NHL SEASON TO KHL16 (LEGACY) CONVERSION
Here we have mapped out plausible divisions using a world map, the official 2015/16 KHL conferences and simple logic. Naturally the NHL division names don't suit the KHL perfectly, but it does allow us to separate them quite nicely into 4 divisions over 2 conferences. You may notice that "Beijing Dragon" and "Vålerenga Ishockey" have been added to the mix to round out the league to 30 teams instead of the official 28 teams. I added these two bonus teams as China is already going to be part of the 2016/17 KHL season and VIF are on the most "plausable" list. In my opinion VIF, or Atlant Oblast are the two teams most likely to return or re-join the league in the near future.
Other Plauseable Teams To Join KHL In The Future;
Stavenger Oilers - GET-ligaen
Malmö Redhawks - Swedish Hockey League
***If you prefer, you can substitute either China Dragon and/or Vålerenga Ishockey below for either of both of the teams***
Those of you wishing to use only the 28 official teams can simply set up two seasons using the DEL or Czech league splitting east and west into two saves. This will more accurately resemble the official KHL as they only play 60 games and use the 3 point system.
The table below will be required to help you set up our custom KHL league correctly. Each conference is shown with each division within it. The location column shows where you can find each team in game when substituting teams from the NHL. The "real life" column shows how teams placed in the official KHL this season (2015/16). The EAKHL standings column shows the finals results from our official 2014/15 season online. Use this to guage how good a team is overall. 1st being best overall, 30th being last place overall.
