This article is part of our NHL DFS Breakdown series.
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 shots on goal (31.7). With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) range is a best of 54.7 (TOR) to a worst of 45.5 (DET), and the Defense Rating (DR) range is a best of 44.2 (NSH) to a worst of 57.7 (OTT) – Ottawa is so bad, the next worst team is only a 51.9 (MON). 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.
Slate Preview: Tuesday, November 27, 2018
The Main Slate on Tuesday has 10 games with only one team on a back-to-back (Ottawa), so most teams will be rested and facing a rested opponent; five teams are playing the front end of a back-to-back, so we may see some backup goalies in net Tuesday. Both sites have highlighted events tonight with the FanDuel Super Goal ($33) and DraftKings Tuesday Special ($20). The following
