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

This article is part of our NHL DFS Breakdown series.

Please see my previous article for the leading strategy write-up.

I've made another small change to the magnitude of my Rating System, which has an average 49.0 Rating per game. The total represents the number of shot attempts per game either for or against, like Corsi, but it's also adjusted for Shooting Percentage and Save Percentage. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) range is a best of 56.8 (CAR) to a worst of 44.2 (ANH), and the Defense Rating (DR) range is a best of 44.1 (CAR) to a worst of 55.4 (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, whether those are on goal, off target, or blocked shots – they are still offensive chances for or against.
