May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor: 2015 Stanley Cup Odds


The 2014 Stanley Cup has been given out, and true to form the odds makers have already pick the 2015 winner. At this point of the year, these odds are at best an uneducated guess. There are still going to be trades, free agency signings and call ups. But, because it’s fathers day here is some easy reading.

It seems that odds makers are still in love with the Chicago Blackhawks; giving them the nod as the odds on favorite. This could be the Blackhawks last run at the top spot. They will need to make some hard choices in the near future. Both Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews need new contracts, and that doesn’t take into consideration the natural aging process of some of their players.

Sorry, Buffalo Sabres fans you are still sitting in the bottom of the league. Your team has been given the worst odds of winning the Stanley Cup, not that you are at all shocked. Buffalo is in the early stages of a complete rebuild and there are no illusions of winning the cup in 2015. There are some that believe the Sabres may tank it to make it, but that is still to be seen. This off-season is one of the most important in Sabres history.

It’s seems like the same old teams may once again battle it out for the NHL Stanley Cup. However, as we saw this year there is always a teams that surprises everyone. In the words of The Hunger Games, “May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor”
