This article is part of our NHL DFS Breakdown series.Please see this previous article for the basic strategy write-up.
My rankings are determined by a Corsi-based Rating System that I created, which has an average Rating of 49.0 per game. This represents the total number of shot attempts per game either for or against, like Corsi, but it's also adjusted for Shooting Percentage and Save Percentage. Any shot attempt counts, whether it is on goal, off target or blocked, which is why the average hovers around 49, rather than the league average 31.5 shots on goal. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) range is a best of 57.5 (CAR) to a worst of 44.9 (VAN), and the Defense Rating (DR) range is a best of 44.8 (NSH) to a worst of 56.4 (OTT) – these numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups. I am hoping these values clearly show how good or bad a team ranks by equating it to shot attempts per game.
