In the East, The 9th to 12th place teams have 50 to 52 pts each, and have played at least one more game than the Isles who have a 7 to 9 point lead over these teams.

Basically, the 9th place team in the East would rank 13th in the West. And the 12th ranked team in the West would rank 9th in the East. This also means that if the playoffs started today, there would be one team in the West not making the playoffs even though they are 6 games above .500.
Very true after 8th spot in the east there is a BIG dropoff in terms of competitive teams but in the west there is probably 10/11 teams that could compete for playoffs spots.
