Which teams are likely to make a playoff run in the final push?

 
 
 
 

Most teams have ten or eleven games left in the season and we have two weeks of games before the Winter Olympic break.  The playoffs are on the horizon and it is time to see who are the contenders and pretenders.  Here are the latest rankings!

The top four teams in the league stayed the same.  This is despite Metallurg Magnitogorsk currently having the best record in the Eastern Conference.  Metallurg actually dropped a spot in the rankings, suggesting they are mostly beating bad teams, or teams they beat at the beginning of the season are not doing so well now.

The big movers up are KHL Medvescak Zagreb into the fifth spot and Donbass Donetsk into the seventh spot (both teams moved up two places).  The big dropper was Torpedo Novgorod, down three spots.  However, Torpedo is still ranked number nine overall in the rankings and fifth in the Eastern Conference.  They likely will make the playoffs, but it appears they will not be much of a threat to take the Gagarin Cup. 

Other interesting notes include Spartak Moscow moving up one spot although they have had a huge losing streak and Slovan not moving at all while they have been winning.  This means the rankings are actually working!  Spartak was not as good as advertised when they were near a Western Conference playoff spot and Slovan was not as bad as it seemed when they were dwelling at the bottom of the league.  It appears the formula picked that up, but the actual standings were not reflecting this at the time.  Atlant it appears will not likely get into the playoffs based on their drop in the rankings, unless they have a soft schedule ahead of them.  Admiral Vladivostok has a good shot, sitting in the 15th spot and just one point below Traktor Chelyabinsk for the final spot in the Eastern Conference.
