My rankings are determined by a Corsi-based Rating System that I created, the average Rating is about 49 per game. Like Corsi, this represents the total number of shot attempts per game either for or against, 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 (31.6). With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) range is a best of 56.0 (TOR) to a worst of 44.5 (NYR), and the Defense Rating (DR) range is a best of 43.4 (BOS) to a worst of 58.1 (OTT) – Ottawa is so bad, the next worst team is 52.2 (WAS). 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, December 4, 2018
The Main Slate on Tuesday has 10 games with only Buffalo and Tampa Bay on the second leg of a back-to-back and no teams on the front end. There are a lot of options, both expensive and value plays Tuesday, so coming up with a single lineup is going to be difficult; if you haven't done it before, tonight is a good night to try your first multi-entry day.
