ESPN was good last year, bu they ruined it this year with the new layout. Fantasy basketball suffering the same fate as hockey now too. Worst new software launch ever?

    Does Fantrax have an app?
