Tuesday NHL DFS Breakdown: Line Stacks & Strategy
Tuesday NHL DFS Breakdown: Line Stacks & Strategy

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, 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 (31.5). With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) range is a best of 56.7 (TOR) to a worst of 45.1 (NYR), and the Defense Rating (DR) range is a best of 43.6 (NSH) to a worst of 58.4 (OTT) – Ottawa is so bad, the next worst team is 51.81(NYR). 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.
