KHL Statistical Power Rankings - First Round

KHL Statistical Power Rankings - First Round

10 Oct 2013 | Tim Bourcier
 

KHL Power Rankings based on the strength of teams played, goal differential and more.

 
 
 
 

Here is the first installment of the KHL Statistical Power Rankings.  These were put together to rank teams based on who they have defeated and by how much.  There is a full explanation of the formula here.  Feel free to comment on the system or let us know what we might be missing.  

Power Rankings

Rank Team Name GP Points Ranking
1 Barys Astana 13 43.4
2 SKA St. Petersburg 15 39.3
3 Dynamo Moscow 16 30.8
4 Metallurg MG 13 28.8
5 Dinamo Riga 14 28.1
6 KHL Medvescak Zagreb 15 28.1
7 Torpedo 14 24.3
8 Donbass 14 20.9
9 Ak Bars Kazan 15 19.2
10 Lokomotiv 14 19.0
11 Neftekhimik 13 18.6
12 Salavat Ufa 13 17.0
13 Severstal 14 16.7
14 Spartak 14 15.8
15 CSKA Moscow 15 15.1
16 Ugra 13 14.3
17 Traktor 12 13.8
18 Lev Praha 14 13.3
19 Admiral  13 12.2
20 Sibir Novosibirsk 13 11.1
21 Atlant 14 11.0
22 Slovan Bratislava 13 10.4
23 Vityaz 15 9.6
24 Amur 13 9.2
25 Avangard 14 7.1
26 Avtomobilist 14 7.0
27 Dinamo Minsk 13 4.4
28 Metallurg Nk 13 3.6
This helps with the question of who is better between Barys Astana and SKA St. Petersburg, with Barys getting the edge.  This is likely due to some huge wins they had early in the season, but nevertheless they take the top spot.  Medvescak is ranked high for defeating both Barys and SKA.  Slovan received a boost for beating Medvescak early in the season, so they are ranked higher than what they show up in the standings.  Is Slovan better than Minsk?  Probably not, but Minsk is not defeating any top teams yet, so this does not indicate it.  Good conversation stuff here.

This next ranking includes a multiplier based on classic (opinionated) KHL Power Rankings published over at The Hockey Writers.  It helps take into account a team having a bad week or two versus having a bad team overall.  Here is an additional set of rankings.

Momentum Rank Points Rank Team Name GP Momentum Ranking
1 1 Barys Astana 13 117.1
2 2 SKA St. Petersburg 15 109.9
3 3 Dynamo Moscow 16 80.0
4 5 Dinamo Riga 14 61.6
5 4 Metallurg MG 13 72.7
6 7 Torpedo 14 54.1
7 6 KHL Medvescak Zagreb 15 47.6
8 9 Ak Bars Kazan 15 43.0
9 8 Donbass 14 51.4
10 14 Spartak 14 22.8
11 11 Neftekhimik 13 26.1
12 18 Lev Praha 14 17.4
13 16 Ugra 13 18.0
14 10 Lokomotiv 14 26.8
15 20 Sibir Novosibirsk 13 22.7
16 15 CSKA Moscow 15 19.8
17 12 Salavat Ufa 13 12.8
18 13 Severstal 14 25.2
19 21 Atlant 14 11.4
20 17 Traktor 12 24.0
21 19 Admiral  13 17.8
22 22 Slovan Bratislava 13 10.4
23 23 Vityaz 15 9.6
24 24 Amur 13 9.2
25 25 Avangard 14 7.1
26 26 Avtomobilist 14 7.0
27 27 Dinamo Minsk 13 4.4
28 28 Metallurg Nk 13 3.6
Spartak and Lev jump higher in these rankings because the multiplier helps them due to recent losses.  This could change if they cannot get it back on track.  Traktor and Admiral are worse here as they are just starting to turn things around.  If they can keep the momentum going, then they can move up in these rankings.

Enjoy and discuss these with your friends!
